look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy dark gold with what I can only describe as a "loose" head. The head was about 1 finger thick and consisted of larger coarse bubbles that faded quickly to a light skim.

Smell is very estery with some nice breadiness and fruity sweetness. Very nice.

Taste is on the sweet side with floral elements, a nice hop balance and a malty bready finish. Also nice.

Nice and creamy mouthfeel that adds to the taste in my opinion.

Nice a drinkable and I will buy again when in Indiana.

Sapent Trip pours a nice golden color with a good sized non lacing head. There is a strong ester and yeast like aroma. The flavor has a strong banana taste and is very creamy. There is a good feel and good body to this beer, with strong flavors. Overall its full of creamy banana flavors.

Serving type: on-tap

12 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled on 5/6/2014. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of apricot, orange, golden raisin, pear, apple, light banana, clove, pepper, biscuit, candi sugar, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast ester and bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of apricot, orange, golden raisin, pear, apple, light banana, clove, biscuit, candi sugar, herbal, floral, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, golden raisin, pear, apple, light banana, clove, biscuit, candi sugar, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and fairly crisp/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice tripel style. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
