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

Served on tap at the brewery in a heavy 12 oz. goblet.

Appearance: Hazy orange yellow topped with a small white head. Very little head retention and no lacing whatsoever.

Smell: Fruity bananas and cloves with a healthy dose of yeasty bread, alcohols, and pepper.

Taste: Lots of residual sugar in this. Sweet fruity tastes of bananas and apples with a slight aftertaste of ginger and clove. Very yeasty and peppery.

Mouthfeel: A little overly brash with the alcohol burn with feisty aftertastes. Heartily middleweight in heft.

Drinkability: A little too sweet, verging on cloying, to my tastes. Aking to Red Sky at Night. A decent DT clone rather than a tripel, but these styles overlap a lot anyways. Worth trying, though.

Serving type: on-tap
@ Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery, 4283 Wilson Blvd. (Ballston Common Mall), Arlington
