4.28/5 rDev +11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured into a Sniffer Glass
Appearance - Dark Yellow/Golden color with significant cloudy unfiltered haze. Head is around a half finger in width which disappears rather quickly, leaving behind a white film. The lacing is a bit sparse here.
Smell - Cloves, Bubblegum, Caramel, Piney Hops, Yeasts, Rye and Malts. Complex aroma yet not overpowering, but rich in it's own right and I like the Rye aspect of the smell. There's also a "Barleywine" like characteristic to the smell, the sweet and hoppy aroma that usually is common in Barleywine style ales.
Taste - Bananas, Cloves, Caramel, Barley, Rye, Yeasts, and Floral Hops. It's like drinking a Hefeweizen mixed with a Belgian Pale Ale, which works out very well. To top it off, there's no boozy flavor here either!
Mouthfeel - Body comes off a feeling light and a little too watery for this style of ale. There is some mild carbonation here, but it helps with adding some kick to the flavor which is a plus!
Overall - I throughly enjoyed this. I missed breweries like Flat Earth while I was away in Chicago and beers like this make me really appreciate small Minnesota breweries like Flat Earth. The body is a little off but the flavor is so damned good that it's very easy to overlook. If you're ever in the Twin Cities area, it's worth your time and money to pick this up.

On tap and in growler.
Pours a wonderful golden color. A good amount of head upon pouring, but not a persistent amount like some other Belgian styles I have experienced.
Esters are the main smell I detect. Bananas and citrus are the strong aromas I detect.
It tastes very similar. I get the banana flavors at the beginning, a hint of the orange left behind from the orange blossom honey, and a bit of alcohol burn and sweet bready maltiness at the end.
What I really enjoy about this beer is that orange flavor that is added when they fermented it with orange blossom honey; it's a nice touch that I really enjoyed.
Mouthfeel is great. It is the right consistency for a stronger alcohol beer. It is not thick and overly sweet.
Overall a good beer. It was my gateway beer and I look forward to it every year. My only complaints are the strong alcohol burn and the lack of head retention. It still doesn't stop me from seeking it out! One of my favorites.

Poured from 22 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: Pours a bright and clear golden yellow with a moderate amount of rising bubbles. About a finger of white head that quickly fades into a small thin patch. Lacing is very light.
Smell: Aroma of Belgian yeast and wheat grains with some clove spice and candied sugar. Hints of banana, orange, lemon, and honey. Smells a bit more like a Hefeweizen than a traditional Tripel.
Taste: Big presence of Belgian yeast and wheat grains up front. Spicy clove follows with a fairly strong taste of fruits including banana, orange, and lemon. Candied sugar and a hint of honey adds to the sweetness. Also a hint of noble hops and a taste of bready caramel malts that comes towards the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Crisp and very smooth. None of the alcohol is felt.
Overall: An interesting and tasty take on a Tripel. Very fruity but not too sweet.

Lacing and retention are pretty poor for the style. Otherwise fine.
Smell is mostly yeasty, hint of green apple too.
Belgian yeast, hint of bubble gum, some green apple, rustic bread notes.
Well carbonated, medium bodied, would be way too sweet if it weren't so well carbonated.
