12 oz bottle into pint glass. YES! Another Belgium style ale from Great Divide, which has quickly become my favorite brewery (Heyday, Nomad, Titan). This guy pours a strawish yellow gold with 10% orange added. Very opaque. Smooth on the tongue. Overall, best Belgian ale I've yet tried. Cheers!

12oz bottle poured into a goblet. Bottled on 12/13/2012

Appearance: Hazy, golden yellow color. Less than a finger of white head dissipated almost instantly.

Smell: Spicy, phenolic, banana, pear, orange, slightly floral.

Taste: Follows the nose pretty closely. Spice, yeast, banana, coriander, citrus.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, sticky mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Goes down incredibly smooth

Overall: Really good American interpretation on a Belgian style Tripel. Great Divide doesn't get the same level of hype as some other craft breweries, but I've yet to have a beer from them that disappoints.
