On tap at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth.
The beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large white head. The aroma is wheat and grain with some Belgian yeast notes mixed in. I also get a little orange citrus in the aroma.
The flavor is a mix of wheat, biscuit malt and grain with some banana and spice notes. I also get a little bit of citrus and some Belgian yeast. The alcohol is noticeable but not overwhelming.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Had this on tap at the Holy Grail after work. Good beer selection and good food. The THREE is very (512). Solid beer that's hard to complain about. I'm not sure that I'd clamor for them to make this again, but I'd order it over a lot of beers if it was around.
The beer is a hazy straw color. I always have a hard time judging a beer unless I pour it myself... Still, this doesn't stand out to me in any way.
The nose is banana upon first whiff. Much more than I expected. Further approaches find some booze, wheat and black pepper. I'd call it solidly bold.
The taste is banana, but that's matched by an aggressive wheat/straw flavor. The spices come last and round out the beer. The spices are clove and pepper according to my palate.
The THREE is very drinkable and solid. Let's leave it at that.

DISCLAIMER* I've only recently begun seeking out new and different craft beers, ,so I'm not an expert, at all...
I found this beer at Craft & Growler in Dallas, TX. The bartender recommended I add this to my flight, which consisted of Dogfish Head Bitches Brew, Deep Ellum Wealth & Taste, and Community Mosaic. He assured me that if I enjoyed Dogfish Head and Wealth & Taste that this would be a great choice for a lighter beer (not as dark as Bitches Brew or W&T), but would carry some power.
I completed my flight (four 5 oz glasses of each), and I was really impressed by the taste of the 512 beer. It goes down smoothly, but there's a hoppieness to it, so you know you're drinking beer. I'm not 100% sure what a Trippel is, but I've had a few other varieties, and they were more pungent. This was very pleasurable.
Ultimately, ,when I left the establishment, I decided to go home with a growler. Between the 512 and Dogfish Head's Bitches Brew, it would be a hard choice -- except for the fact that the Dogfish Head was nearly 3X the price.. and, although very tasty, wasn't particularly more memorable than this one... I didn't get the Wealth & Taste because it's very very flavorful, and I wasn't sure I'd be able to drink all of it in 48 hours.
So, yeah.. I highly recommend!
