Served in a pint glass on-tap at the Aviator Brewery (in the hanger!!)
Ruddy gold in color with a slight cloudiness. Nice 2 fingers or so of dense white foam that was relatively persistent, leaving behind some respectable lace.
Aromas were fairly clean with plenty of bready sweet spicy malts. If you are familiar with trippels, this carries a familiar scent.
A fairly vibrant push of flavor comes forth immediately as it rolls over the tongue, some light malt sweetness, a little bit of yeast, some fruit zest & coriander, all staying pretty tight through the experience. The finish was relatively quick but with a touch of warming to remind you that it's no lightweight. The linger carries a bit more of that spicy fruitiness. Pretty nice.
The carbonation was decent on this but I thought it was a bit course. I nice light persistent carbonation would add a much needed creaminess to this brew and enhance the mouthfeel. The overall drinkability was very good in my opinion and I thanked the brewer personally for not making it too sweet! Nice brew and great people at the brewery. Definitely check it out if you get the chance!

12oz can poured into a goblet
A: Hazy golden color with a 1/2-finger head
S: Malty with a good dose of Belgian yeast, banana and clove
T: Banana first and foremost, a bit of bubblegum, spice (mostly clove) and some Belgian yeast/malt
M: Medium-bodied, smooth. The alcohol is super hidden
O: Not so complex but super tasty in my book. I don't get the 85 average, to me it's much better. Balanced and pure flavors. Better as it warmed up, definitely will be a re-buy if I can find it

Thanks to dogdoc for sending this one. Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a Florida Berliner Bash snifter.
A: Bright yellow with a faint haze. Forms a thin white head but with tons of active carbonation.
S: Fruity yeast esters (green apple, banana, and pear) with some pilsner malt and mild spices.
T: Follows the nose – fruit esters as in the nose, then pilsner malt with subdued sulfuric qualities show up, but dissipate under more fruit (especially green apple), cloves and light bubblegum flavor. The fruity sweetness lasts into the hang.
M: Light bubbly body, low alcohol presence, and a great amount of carbonation sensation.
O: This lacks something in the depth of flavor department from the best tripels, but it's far from offensive. Easy to drink, and pretty tasty. A reasonable quality tripel in a can! A nice surprise for sure.

A tripel, in a can. Never thought I'd see this, but here goes.
A: Poured a hazy golden with about a finger of head. Looked like sunshine with cotton candy on top.
S: The white fruits predominate. I do smell the yeast, but the pear and grapefruit are out front. Close to a white wine. Outstanding and very unique.
T: The fruits don't come out as much in the taste for me. An above average tripel that doesn't take any chances, but comes out very balanced with the yeast and malts. This is still a very sweet beer; I don't taste the hops like it says on the can, but this is kind of par for the course. Very good, but doesn't rise to the next level.
M: Spot on for the style, just the right amount of carbonation, weight, and no weird aftertaste. Great, but again, not absolutely rocking the world great.
