Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Stone Ruination IPA pint glass
From: Total Wine & More in Ballantyne (Charlotte), N.C.
Price: $2.99
Purchased: Sept. 9, 2014
Consumed: Sept. 16, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a golden, straw, semi-hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head. No bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass initially, but then came up after a few sips. Sporadic spots of foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.77)

Smelled banana, cloves, sugary Belgian spices, kiwi, green grapes, faint all-spice, honeycomb and light cinnamon. Nice on the nose. (Smell - 4.09)

Tasted real close to the nose, but better in all aspects. Very nice. The sugary sweet Belgian spices dominated here. Also cloves, banana, green grapes, kiwi, caramel, all-spice and sugary honey notes. (Taste - 4.25)

Medium body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Long, astringent finish. (Feel - 4.15)

This was a very good Tripel. I wish I had a 6-pack. (Overall - 4.15)

A big thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of fruits, malts, a touch of sweetness. Taste is malty, spices, light fruits, alcohol is present throughout, very mild hops. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Can from tipples. Definitely my first canned tripel. Pours clear golden colored with a creamy half finger head on top. Dusty funky aroma, some light banana esters, yeasties, dry. Flavor is sweet banana esters, some pears, maybe a hint of spice, honey, and light yeast funk lingering on the palate. The 9.2% shows on this, with low plus carbonation. Was not expecting that until I took a sip as the nose is very much traditional dry dusty Belgian tripel, but the taste is very much like other overly sweet American attempts at the Tripel. Not bad but a little heavier than I want in this style.
