(enjoy by 28 Jun 2015 - carefully poured into a balloon)

A: damn crystal clear, cheesy gold color... very attractive 2-finger width messy off-white foam... drapes of thin, webby lace to and fro... shows some legs, which seems strange... 4.25

S: smells like a trappist tripel - I wanna say Westmalle... fresh-baked cracker, moderately toasty granola, wonderful mellow spicy phenolics, miniscule fusel booze... a touch flowery, not a ton of overt fruitiness... overall, fine intensity, first-class American-made tripel character... 4.25

T: assertive interplay between toasted and mildly-caramelized, woody malt notes and spicy yeast character - mild black pepper, bubblegum, mild clove... shouts it out loud on the palate... the malt truly comes across like a honey-kissed, whole-grain hors d'oeuvre cracker... lingering, moderately sweetish tone midway though quite, but not bone dry finish... almost pedio/lactic edge to the bitterness... the coriander doesn't really sing like it does in Tripel Karmeliet... alcohol very well hidden... 4.25

M: almost but not quite medium-bodied up front, with a gentle viscosity in the follow through... certainly dry, quiet, but curiously silky finish.. stealth alcohol - no heat, no burn - rinses the tension away... 4.5

O: now that I think of it, this tastes very much like Golden Monkey with a touch more depth and hardness in flavor... it's a very enjoyable beer and I could see grabbing a six-pack once or twice a year - if they sold it in my state!... 4.27?

Poured a deep clear gold with a nice foamy white head. The head has minor retention but leaves a moderate amount of lacing. The aroma is very reminiscent of banana with just a hint of spice. The taste has the characteristics of a trippel but is somewhat muted by comparison. There isn't a huge amount of fruity esters or spice. They're there, but not prominent. The body has a nice weight on the palate, not too heavy or too watery. This is a good beer, but the market appears to have passed it by.
