22oz bottle

A- Pours a dark golden yellow color with orangish hues mixed in and an off-white head with good retention and lacing.

S- The aroma is very fruity with corriander and other spices along with banana and some alcohol floating around in the background as well.

T- The taste has a little bit of fruity sweetness up front with a smooth and slightly dry finish and some warmth from the alcohol.

M- The mouthfeel is between light and medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, not a bad Tripel at all. It isn't my favorite beer style in the world but I can enjoy a quality beer from the style every once in a while. Worth a try.

Appearance: Hazy, light honey orange; medium frothy white head, long lasting; effervescent

Taste: Citrusy, slightly dry start; a little bready in the mid with a mix of Belgian yeast; finishes semi-sweet with pepper and light alcohol; very tasty overall

Mouthfeel: Juicy and smooth; medium body with zippy carbonation

Remarks: I'd definitely buy this again

Pours a transparent amber with a big font white head.

The smell is Belgian yeast, bubblegum and bananas. There's also some spices and a little hops.

The taste is yeasty, coriander, finishing with some sweetness and bitterness. I can detect just a bit of alcohol on the finish.

The mouthfeel is quite light with low to medium carbonation.

Overall a pretty good tripel, one of the first American craft beers I'd tried and one I would definitely return to on occasion.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into an Innis & Gunn flute.

a: Clear gold topped by a finger thick white head which dissipated to heavy surface foam and considerable lacing.

s: Peach or apricot..

t: Piney hops followed by a Belgian fruit cocktail. Both refreshing and easy-drinking. The higher ABV (7.8%) is concealed nicely.

m: Moderate with more body than might be expected from such a light-colored brew.. Slickish.

o: A well-made Belgian Tripel which is likely to please hop lovers as well. A good buy at the $1.89 I paid at Honeygo Wine & Spirits in Perry Hall Maryland in June.
