A: Yellow, yellow, perhaps a touch of amber. Pretty thin head with a decent lace that dissipates quickly. By the way, generic looking label. Meh.

S: This is where it starts to knock your socks off. Belgian yeast abbey ale goodness with some banana esters, spices and an indescribable crispness if that's possible with smell.

T: Delicate fruity and banana sweetness, bready and slight spices. Mouthfeel is nice and crispy with a warm alcohol and Belgian yeast finish. Stated simply, if you like Belgian Trippel Ales with the famous yeast and banana esters, you will like this.

O: Excellent crisp, slightly spicy and balanced Trippel.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The brew pours a medium golden color with a one finger white heed. The head fades fast leaving a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is mainly of a bit of bready malt mixed with a spice of coriander. Some citrus notes of orange are present as well and are mixed with some floral and yeasty smells. A very light banana smell is there as well giving it a more mild but pleasant Belgian triple aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a crisp bready flavor with lots of citrus flavors mixed within. A lighter yeast taste comes in soon after the initial taste with some spice notes of coriander and some grassy flavors. Floral notes come to the tongue with a lighter alcohol flavor coming more toward the end. At its finish, a nice smooth and crisp lighter Belgian triple taste is left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is on the average to slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the medium side. The lighter body and medium carbonation are great for the style and make a crisper and more refreshing brew matching the citrus, floral and light bready flavors very well.

Overall – A moderately good triple with nice flavors and an easy drinking taste and feel. Matched with the moderate price for a triple, overall it is quite nice.
