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.

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.

Love New Belgium beers. At first I was leery to try this because coriander usually overpowers the ale flavors but this beer nailed it! Smell is all coriander but the taste is complex and a great drink ability. Yet another great beer from Fort Collins, CO.
