Tap pour into goblet at babo market in Ann Arbor.
A: Dark goldish yellow with typical tripel lacing
S: Sweet fruit, lots of banana and spice
T: The spice and sweet smells continue uninterrupted into the taste, which is surprisingly sharp and defined for a tripel. Banana, pepper, and wheat are the first flavors that spring to mind.
M: Strong carbonation with this tripel. Slightly syrupy finish that coats the mouth nicely and helps back up the "sugariness" of this beer that perhaps help explain the name.
O: I can't say it's my favorite tripel. There's a lot of good ones out there and this is to me lacks the depth of some of the other Belgians and even some American examples. But the crispness here, enhanced by healthy carbonation, is a pleasant surprise.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours hazy, yellow-golden beer with stiff and huge white head. Aroma is citrusy, fruity (banana), spicy (coriander, clove), yeasty, simultaneously similar to witbier, owing to wheat.
Taste is rich, at first warming and full of alcohol, lemony, zesty, semisweet. Raw grains on palate. I'm very disappointed, the beer looks like overfermented witbier, lacking tripel charming significantly.

Beauty incarnate. Light and bubbly on the tough, light and bubbly in a snifter. Smells of banana, clove, biscuit, and a pleasant time about to come. Holds a steady stream of carbonation from first pour to last sip. A sneaky little bugger, too; you'd never guess it's 9.0 abv by smell or taste.
And you can find it at Costco, too, at least in Michigan. Never would have thought, but never more appreciative.
