A: Pours a translucent bright light gold with tons of effervescence and two full fingers of pure white head. The foam takes a bit to settle,leaving a big rocky layer of bubbles all across the beer.

S: The nose is gains, spice, unripe bananas, and mild (but stinging) lemon citrus. It smells good. More like a saison than a triple.

T: It starts out dry and chalky with grains, spice, and mild bubblegum. As it moves towards the middle I get that lemon citrus bite along with clove and coriander. As it moves to the back end, I get light malt and unripe bananas. Not too much alcohol. It's just right.

M: Medium bodied beer. It's dry to start with the beer coating the palate. The flavors mingle well when the beer is there. In the finish it's sticky and cloying. The spices tend to linger long after the beer is gone.

O: This is a solid brew. It doesn't strike me as a super traditional triple, as the flavors remind me more of a saison, but this is a delicious treat on a hot summer day. I like it. I'd drink this again if I was in the mood for it.
