VERY happy to say I'm having this from my own tap. Pours a clear gold with a dense white head that soon dissipates to a thin layer and some nice lacing. Smells of lemons and pears, with a bit of spice in the background. Tastes sharp at first, then mellows into nice round fruits, pear and bananas. Finishes with a crispness and reminds me of a dry cider. Mouthfeel is full and a bit chewy at the end, its color belies its character. Drinkability is excellent, I fear the keg won't last long. I think the brothers have done a great job with this one. It's a fantastic crossover beer to get someone who has had a few hefes and whose curiosity is peaked into the Belgians. Just nice all-around.

Poured from a bottle a clear yellow with a healthy white foam head. Has a sweet yeast aroma. Flavor is surprisingly on the sour side. There is a touch of honey and fruit, but the sourness dominates and makes it difficult to enjoy. Has a medium body feel, pretty smooth. This just does not have the qualities I have come to enjoy from trippels.
