Dark yellow hazy body with a small fluffy white head. Tropical fruit aroma with a hint of yeast smell. Sweet banana yeast taste. Reminds me of a strong tasting American wheat beer. Really good.

Poured chilled into a snifter 10/17/2014

A = Hazy yellow with an awesome 3 finger merengue-like head that stayed around for quite a while. Lots of visible carbonation. No visible sediment but very cloudy.

S = Lemony citrus, sweet dough, a little peppery spice, faint banana, a touch of peach or apricot, yeast and earthy funk

T= Sweet and doughy without being cloying, citrus, low bitterness from herbal/earthy hops, fruity esters, warming alcohol.

M = Well carbonated and medium bodied but creamy and smooth. Very easy to drink for a strong beer.

O = A delicious and well balanced classic Tripel. Truly a benchmark for the style. Highly recommended.

3.7/5  rDev -10.4%

A: Clear golden color, VERY highly carbonated with thick bubbly head (3/3)
S: Lightly fruity nose with a medium boozeyness (8/12)
T: Lightly malty flavor with solid booze aftertaste and a little bit of banana (15/20)
M: Very bubbly up front and dry finish (4/5)
O: Remarkably drinkable but the alcohol flavor is somewhat overpowering (only somewhat). Probably only a beer I’d have for special occasions. (7/10)
37/50
