Pours beautifully with an everlasting head. Perfect representation of the style
Citrus Fruits, a bit of clove, a little what, does not justify the taste
Citrus, cloves, maybe a bit of vanilla. Highly drinkable, hides the alcohol way too well. Dryness at the end is refreshing and leaves you coming back for more.
Dryness at the end is crisp and refreshing. It is really hard to believe that this beer is a 9. This is way too drinkable.
One of the better beers I have tried and one that would definitely be my staple if it wasn't 6 bucks a bottle. Balance is key and this beer nails it on the dime. 4.5

!2oz bottle poured into a snifter...
A: Pours a translucent orange/dark gold with one full finger of pure white head. The foam is frothy of tiny bubbles and it settles quickly along the edges of the glass. There is some lacing as it drinks, but nothing crazy.
S: The nose is sweet of malt and cracked wheat. I also get a good amount of banana esters.I don't get much clove spice, whih I would expect from a tripel.
T: This beer starts out with malty sweetness and banana notes. I also get some other fruity flavors like prunes and dates. There is a spiciness that presents itself after it hits the palate, but it seems more because of the carbonation than than the clove notes from the yeast. As it transitions to the middle of the beer, the prunes and bananas shine. The beer begins to tighten up in the back end with some yeast.
M: Medium bodied beer. Sweet, sticky, and syrupy to start. It coats the palate right off the bat. The carbonation catches the tongue and makes it prickly for a moment. Sticky all the way through the end of the beer, and the flavors linger on the palate for quite a bit after the beer is gone.
O: This is a good beer, and a good tripel. I prefer my triples with more spice and a little lighter mouthfeel, but this is good. I'd drink this beer again, but I don't think I'd be buying it regularly.
