Love, love this beer. The taste is phenomenal. The aroma makes my nose smile (if it could). The only reason it doesn't get perfect 5's is the high ABV. I want to be able to drink more of this beer in one sitting but 1 bottle does it for me. I'm so glad it is available year round at any decent bottle shop.

Enjoyed immensely from bottles twice in tulip glasses; each over more than 30 compelling minutes.
(Also tasted on tap shortly afterwards, with comparison notes interspersed below).

The color is a hazy peach-gold. A bubbly head falls fast in a tulip glass (even when poured on draught), but holds on milky to the edge, fed by lines of carbonation, such that lacing participates in slipping patches with every gulp.
It smells of sweet cherry candy, salt sea air, banana, some pine, steel, and a touch of citrus. Malt stands nicely at the center (but somehow folds in the draught version). A little grass and coriander pops up with warming. The palette of scents is eclectic, but pointillistically well-blended with a wash of honey-wheat.
Each gulp has a sweet start that's turned on the bubbles to a note of early spice. Then come bright citrus acids followed by apricot booze. All along, there's banana toffee, but it's balanced wonderfully by tartness, salinity (which is unfortunately not present on draught), pepper, and a clean grassy hop note.
The mouthfeel is splendid--slick going in, then buzzy with bubbles that blossom into a richness that stays but doesn't stain. The backsides of the tongue still hold its soft oil while the belly is feeling the heat of ethanol.
I've found a Tripel in North America that isn't merely a clumsy tropical cordial aged for funk--this is a true craft that I'd drink way too much if I could. Good news is that it seems to be better (stronger spice-stone fruit flavor, cleansing salinity, and right-tuned malt) with some conditioning time in the bottle, so perhaps it will travel well to me in the future...
