Poured into a pint glass from a bottle dated to be consumed before October 28th, 2016.
App: Light orange in the middle expanding out to the sides into a hay-like yellow. Hazy. Pours a nice 3 finger head, tight and fluffy, and pale white.
Smell: Good funkiness. Spicy citrusness of lemon and pepper. Grassy and herbal. More like in the way you might dump the bag of grass after mowing, the smell after a couple days waiting for pick up on the street. Esters shine through with a strong banana smell. Pineapple in there too. Various other fruits.
Taste: Pineapple and banana with a lemon-pepper spice evolving quickly to a bitter funk at the end. Almost seems like a big saision. Pale malts give a good base, with a refreshing hopiness, Belgian yeast shining through brilliantly to deliver a fruity funkiness.
Overall just a great Tripel. Stands with the best of them but does quite enough to stand out from the rest of them. From there, it's just a matter of taste.
