A - Brassy golden hue, translucent, with a generous white frothy head and good retention and lace. On-point for the style.

S - Way delicious! Belgian, buttery, biscuity, and lemon-zesty with a crisp alcohol twang. A slightly different take on the Tripel, but an exceptionally delicious one nonetheless.

T - The taste follows the nose. I get a delicious richness and nearly perfect balance and harmony of the flavors. The malted grain is bready, a bit husky and with just enough sweetness, it is still refreshingly dry. The hop is lightly fragrant and herbal and adds a sublime balance of bitterness. And the yeast imparts delicate notes of lemon, apple and pear. Just an outstanding and refreshing Tripel.

M - Fantastic. Well-carbonated, but with a creamy-soft mouthfeel that is totally complementary.

D - Drinking it at the BA Brandy Hunahpu event, shockingly this ends up as one of my top 5 favorite brews of the substantial day. Surprisingly good.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Golden, semi-translucent. Nice head on pour that reduces to a fine film.

Smell: Fresh lemon, tangerine, and caramel malt. It's soft and a little hard to pick up, but complex and wonderful.

Taste: Instant onslaught of flavor! Very upfront sweetness that's overwhelmingly banana! Like crazy amounts of sweet, ripe, banana.

Mouthfeel: Perfectly balanced thick-ish body against a front of the tongue spritzy carbonation.

Drink: Ends sweetly, leaving you wanting more - but possibly too sweet which can also be a little turn off.
