Opened Bottle # 117 of 1518. Served in a room temp pint glass. Congrats on the first bottling guys.

A- A slow pour generates little to know head in this hazy gold beauty. Not much in the way of retention or lacing out of the bottle. On tap the day of the release, it was a a different story. Nice foamy heady that held well. Bottle score 3.5 , tap 4.5 , so I give it a 4.

S- Lots of sweet smooth aromas. I pick up lots of ripe bananas, sweet candi sugar, raisin, caramel malts and sweet booze. Lafey Tafey and brown sugar!! I like, although triple is not my favorite of the ale aromas, this one is well balanced.

T- Banana nut bread, raisins, caramel malts, slight amount of toffee and a crisp hop finish that is short lived but present. Again Lafey Tafey.

M- Smooth and crisp. For an ABV of %9.2 it drinks incredibly easy. The carbonation is spot on, most triples I feel are to active but this one is just right.

O- My hats off to NODA for this one. I feel its a great representation of the diversity and talent that this up coming brewery possesses. I cant wait for them to bottle more great bears... who knows maybe next time it will be darker ;). Awesome beer will enjoy the other three over the next few years. One of my favorite triples by far.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, copper-gold coloring with a thin, wispy, surface coat of white head. Aromas of lemon, fig, ginger, clove, apricot, toasted grain, and orange zest. Fruity, light, effervescent nose. Flavors are tangy fruit forward, with a more rich character of old world fruit, including date and fig, followed by hints of rich caramel, honey, and a subtle spice character. Bubble gum, toffee, and citrus fruit notes become more present as you drink, as well. Very layered and dynamic. The spicing, once light and accenting, begins to build a bit more as you drink, as does a subtle warmth from the ABV. Light, crisp, effervescent body that remains refreshing throughout. The aftertaste is more of the tangy sweet, leading into a crisp, slightly dry, slightly lingering finish. Solid beer.

Thanks to kubrick215 for sharing. 750ml, bottle #1288/1518.

Hazy and very dark golden orange colored with golden banana yellow edges and a 1.5 finger frothy, white head that quickly settle into a thick,  lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lace are left behind.

Slightly funky aroma with strong yeast presence. Lots of bread, banana and bubblegum along with zesty spice, pale malt and earthy hops.  Hints of clove, coriander and pepper as well as some banana bread and citrus peel.

Medium bodied and complex with zesty spice, bready yeast and ester-y fruit notes.  Reminiscent of a wheat beer with bread, citrus rind and peppery spice.  I'm picking up some clove, ginger, coriander and pepper followed by wheat, bread/yeast and citrus peel.  A touch of banana followed by some bubblegum, orange peel and grapefruit.  Not too sweet, however, with masked ABV and decent balance.  Some earthy hops toward the finish which is slightly tart.

A - translucent orange, slightly cloudy, pours with a thin head and dissipates to a lace.

S - doughy, banana, mild clove

T - candied sugar, bread, Belgian yeast

M - suprisingly smooth, slightly low on the carbonation. Stickier as it warms.

O - pretty solid tripel, strong offering from a local.

Bottle. Pours a very clear light amber color with a smallish white head on it. Nose is quite yeasty and slightly sweet, reminiscent of a lot of the Belgian styles of beer. Taste is slightly sweet, but has a bit of a bite to it that is a little unexpected. Not a bad brew, but not great.
