12 oz bottle into short-stemmed tulip.

A: definitely hazed, but bright blonde hued brew. head isnt nearly as frothy as most belgian tripels, nor is the lacing.

S: pears, white pepper. sugar. green melon. brown-sugar quaker oatmeal. floral. lilacs and lillies. dandelions.

T: melon, citrus, cactus. banana, yogurt. linger reminds me of old bay seasoning/whatever they use for Popeyes fried chicken. crazy i know, but im just popping off whatever comes to mind! similar to the nose, pears. the body is there without being cloying or overly sweet.

M: low/average carbonation. full bodied for sure.

D: one of the most easy drinking tripel's ive consumed. great diversity of fruity flavors makes this very enjoyable. very glad they put this in 12oz bottles and definitely worth picking up.

Pours a hazy gold color with a skim head and thick edging. This gives way to finger lace. The aroma is of banana's and clove with a citrus hop aroma and a hint of yeastiness. The taste follows suit with banana and clove starting you off. Mid beer a candied yeast flavor takes hold before a floral and citrus hop bite finishes the beer off. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated. Overall it was not what I was expecting, it was a good beer, but it seemed to blur the lines of a tripel and an ipa.

12oz into a pint

A - A light golden color, and a light amount of bright white head formation. not overly carbonated.

S - Spicy notes, cinnamon and clove, very estery. Follows up with a little bit of alcohol notes.

T - Starts off smooth and sweet, light amounts of pilsner malts. Mid-stream gets alot of spiciness, corriander and cloves, with a little bit of esters. Finishes with a bright sugary note and a little bit of alcohol burn.

M - Moderate body, light carbonation. Lots of alcohol warmth. Finishes sticky and clingy.

O/D - A good tripel, but a little bit on the sweet side. Alcohol is pretty noticeable. Good tripel overall - probably a little too sweet.

This beer pours a heavy caramel color and has the aroma of burnt oak. The aroma of the burnt wood is curious, but the taste is purely burnt. The beer pours with a bit more head than I would have liked and the aftertaste detracts from the overall experience. It tastes as if it were kept in a bag of charcoal as it was being brewed. Not by any means the worst beer in the world, but my first bottle will be my only bottle.

A: slightly hazy golden color with a thin head that stays throughout. Sticky head on the edges.

S: lemon, orange, maybe coriander and bitter hops.

T: kicks you with citrus, bitterness, and some alcohol on the front, then helps you out with some malt to finish it off. A little on the sweet side, but the flavors do a decent job of balancing.

M: this is where I am let down. It's just too thick for me and not dry enough, creating a coating feeling rather than a crisp, refreshing feeling. Still heavily carbonated.

O: still a very good beer, but the drinkability is hurt by the mouthfeel. Overall, I would have this again, just maybe not a full 6 pack at $14.

Tradiotnal Trippel at first taste on the palate. However the taste will transition into a creamy, almost IPA/pale ale hybrid. I recommend this beer for those trying to forget into the diverse/unique world of Trippel's. Though most purists will not consider this a great Trippel, I feel it's a great segue into the category.

Had this on 2012-03-23 in Columbia, PA

A - Hazy gold with a short white head and a fair amount of suspended particles. Light lacing.

S - Booze, banana, clove, vanilla.

T - Banana, candied-orange, booze, straw, chalk, some hop bitterness. Finishes like a stale creamsicle.

M - Medium body and light carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

O - This brew didn't excite me. Too sweet and bland for my tastes.
