Alabama

4.03/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a pale gold color that is slightly cloudy with a nice frothy head that recedes quite quickly, although it does leave some nice lacing around the glass.

S:Sweet smells of bubblegum, bananas, spices and malts.

T: Stars out a tad bit hoppy (nice surprise), then gets very sweet, very spicy tasting tripel. Nice tasting beer.

MF: Spot on in this department, very balanced in both carbonation and feel.

D: A bit more tame than a lot of tripels I've had, but that makes it pretty easy going down, only some points off (and it's really not that bad) is the high ABV prevents you from drinking too many :)

Cheers!

3.88/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 1 pt 9. 4 fl oz bottle into a goblet.

A - Cloudy orange with pale yellow highlights. Half finger head that dissipates fairly quickly.

S - Yeasty cloves and mild banana. Green grapes.

T - Bread, yeast, banana, and grape notes. Strangely not as much as alcohol presence. Mild tartness at the finish.

M - Mildly sharp but still a touch creamy. Solid.

O - An interesting brew. Tripels have a way of sneaking up on you due the propensity to swill it down swiftly. This is worth trying, even if it seems to be missing something to put it over the top.
