Golden and slightly hazy in color, this beer pours a big, frothy white head that holds very well. The aroma is citrus with hints of banana and clove. It has a medium body mouthfeel, which means it's not heavy, but it's not a light beer; it has real body. The alcohol is present but not overwhelming, almost a background note of heat. The flavor is a pleasant balance of mild maltiness and slight hops, and it finishes with just a touch of hop bitterness that's nice. This is a beer that develops more character as it warms in the glass as well. It's not as spicy as other examples of this beer, and suffers just a touch from the lack. Overall, this is nice example of the style, and folks who haven't had this style could easily enjoy and be introduced to the world of Belgian ales.

It has a really nice color. Like you melted down your wedding band and made beer out of it. It doesn't smell really good so it's best to drink it in big gulps and not breathe through your nose while doing that. It's got something is in it like cinnamon but I don't know about herbs so it could be arsenic. All in all, it was good. But then again I've never met a beer I didn't like, scratch that, didn't drink.

A: Bright golden color with medium-high carbonation visible, 1/2 inch head.
S: Yeast and some slight hops.
T: Honey and tamed hops.
M: Medium body and carbonation. Slight alcohol finish.
O: My first Tripel, and I'm glad it is local and available year-round. A heavy punch for the price, good enough to try again.
