A very pale/light-colored Belgian Abbey ale finishing lightly sweet with medium body and nice malt/hop balance, mainly characterized by a complex yet mild spicy character with yeast-generated fruity banana, pineapple and tropical fruit esters being present.

Poured into a Firestone Walker snifter. pours a medium orange amber with a fine two finger white head with great retention and pillowy lacing. Aroma of mildly bready malt, orange citrus, light stone fruit, Belgian yeast, coriander and clove. Flavor is sweet-tart orange citrus and apricot, banana, clove and coriander, developing an interesting light biscuity flavor in the finish, which is spicy and slightly boozy. Medium bodied with light creaminess. A nicely done domestic tripel, with an interesting fruit and malt base and Belgian yeast and spicing. I liked this quite a bit. (581 characters)

A - Poured a slightly cloudy, golden yellow color with a one-finger, white, head of bubbly foam. It left some sticky sheets of lace on the glass.

S - It had a strong yeast aroma. Nice grain aroma with pineapple and banana notes.

T - A great blend of sweet and spicy. Spicy and yeasty at first sip with caramel sweetness. Some tartness comes in pineapple flavors. Some banana flavors were present, too.

M - It was crisp, sharp and fairly smooth. A medium bodied ale with a warming alcohol presence and a dry finish.

O - This is a pretty good tripel. Destihl has some nice brews. (589 characters)
