3.8/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.

A- Poured a pale golden orange with a fluffy white head. Thin layer of lace remaining throughout. Nice.

S- Cloves and bananas on the nose with banana being dominant towards the end. You can pick up a tinge of the higher alcohol in the aroma.

T- First the cloves, then the alcohol warmth, then banana in the aftertaste. The traditional Belgian yeast profile is dominant here. A little too spicy for me, but i'm not a freak about Tripels to begin with.

M- Even when poured down the center of the glass, this one is still very carbonated. For me, it doesn't mesh well with the sharp clove taste, but again just my taste.

O- Despite not being my favorite style, I think this is a great representation of the style and a very clean and enjoyable beer. (Even if Belgians aren't your thing!)

Cheers to Dan W, Chris W, Dan H, and all the guys down in Easton! Good stuff!

4.18/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - golden orange, light foamy head, carbonation bubbles

S - Great aroma, floral, nutty, heavy fruits including plums and bananas

T - sweet, banana, plum

M - high carbonation, crisp

O - Really taste Belgian here. Great aroma, sweet and carbonated taste. This is very drinkable and delicious. The taste/smell of bananas and plums is both unique and appealing. One of the better Belgian ales I have had.
