12 ounce bottle, dated 8/18/10 bottled on, poured into an Ommegang flute chalice.
Golden yellow, some yeast/hop debris sediment comes out in the pour, cream white head, some density breaks after several minutes some slight signs of lacing.
Aroma shows banana, green tea and sharp floral alcohol. Some clove and peppery phenol. Some fusel hot alcohol rises as the beer warms.
The flavor profile has some hint of banana and clove with a strong alcohol character with some rose/floral tones. Sweet sugary, liquid sugar syrupy before a wash of dry, chalky and slightly bitter and astringent across the tongue and sides of the mouth.
The body presents a little fuller than I'd anticipate upfront, almost oily and slick before a dry alcohol accentuated finish.
The beer has some minor flaws, not harsh and unforgivable, but not what I would seek in a Tripel.
