Notes/Commercial Description:
This strong golden ale is marked by passion fruit and herbal notes in the aroma, with suggestions of banana and honey in the complex palate. The Tripel has a remarkably long and smooth finish.

Pours a white head. Decent retention. Color is a bright hazed golden orange.

Aroma: A nice amount of spices and fruit. Some orange peel and cloves with a bit of peach. A lot of yeast flavors. Very dry. Belgian flavored.

Taste: Bananas and orange peel with a hint of lemon citrus. Cloves and a dry pepper flavor. Again, yeasty with a Belgian flavor to it. A lot of bready malts.

Mouthfeel: Dry and spiced. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Ends dry.

Overall, a solid tripel. Fits the style well, especially for an American brewery. Good stuff.

A: A lot lighter in color than I was expecting. Golden yellow with almost no head, and the little head there is has no retention and leaves almost no lacing. The yeast in the bottle was VERY loose.

S: Really big hit on tropical fruits, along with a biscuity yeast smell and alcohol. Underlying it all is a small hint of spice.

T: Nice big flavor, with a yeast, candied plums and raisins flavor up front which gives way to yeast and finishes with warming alcohol and honey sweetness, though it is nicely balanced at the end with hops.

M: Heavier than one would expect from looking at it in the glass. Medium bodied, with very little carbonation, coats the mouth with stickiness.

O: A solid beer. Not all that representative of the tripels that I've had, but not a huge departure either. I would definitely drink this beer again and it is absolutely worth checking out.

As an aside, the blurb on the label is super pretentious sounding. I don't need to be told that this beer is "Perfect as an aperitif" nor that it has a "complex palate." Let the damn beer speak for itself...
