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.

Bottle states Batch 163. No date that I could find.

A: A cloudy pale golden orange pour with a huge fizzy white head atop it. Excellent head retention, fades oh so slowly, leaving an island of foam behind forever. Nice fluffy tufts of lacing everywhere.

S: Great crisp refreshing aroma. Pears, apples, banana, lemons and a touch of tropical fruit - primarily tangerine and mango I'd say. Some belgian yeast spiciness is apparent.

T: Super fruity, just like the aroma. Pretty much matches up with what I've described above, though I will say the banana is quite a bit stronger. Cloves and black pepper in the middle with some yeasty sourdough bread. Finishes with a bunch of banana and lemon and some more black pepper. Almost get a hint of sweet melon in there too.

M: Medium bodied with fairly high carbonation.

O: Awesome tripel. Perhaps the best I've ever had. It is crisp, refreshing, fruity, aromatic and dangerously drinkable. Love the nice touch of tangerine in there, it really compliments the traditional tripel flavors quite well. An excellently crafted beer.
