This is a pretty uneven tripel that ends up being fairly easy drinking for the style.

It pours clear and yellow with little head. The aroma is a bit light, but inoffensive. The taste is pretty good, though not overly complex (not complex enough). It has a malty, yeasty component and not much else. It stays in the mouth pleasantly.

I would not seek this out again, but if I bought one by mistake it wouldn't be the end of the world. If they weren't quite so expensive they would be be an OK value, but $2.18/bottle is too much for this. There are loads of better ones.

3.94/5  rDev +1.5%

12 oz bottle, dated 7/17/14, poured into a tulip

A- A golden color with a three finger white head. 4

S- Pretty sweet, bananas, bread, hints of cloves, yeast, pretty standard for a tripel. 4

T- Sweet, bananas, hints of cloves, yeast, bread, hints of bubblegum, apples, and pears, touch of alcohol. 3.9

M- Smooth, medium body, carbonation is a little high. 3.8

O- A nice tripel, and pretty easy to drink. Like others in the Pin-UP seties it is good beer and fits the style pretty well, but not really a big stand out. Worth trying. 4
