3.7/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The price has come down on this at the local beer store, but they could have been gouging the first time. Anyway, I paid maybe $3 after tax for a single.

A: Opaque amber hue, with a brief two finger head after forcing a pour. Retention is pretty short, with just a little lacing.

S: Banana esters and clove hit up front, with maybe a hint of tangerine, apple, and some cereal notes.

T: Mostly sweet, but the hoppiness isn't quite as muted as I'd like on a tripel. It's not bad, but it's one of the only things that separates this from the true glory of real Belgian tripels. Again, the banana and clove flavors dominate at first, but they do definitely open up to reveal that delicious pale malt and sweeter fruity esters (tangerine, apple, etc.). Alcohol barely comes through in the finish.

M: Medium/low carbonation, and as the temperature rises, so does both the sweetness and the fuming. I probably started this just a little on the cool side, but the swirling brought it up to ideal temp.

D: Not a bad attempt from FD, and really probably one of the most enjoyable brews I've had by them. Love the Pale Ale and DPA, Gonzo Imperial Porter and I like their barleywine, and this definitely sits on the same level. It's a good stab at a tripel and if one wanted to start into that style without fear of getting their taste buds spoiled early, this is a good place to begin.

Review from 4/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a nice cloudy orange color, small off-white dissipating head. Light and dark fruit and Belgian spice aroma. Belgian spice, fruit and light malt up front. Lightly spicy tripel finish. A decent American tripel. Medium bodied. I enjoyed drinking this. I'm Flying Dog isn't distributed in Washington any more.
