3.78/5  rDev -2.8%

22oz bottle at 41 F poured into a pair of snifters. No bottle code. Drank and took notes a day or two ago, entering the review now.

Pours clear, golden, with fine slow carbonation and almost no head. Smell is bananas and cloves, yeasty and bready.

Taste is extremely sweet, syrupy, lots of bananas. Not as much clove in the flavor as in the aroma, but some spice. Slight lemon or lemon rind bitterness.

Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Overall, it's a pretty good beer.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and great lacing. Classic tripel aroma of bready malt, Belgian yeast, coriander and clove, lightly estery. Flavor follows, with rich malt, clove and Belgian spicing, nice fruit esters. Medium bodied with a moderately thick mouth feel. A well made domestic version of the tripel style, hitting all the traditional flavor notes. Perhaps a bit strong on the spicing, but not outside the range of Belgian tripels. A typically nicely brewed ale from Silver City.

Clear golden brew with a nice pile of foam in the tall Blanche de Chambly glass. The suds froth up nicely with each sip. Deep aroma of fruity stuff with that funky note.

This strikes a nice balance between the sharp fruit and that mellow malty sweetness. Quite a dry finish, maybe more agressively yeasty than a Tripel needs. But it's a delicious beer for sipping, with that hot pineapple and banana taste that starts every mouthful.

From the 22 oz bottle purchased at 99 Bottles in Federal Way for a modest seven bucks.
