Enjoyed in the company of Mike and Tim at the brewery.

Slightly hazy golden, forming a small white head with excellent retention and sparse lacing. Aroma is hardly there...my first beer of the afternoon and no smoke in the bar and I basically can't smell anything here. Not that it's bad, but just not there. Carbonation is moderate. Mouthfeel is clean with a very light body, very different from expected for the style. Taste is decent enough, but hardly a tripple....little bit of light yellow bananas, plantains and cloves, cereal grain, with an inappropriate degree of floral hop flavor and bitterness. Very dry finish. Closer to a Abbey Golden than a tripple for sure...
Missed the mark on this one. It's actually a decent beer but way off style.
