On tap at brewery:
Pours a yellow stained glass with a modest white cap. A medium thick collar marks the glass with lacing in a few spots, with a scrubbing bubble like streaming swath on each sip.

Nose is malty hearty cracker with some honey sweetness and a light pear/banana fruitiness. It’s not very strong, but nicely put together for the style.

Flavor brings more strength to the familiar components: honey sweetness, ripe Bosc pear, a cracker/hay/light white pepper background, and a bit of yeasty banana lingering. Clean, light for the ABV, with a barrage of pin-pricks from the carbonation.

The beer might be a tad sweet, but the style allows for it. Fun to sip, I could have a couple of these broken up with something a little more bitter and be happy.

Pours a bright golden yellow and looks almost flat after pour. Definitely a malt bomb.

Smells of fresh barley and sweet prairie malts. Smells like Belgium.

The flavor is a little lacking, mainly sweet caramel and a slight flavor of sweet corn. Tastes like the Midwest.

Mouthfeel is very smooth, but similar to taste, rather lacking.

Overall, a nice example of the Tripel style, but nothing to waste too much time looking for.
