Bottle without any date, received in the Poker BIF-

Appearance- After a huge hiss when I cracked the cap, it poured a clear, orange-yellow, fairly bright, with a massive, rocky head. Left some nice lacing around the glass, and the head stuck around for quite a while

Smell- Belgian yeast and lemon up front, but a very sweet lemon, which combines with a bready note to almost smell like one of those frosted lemon cookies. It doesn't smell bad, but the two make a strange combo

Taste- Huge Belgian candy sweetness up front. The sweet lemon isn't a prevalent in the taste as it is in the nose, but the yeast esters are there. Finishes with a slightly harsh alcohol bite, which is surprising because it's only 8%.

Mouthfeel- Soft and fluffy carbonation, medium body, finishes sticky and very sweet

Overall- It's not the greatest, and to be honest, there aren't really any reasons to drink this when there are other Belgian-style or true Belgian offerings of much higher quality around on shelves everywhere

Almost two fingers of head on a cloudy, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is all barnyard. It’s not the nicest smell but it’s exactly a barnyard.
The taste is light with mild lemon bitterness, a little banana and not much else.
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation and medium body.
A fairly average ale. It’s not bad but there’s nothing to remember it by.

On-tap at the Crow Burger Kitchen, on to the beer:

There is a slight haze running through this beer. It's a godlen straw color, topped with a head which retains well and leaves spotty lace. Its nose is straight to the sugar, and accents of apricot compliment the sweetness. Fumes of alcohol escape into the aroma. Now to the taste...I'm getting a vague yeasty character. There's a golden fruit aspect to it, bringing apricot notes to the palate. Sugar coated fruit follows it. There's a slight metallic twang in the back. Somewhat boozy, especially when it comes to the mouthfeel, where it's like a "buzzy" booziness. The body is light medium, with low carbonation.

An acceptable tripel out of this San Francisco brewery. This is a style which can swing in either direction, so this result isn't a bad one.
