A- straw to gold couldy look with about a 3 inch white foam that fades slow with a good lace.
S-orange, bananna with a little spice
T-the citrus flavor hit me at the start, then a sweet bananna came in followed by an alcohol taste. Spicy like is also there.
M- creamy and very carbonated
O- this was a great beer looking forward to the next one

Well balanced, especially for 8% alcohol. Any alcoholic nose is absent with only a slight aftertaste of alcohol. medium bodied with a touch of spice. Nice mouthfeel and head retention. Balance is the keyword for this beer. No noticeable flaws or otherwise outstanding positive characteristics. Very drinkable.

750mL bottle into a chalice
no bottled on date

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with 1 plus fingers width of bright white colored head. Head has very good retention, with a thick film remaining throughout the entirety of the drink. Leaves only a few small patches of lacing.

S: Citrus, light fruits, a bit tart, subtle banana and a hint of spice. Doesnt have the spiciness or esters of many in the style. Instead its heavier on the citrus and has the interesting tartness.

T: Spice, easters, and yeast all more prevalent on the tongue that in the aroma. I also get the citrus that was on the nose, and a bitterness. There is a big sweetness as well. Good complexity and very well balanced.

M/D: Medium body, heavy carbonation, ABV well masked, very good drinkability.

O: Good, but not great in my opinion. Certainly worthy of a try, but there are several Tripels I enjoy more than this one.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Looks like a Belgian Tripel. Smells like a Belgian Tripel. It reminds me a lot of Duvel, but a little sweeter on the front. A little bit more alcohol taste as well.

One thing to note about the beer is that it is very bubbly. It had a huge head after the pour and never stopped bubbling the entire time I was drinking.

This beer is good and I would get it again. I was expecting it to be a little bit better after trying the quad of the same brand. That beer is definitely superior.
