Draft tonight at Bittercreek.. Surprisingly I've had this one other time in PDX.. Spiciness is all about the ginger and I guess some coriander that adds depth to the yeasty notes and then accentuated some lemon aspect.. Weird and seems very overspiced and does not allow the yeast to sing at all... I didn't care for it last time and maintain that idea.

Review is from notes

Look: Pours a nice golden color with a fluffy white head that leaves good lacing

Smell: Yeast spice, clove, banana, a little lemon, and some fruit

Taste: Pear, coriander, pepper, clove, a little banana, dry finish. Some nice hops in there as well

Feel: Light to medium body, full carbonation

Overall: Pretty good, I'm sad to see this was only a one off and I won't see it again.

Good strong beer. Deceptively strong. Sweet for a tripel. Slightly fruity smell. Easy to drink. Enjoyable after taste. Tried at Randolph's beer
