A: The beer is slightly hazy golden yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down rather quickly, but left a pillow of bubbles in the center of the glass, a collar around the edge and a thin film of bubbles in between.
S: Aromas of Belgian yeast and cloves are present in the nose along with hints of pears.
T: The taste mostly seems to follow the smell, except that there are stronger notes of fruity flavors and lesser hints of cloves, the latter of which is most noticeable in the finish. Hints of candi sugars and the associated alcohol are also perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I felt that this was a solid representation of the style and seemed to have a good balance between each of the ingredients. The alcohol became a little more prominent as the beer warmed up, but for the most part stayed in the background.

Note: Batch No. 013, Bottled on 10/2/2013

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #91 (Aug 2014):

Sweet, Fruity, Banana, Boozy

A golden, hazy, orange hued beer with a white foam head that yields aromas of yeast and citrus. Creamy on the palate with some viscosity and toasty, banana, sweet, stone fruit, burnt orange, marmalade, herbal, peppery, and pear flavors with a pithy, mild bitterness, green banana skin finish, and fruity and boozy finish. Yeast and more pepper in the long linger. Could use a slightly cleaner finish, but we’ve got a damn solid Tripel here.

STYLE: Tripel | ABV: 9.3% | AVAILABILITY: Rotating

On tap at the Big Texas Beer Fest.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of bread and white notes, with a little bit of yeast thrown in. The flavor is more of the same, with some wheat and grain coming through front and center. There is also a little bit of sweetness from the candy sugar, as well as a little bit of toasted character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

a: light amber, small foamy head that resolves to a fine effervescence with residual off white foam at the edges
s: pleasant esters, strong alcohol, malty/molasses, caramel apple and hint of pasture, wet burlap
t: sweet malty forward, over ripe apple/pear, bubble gum with good hoppy offset to the sweet malts, hint of bret like funk without it being overpowering, and fairly clean finish
m: good effervescence and mouth feel, not syrupy despite its sweet, malty
o: A rather enjoyable beer, good mix of malt, hops and complex flavors, sweeter than the typical tripel, but I rather enjoyed it, and wouldn’t hesitate to buy it on future visits to Texas. I was in Texas on business, and I always enjoy sampling local beers when I travel. This Austin beer produces quite a variety of beers, that I look forward to sampling.
