A - Bright yellow, with no head or lace. A fair amount of clarity. Nothing special in the appearance

S - Trippel for sure. Belgian yeast is very strong. Bananas, pepper, spices.

T - Sweet, belgian yeast. Spicy. Very much like the aroma.

M - High carbonation.

O - A good trippel, but not over the top. I will drink it all day, don't get me wrong. But Avery sets the bar high with all of their other concoctions!

Served in a Walter Payton shaker pint glass.

Yup, Avery's definitely legal... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear straw-gold topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises light biscuit, black pepper, clove, a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg, light banana peel, and confectioner's sugar-laden lemon. The taste brings in more of the same, with the spices still taking center stage, along with a vein of sweet flowers coming through the sides on occasion. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a pretty nice spice-forward tripel, one that shows its American colors fairly strongly.

A-a mostly clear golden with two fingers worth of white fluffy head

S-pale bready malt, sweet candied fruits, and spices

T-pale malt backbone with sweet fruit, spices, and a bit of bitterness

M-medium body, somewhat light carbonation

Overall this is a decent Tripel, not outstanding but has some good qualities to it

How served: 22oz bomber with a silver foil wrapped cap was poured into a Westmalle Chalice.

Notes: This is Avery’s 19 anniversary beer which was bottled in the spring of 2012.

A: The beer poured an opaque golden color with a 2 finger white fluffy head which left a thin sticky lacing on the glass.

N: The nose was full of cloves and pepper with mild hints of citrus and pears and at the very beginning I got a faint note of banana.

T: The taste followed the nose with cloves and spicy pepper mixed with coriander, pears and hints of green apple. There were also mild hints of candi sugar however this brew was not sweet and finished fairly dry.

M: This beer had a medium body with a low to medium level of carbonation and left a nice warming sensation on the palate.

O: Overall this was a very good brew and a very good representation of a true Belgium made Tripel, however it was not quite in the same class of some of the classic Tripels like the one from Westmalle.
