Regal gold body. Pure white cap that leaves some nice lace. Almost immediately, I notice great big wafts of fruity, yeasty, estery goodness coming at my nose. Great aroma. The flavor follows suit to a degree. Nice cakey yeastiness. Great fruitiness. Bready malts to back it up. Solid flavor. Meidum-to medium-full body. Nicely carbonated. Easy drinker. Bold aroma and flavor and quite easy to drink for the relatviely high a/v.

This is my 5th brew now from Junkyard and they do not disappoint. At all. I am very impressed with my intial sampling of them.

A-Deep gold colored. Slight haze

S-Very nice. Sweetish with banana, vanilla and some dark fruity notes of plums and dates.

T-Overripe banana, vanilla pudding. A nice sweeter flavor but not cloying at all. Some light cloves in the background.

M-Medium to full bodied. Carbonation is perfect. I hate when these get overcarbonated and airy and this is firm but not airy or over charged.

O-Really a well done tripel. Some might like some more prominent spicy characteristics but I prefer this style along these lines. Another quality offering from this impressive under the radar brewery.
