Pours a relatively clear gold color with a brown tint, almost amber but not quite, with a thin layer of head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is mostly composed of yeast, malt, some bready characteristics, and a faint hint of spices such as clove on the back end. Taste is a surprisingly huge burst of banana and clove right off the bat, with the alcohol being extremely well hidden. Combines with all the bready yeasty goodness for a near-perfect finish. Overall, it may not be the best looking or smelling Tripel, but when it comes to taste, which is what really matters, it's one of my favorites.

Bottle to "hard rock" glass.

LOOK: darker yellow, orange hue. Small white head. Suds stick around, clinging to glass.
AROMA: apricot, pineapple, bread, yeast. Very sweet and fruity.
TASTE: apricot, lemon, peach, light yeast, late warming alcohol burn.
FEEL: full bodied and a little sticky. Light carbonation.

My kind of belgian. Strong, fruitty, bready, with minimal Wang.

A-color is a clear golden yellow with a fingers worth of white head that leaves a light layer of lace

S-pale malt, light fruits and spices, some citrus and yeast

T-taste is similar to the smell with a pale malt backbone, citrus fruits, apples, spices, yeast, and a slightly bitter finish

M-medium body, crisp carbonation

Overall an above average American Tripel, maybe a tad too sweet but has enough bitterness to keep it from being cloying

Look (4.25): This "American Trippel" is a beautiful golden tangerine hue. A white foamy head that has very fine carbonation. Carbonation seems to disipate quickly. (It's bottle conditioned!)

Smell (4): Citrus and tropical fruits. More specifically, banana and lemon with vanilla floral notes. Honey and booze with some sweet caramel malt in the background.

Taste (4): Big fruit bananas and tropical citrus hit your palate upfront. Nice malty roundness to help carry you to a slightly bitter ending. Definitely some heavy booze, less spice then I expect.

Mouthfeel (4.5): Creamy and smooth. Medium plus bodied. Light acid flavors, but more then usual for a Trippel which I welcome. More on the dry side.

Overall (4.25): Plus a million points for being what I consider my hometown brew! The Exit 4 label is basically a map of how to get to my house!

DATE TASTED: March 24, 2016... GLASSWARE: Affligem chalice.. OCCASION: ... APPEARANCE: pours a crackling golden orange with sparse effervescence... mostly clear... the head rings out to an almost cloudless... zero lacing in the glass... AROMA: a beautifully aromatic, spring flower dominates with grapefruit and orange... the banana, clove and spice suggests raw yeastiness... TASTE: a sweet, hoppy strength ripples through the profile, with astringent yeastiness, banana and clove... a sharp Saaz suggests a pilsner, while the the malt is a bit of cracker and bread... a balanced tripel, which is not the usual... OVERALL: a powerfully alcoholic, clean, crisp ale that rewards in its richness and displays the capabilities of Flying Fish... balance is the key to this abbey, with notes of honey and orange peel late...
