Bright, hazy, maize-gold coloring with a filmy, bright white surface coating of head. Nose of subtle fruit sweetness, mostly tropical, with herbal spicing and subtle toasted grain characteristics. Flavors of spice and fruit on the forward tongue, with pineapple and mango blending with highlights of all-spice, coriander, and nutmeg. Sweetness transitions, with honey and fig characteristics at the end of the palate. Fruity and smooth aftertaste, very balanced. Smooth, slightly lingering finish. Very tasty, and very easy to drink.

Poured into a snifter.

A: Hazy pale to golden yellow with one-finger, foamy, white head that lasted a minute. Pretty good lacing.

S: Banana, cloves, Belgian yeast.

T: Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Banana, bubble gum. Spice. Bready yeast.

M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Crisp. Warm going down.

O: Good Tripel. Not my favorite though.

It is a wonderfully crisp Memorial Day eve and I am enjoying this straight out of the bottle and into a glass. I remember why I love this beer in the fall, because it has many of the same characteristics as a pumpkin ale - many strong sweet notes with an easy taste to begin and a sweet, smooth finish. Enjoy this one very much and bought it on a whim!
