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!

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden orange. One finger foamy white head that dissipated a little too quickly into a thin layer of creamy bubbles. Lots of tiny bubbles inside. Good amount of lacing. Looks

Aroma: Banana and some other tropical fruits, Belgian candi sugar, yeast, cloves...usual suspects. Faint alcohol.

Taste: Spicy, peppery. Some of the tropical fruits from the nose but more subdued. Alcohol is definitely there. Yeasty on the back palate. Dry. Not nearly as sweet as the nose would lead you to believe but not bitter. Spiciness dominates, combining with the drying alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, pretty light-bodied. Very carbonated. Drying. Again, not bad but not great.

Overall: Nice. Not my favorite but among the best readily available tripels. Very approachable and a great introduction to the style
