3.84/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Golden and clear with about a ½ inch of head. A fair amount of lacing present.

Strong fruit aroma in the form of bananas with apples and pears in the background. Cloves, sugar, earth also on the nose.

Flavor is spicy and a tinge citrusy. Some bitterness and earthy notes as well.

Mouthful is medium and smooth. Carbonation is on the lighter end of medium. Finish is mildly fruit and sweet.

This triple has traditional characteristics and is a good beer but I think there are better examples of the (American) style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Sweeneys Ale House in Encino, CA.

Pours a murky golden-orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, earth, spice, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with earth, spice, yeast, and slight dried fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice and yeast bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is a basic but solid American take on the style.

Serving type: on tap.

On tap at the Bear Republic brewpub.

Clear golden amber; Excellent clarity; Fine white head leaves patented sticky lacing.

Lots of banana and clove in the aroma, but thse are less pronounced in the better and more complex flavor. Biscuit malt base

Feel: Soft medium+ carbonation; Medium-light body.

O good enough to pass for an actual Belgian.
