Poured a hazy straw color with a finger of head that fell to a light coating over the brew. The nose was big in nice sweet banana touched with a hint of lemon and light spiceyness. There is a thickness to the aroma that I have not experienced in other brews. The flavor really took me back. There was a lemony tartness that seemd out of place. Also tasted a orangey citrus and banana creamyness. It had a very clean finish. I found the citrusy character to impede the rest of the flavor character. The feel was moderate but slightly crisp, with a moderate carbonation. I'd like a sight bit more body. Overall, enjoyable. Nothing really jumps out to make this a great brew, but its definately solid.

Pours a hazy, deep yellow color with a tall, thick creamy ivory head. The head falls relatively quickly, but maintains about a quarter inch. There is a decent lacing left behind. Active carbonation visible.
Aroma is very malty, banana is there, phenolic alcohol present, some clove spiciness in the background.
Taste is malty at first, again the banana wheat is there, and then there is a peak of spice quickly overtaken with an aftertaste of strong alcohol and a hint of wheat.
Mouthfeel is full, creamy, with a slight active carbonation to tingle the back of the tongue, and the alcohol provides a warming effect.
Drinkability is high, even regarding the alcohol. Quite tasty.
I've been looking for Two Brothers to put forth a brew that was prominently above average, and I think I've found it. I'll recommend this one for as long as it lasts.

22 oz bottle pours cloudy hazy bright yellow-orange with a small off white foamy head of small bubbles that doesn't last long, not much lacing either. Fruity and spicy yeasty aromas. Fruity and spicy yeasty flavors. Full bodied with soft carbonation, full and smooth mouthfeel, alcohol is hardly noticed. A very tasty tripel, I think I will pick up another bottle.

Surely one of the best beers this brewery has put out to date.

Pours a hazed dark orange with a medium-sized head with ample lacing.

Smell is quite pleasant with a sweet phenolic and spicy nose with a nice core of malty sweetness. Hops are not prevalent, but lend balance.

Taste is the best part with a nice banana sweetness hitting first leading to some spicy hops and leaving with more sweetness. Very enjoyable.

Mouthfeel is creamy, but has a hollowness to it that makes it less than perfect.

Very drinkable beer! I hope to see more efforts like this one!
