Sweet taste, like a banana split. Like Blue Moon on Steriods. Love this Beer! I like my beers less hopped. This stuff is almost like mead. It's a Belgian Style Tripel, but it doesn't say what the base is. I presume it's wheat based. Just went to their website says Pilsen, White Wheat and Caramel 15. This is the best beer I have tried in a while.

Pours a light amber color with a spumeous head that is rock solid and leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass.

Aromas are extremely phenolic and yeast forward highlighted by bananas, cloves, a touch of lemon and a solvent alcohol element.

The taste follow the nose with banana and clove flavors that are joined, mid palate, by a prickly harshness; the finish is quite alcoholic, but contains some tropical fruit elements in addition to the solvents.

The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Finish is estery with lots of warming alcohol.

Overall this is just a subpar example of a Belgian style ale. Too boozy and phenolic and just a pass for me going forward.
