Tap at Blind Tiger, New York. Colour is cloudy light orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, orange, spices, Belgian yeast, some sweetness and malts. Too sweet tripel but overall enjoyable.

I absolutely love this ale. It has a nice golden color with hints of various fruits and full bodied - It’s very complex in flavor and has a wonderful after taste :)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with no lacing or head retention. Smells of banana and yeast. Tastes like Belgian yeast and bananas also. Not a bad beer at all and certainly does not taste like a triple.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft. Pale light straw colored, not too hazy, with thick white head leaving some lacing up top. Modest carbonation. Aroma is peppery, yeasty, very Belgian. Its a strong beer with an alcohol presence, bananas, peppers, bread, some candy sugar. A little simple compared to the greats, but tasty and not overdone.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes, on tap at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a briefly lasting white head that leaves some lacing. Weak aroma of tropical fruit. Weak flavor of banana with a stronger presentation of honey sweetness. Creamy texture, lively carbo, medium body and a long bitter finish.

Flight at tasting room. So much better with aging. Good and interesting but overall impression is too sweet. Yeasty and belgian-y. Slick mouthfeel. Complex. Smooth and long finish.

Free! Taster at the source. Pours orange gold with a clingy white head. Aroma is banana, pepper, clove. Flavor follows, nice balance. Starts with sweet banana, honey, wheat. Pepper and clove dry out the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden straw pour, silky tall head. Aroma of stone fruit and biscuits. Sharp carbonation with a berry like bubble gum taste. More bitter than expected, shorter finish than advertised. Bitterness was a bit harsh, sweetened as it warmed. I found this underwhelming.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy golden hue. Frothy white top. Nice balanced Belgian style flavor with citrus, banana, yeast, and some bitterness. A very nice American reproduction of a traditional Belgian style tripel.
