COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden hued ale is marked by passion fruit and herbal notes in the aroma, with subtle suggestions of banana and honey surfacing from its deep and complex palate. The Tripel's finish is remarkably long and soothing.

There is a heavy yeasty smell with other spices that are prominent. It is a pale yellow with a full bodied head. It has an extremely yeasty, spicy, alcohol taste to it that just doesn’t work for me.

drpimento (2311) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Appearance is excellent with a huge foamy, frothy, thick, off-white head, that settles very slowly, some lace and a clear yellow color. Aroma is mainly yeast with some grain and a hint of fruit. Flavor’s like nose, slightly bittersweet, some tang, honey, rye bread. Body is a tad soft. Beer is very drinkable with a little alcohol warmth.

VastActiv (3312) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2015
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 :)

ElCapitan22 (179) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2015
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.

bg80 (29) - California, USA - FEB 10, 2015
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.

Handypaul (279) - - FEB 1, 2015
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.

WillRunForBeer (1001) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 29, 2015
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.

GriffDaddy (78) - - JAN 15, 2015
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.

atlrizzob (185) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2015
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.
