Draft notes from Collegeville. Hazy gold pour with off-white head. Notes of malt, yeasty funk, hopcitrus, and spices in the nose. Not terribly complex in the flavor, like a yeasty pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Harrisburg location. Hazy, rich gold with healthy white head. Smells of moderate banana and spiciness. Flavor is predominantly phenolic, with banana and slight lemon underneath. Bitterness blends with higher alcohols and phenolics to make one distinct flavor. Yummy, but I would agree with the assessment that it is on the harsh end. I’d like to see more fruitiness from the yeast in here and less of that phenolic flavor. It reminds me of modeling glue.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the Camp Hill location. Pours orange-gold with small tight white head. The aroma is yeasty with some lemon, pepper, banana, and cookie notes. The flavor is bready with some raw grain notes, a slightly harsh spiciness, plenty of yeast, and a very dry finish. Pretty good, but it lacks the subtlety of a truly well made tripel.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a tiny white head. Again, very sweet aroma, yeasty, reminiscent of La Fin du Monde. Average tripel body (fyi not a fan of the style, give me a dubbel any day), a light Belgian with an alcoholic kick. Meh.

i thought this was really good. nice thick syrupy body. BIt of a sweet candi aroma, has kinda a honey sweet taste a little bit of candi and maybe an element of spice to it. Very nice brew.
