Draft at iTap-Soulard, served in a chalice. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits, dried apricots, candi sugar, floral hops, cookies, and sweet bread. Flavor of floral hops, candi sugar, bready and caramel malts, mixed fruits, and yellow cake. A little straw and earthiness could fool me into thinking this was a big saison.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle from Binny’s Lincoln Park. Pours a cloudy, bright golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is big doughy Belgian yeast, pale malts, a light herbal hopping, some banana esters, and a light clove phenol. A light pear and orange fruitiness. Flavor is similar. Big doughy Belgian yeast up front with a bready pale malt backing. Some lemon and orange citruses with a nice pear as well as a light clove spice and banana ester in the middle. Herbal hopping gives this a medium-light bitterness and helps it dry pretty nicely. Finishes with lots of doughy yeast, clove, and a bit of a zesty lemon citrus. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a medium-light carbonation with just a slight alcohol warmth. Overall, a decent tripel. Lots of doughy yeast, a pleasant dry herbal hopping, some clove and banana, and a light fruity zestiness. Nice beer.
