3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is cloves, banana and some fruity esters. Flavor is the same, lots of clove and banana with some spicy fruit and sugar. What ever yeast they used really did its thing. A little low carbonation compared to some Belgian triples but this is quite tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 22 oz. bottle at Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a hazy yellow with large and active white head. Lots of carbonation in this brew. The nose is all bubblegum. The flavor is a mix of bubblegum, candy sugar sweetness, and banana. Light to medium body with high carbonation and a lingering finish. Tastes like a dumbed down tripel. It definitely doesn’t hold a candle to the more complex Belgian versions.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty nice beer. Bit sticky, seems more than 8%, nice Belgian character, almost saison-like, thick feeling though. Nice doughy fruit flavor that seems quite traditional.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a light golden, slight haze with a small white head. Aroma is belgian yeast, spicy and citric, slight doughiness, a bit peppery. Flavor starts with a lot of the banana esters, a touch candyish which then gives way to the spicy and slight pepper note, finishing fruity and a bit citric, just a touch boozy. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Pretty nice

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass. Pours pale citrus yellow orange with a quick little soapy white head that leaves a thin spotty film. Aroma is spice banana and clove with subtle hops, pepper some cracker and yeast. Taste has some subtle bitterness from the hops and a little farmhouse flavors with peppery crackers with the spice and yeast really showing through and plenty of banana and malt. Palate is slick and chalky with a drying finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle- Pours a hazy pale lemonade color with a good head that fades to lacing. Aroma of citrus and fruit, mostly banana. Mild malt sweetness and some spice. Taste of citrus and fruit, again mostly banana, sweet malt and bread. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. Light body, smooth and well balanced. The 8.23% ABV is very well hidden. Nice Abbey Tripel. Not an in your face, overpowering offering of the style.

Pours a pale yellow with some sediment. As it sits, the sediment slowly sits on the bottom. Heavy nose of flowers, and yeast, with some lemon grass and earth tones. Super easy to drink and not overwhelming on yeast like most in this style. Pretty good! Glad I got a few bottles!

22oz. bottle served in a tulip. Poured a pale gold with a couple of fingers of tight bubbled white head. Clove and Belgian spice in the aroma. Light bodied and dry. A little citrus. More spice in the finish. Nice American version of a tripel. Most seem to be sweet and flabby. Good stuff.
