Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dirty gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma seems to have pineapple ester. Med body. Flavor is pineapple. Might be a banana undernote. Or not. Surprising. Yeast/spice gives pineapple? Tasty.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours bright yellow with a pineapple aroma and a thin off-white head. There is an intense sweet malt flavor that turns to slightly sour fruit with a nice yeast presence.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Two Bottles from two different stores, for a reason to be noted later,
this ale had a yellow and orange juice pour with a bit of haze, and made hardly a cover, I poured fast to try to make a cover, I was unsuccessful, what little cover there was fizzed away and there were a few bubbles at the sides of the glass, there was no lacing in the glass, the bottle had a layer of light brown colored sediment on the bottom,
the presentation was disappointing, even pouring the bottom of the bottle did not help to make a cover or head,
the aromas were orange and peach citrus, some light pale malt, a little spice, floral and esters in the background with faint honey sweetness,
there were flavors of light malt, orange citrus, faint spice and esters, the finish had some malt and fruit with a little pepper on the tongue,
the mouth feel was a little watery and the carbonation was sort of flat,
there was a poor presentation which was a bummer, the nose and flavor was pretty good but could have been better with more carbonation,
the mouth feel was sort of flat, I tried two bottles of this beer from two different stores hoping to get a better presentation with the second
bottle, unfortunately, both bottles had little carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz Bottle. Aroma is pretty mellow, but has fruit, spice, and yeast to it. The taste is of heavy yeast with some spice, a bit of fruit (some peach, banana, some others I can’t really tell) along with some notable pepper and again...yeast! A good, well bodied beer with a solid mouthfeel and a great finish. Smooth, carbonated and to the point. This is absolutely up there with the rest of Avery’s best! 8.2% abv.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head - looks quite dull. Aroma is fairly yeast, with some dry apples and hay. Flavour is characterized primarily by the yeast and dry apples, not a traditional tripel by any means, but not a cloying sweet American "tripel" either. Finishes yeasty and apple-forward, with a medium duration. Decent, albeit forgettable tripel.

1.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Honey and yeast aroma. Honey gold color. Too bitter for a Belgian. Too much like an IPA. Lingering ghost of sweetness. I might have rated this a little higher had it not been from Avery and not been labeled a Belgian. I had high expectations from Avery’s other offerings and their other Belgian style beers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the Avery Tap Takeover at 4th Street Patio Bar and Grill on 09/26/2012: This brew pours a hazy straw color with a medium white head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, clove and yeast. Medium body with flavors of spicy yeast, malt, spices and a touch of hops. The finish is sweet with a grain and yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.
