Bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with a tall white fizzy head. Nose is malty with fruity notes, spice, and Belgian yeast. Medium bodied, somewhat oily mouth feel and decent carbonation. Flavor is moderately sweet with caramel, citrus, peach, spice, yeast, and hops bitterness. Finishes slightly sweet and spicy.

Pours a fizzy orange. Nose is spicy, cloves, sweet malts, candy sugar, sweet fruits. Flavor is a real nice crisp sweet malt, spicy yeast, cinnamon, cloves, mild banana, candy, bubblegum and ripe fruits. Maybe one of the best trippels i have ever had.

[750ml bottle] Really a very good beer. A little bit more than average carbonation. Color is a pretty yellow, and the head is medium and lasting. Very good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big thanks to fly!! Towering, dense, faintly-yellow head, leaving lace over orangeish golden beer, well-carbonated, hazed. Bit milky nose, smelling of sweet, sugary fruit (citrus mainly) and light cheesy twang. Sweetish, solvent-rich tripel, bit spicy, estery. Less fruity and sweet than the nose. Point of citrus all the same; banana warming up. Carbonation is very obvious, attenuation might well improve with aging. Rather well-bodied for a tripel, very slick to oily. Certainly not bad. I have no idea about the age/ripening of this beer, so I wonder if some raters tried this beer a tad to soon (young). Steven, please don’t tell me that you’re responsible for the drivel under the "commercial description", second alinea, no?

Bottle: Hazy golden pour with a white film of head. Honeyish graham cracker aroma- has some rotted pear esters as well. Fluffy body with a flavor similar to the aroma. Old sweet pears and honey notes. Definitely a typically sweet and under attenuated American Tripel.

750 ml bottle. One of the many flavors present here is banana. Many more unidentifiable flavors. Has a bitter, somewhat watery aftertaste. Though it tries hard to be as Belgian as possible, it doesn’t quite reach those heights.

Being a Dead fan, the title caught my eye, and I had to try it. Orangish-amber pour with a nice heady foam. Sweet aroma, fruity, belgian malts, very nice. The flavor is sweet, spicy, fruity, a nice flavorful mouth experience.

750 mL bottle (batch number T8088) from South Bay Drugs ($6.99). Pours a hazy honey amber color. The three fingers of white foam quickly dissipate to a thin layer. Mostly sweet aroma of malts and especially fruit (banana, apple, pear) along with some yeastiness and light spice. Flavor is really everything that’s found in the nose, though not quite as sweet as the nose would indicate. Finish is on the dry side and has a small amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and highly carbonated with a nice tingling on the tongue. Alcohol completely hidden; very drinkable.
