3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a hazy deep golden with a large white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of bananas, citrus, yeast, spices, and sweet malt. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and smooth alcohol. Very good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A very flavorful grand cru. There is quite a mix of flavors here from dark fruits to bitter spices. It is almost over the top and finishes very strong.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Bar Great Harry. Poured into a Palm tulip a cloudy amber with a creamy off-white head. Bready aromas marked with banana, mild spice and floral notes, becoming more yeasty after a while. Sweet cakey malt and sticky fruit flavors--banana, pear, white grape, fresh fig, even a bit of peach and pineapple. Slight tinge of spiciness on the finish cuts into the fruitiness. Full yeasty body with fine carbonation. Pretty nice all around.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours a clear golden color with a small but lingering white head. Aroma is slight clove and banana, with vanilla detectable as well. Taste is the same, with the flavors delicately dancing across the tongue. Finish is vanilla, which is a vast upgrade from the usual watery finish of Brooklyn’s Belgian ales. I was incredibly surprised by this one, and I hope their future Belgian offerings are the same high quality.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy yellow in the glass with an off white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with corriander and orange notes. Taste is fruity with a slight banana ester and an extremely dry and smooth finish. This is definitely one of the best beers I’ve had in a long time.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ redlight reflight. Pours a hazy blonde with a smallish white head, leaves a little lacing on the glass. On the nose coriander, candi sugar, cloves and bready yeast. In flavor this is sweet with a spicy/herbal hop and coriander presence. The sweetness is a little cloying, could use a little more lift in the mouthfeel as it ended up on the verge of being too heavy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from Bierkraft, Brooklyn. Pours hazy gold with a slight orange tint, with a healthy white head. Aroma is fruity - bananas and apricots, with a big fresh-baked-bread note coupled with a spicy yeast presence. Taste is sweet candy and wheat up front with a big yeasty spice presence, with overripe golden fruit coming on a fairly clean, lightly yeasty finish. Light bodied, creamy carbonation. Really a nice beer, very drinkable for the style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
As a Belgian beer fan, I was expecting something more out this brew from one of my favorite brewers. Ratebeer user FREDANDBOBOFLO really hit my thoughts on the head when he called it an "unrefined tripel." Not enough carbonation for my palate, that being said it is a quality Belgian style, but not great.
