Draft. Brew Pub, Indy. I’ll begin with a caveat - I may have been drunk when I sampled this. However, the three other people I was drinking with agree - this is a brilliant tripel. Wicked fruity character to it, which was unexpected. Excellent colour, decent head. A fantasti beer through and through - I’ll update this review when I can remember the beer a little better!

On tap at the brewpub into a tulip. The biggest review beer with a good review, I gave this one a try first. Let down...Pours an ugly dark gold, muddied. A light off white head that only rises a weak finger, but sticks for awhile...A dead and boring aroma, light floral yeast and banana...The taste is strong belgian yeast, way way to much. Light floral notes, alcohol really comes through on the finish. This was the least impressive of the beers we drank. I would not recommend this beer.

Tap at Brugge. Pours a hazy orange. Like apricot purée. Aroma of clove, spice, banana chips and pepper. Flavor of banana and clove mostly. Some wet socks and funk in the finish. Well done.

draft at Mad Anthony Oktobeerfest - Pours very hazy yellow-orange with a huge head that leaves abundant lacing. It smells of spicy Belgian yeast and bananas. The sweet flavor has banana and citrus notes and leads into a somewhat dry finish. Good tripel.

Aroma of honey, clover and lavender. Appearance is cloudy gold with white head. Flavor matches the nose, with some cherry flavors as well. Palate is bubbly. Pretty good Tripel.

Bottle from a trade awhile back. Suprisingly good. Crisp, refreshing, and mildly tart. No overpowering yeast or banana flavors as is common for the style.

(draught at brewpub) cloudy deep orange-yellow with spare bubbles. Nose of banana, bubblegum and other fruit esters. Taste of banana, doughy bread, and other fruit esters. Light mouthfeel that’s lightly carbonated.

This beer was recommended by the owner/one of the owners of Crown Brewing in Crown Point, IN (where I had lunch and a flight :-). I purchased this out of the refrigerated case at Wise Guy Liquors in CP, IN. It was reasonably priced at around $7 or $8. 750 ml traditional Belgian bottle with painted label and metal crown closure. Not a lot of ’pop’ when opening. Poured with a 1.5 to 2 inch head into a 0.4 ltr goblet. A little darker than I think necessary. Lovely Belgian Tripel aroma of spices and yeast. The aroma of this one foreshadows the taste. A nice balance of malty goodness with spice and yeast (if you like the flavor of Belgian Abbey yeast you will most likely appreciate this ale). Could use a bit more carbonation; not so much as a TJ’s anniversary, but t’was enough, t’was enough. Adequate carbonation to tingle the tongue. Not too heavy. You won’t realize you are drinking such a high gravity beer (a hallmark of the style). I really enjoyed this one. Maybe someday it will come to my home town on tap. As a native Hoosier I would be able to brag there is great beer made in Indiana (we consider Hammond part of Chicago - same time zone, etc.)
