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 TJs anniversary, but twas enough, twas enough. Adequate carbonation to tingle the tongue. Not too heavy. You wont 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.)

Solid Tripel. Good nose, dark fruit, bready, yeasty... Is this not what you want? It to go down smoove, it does, ass. It just needs a little more carbonation.

Not very good beer. But sounds good. Good descriptions but not that good of a beer. Flavors are Belgian like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Tow Yard. Medium orange-golden color. A strong, fruity aroma. Taste is more subtle, but the sweet (pear?) comes through. Very balanced flavor, with a slight alcohol burn at the finish. A light/medium carbonation. Really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at GTMW 2013 - Pours hazy amber with a thin off-white head. Nose is honeyed tropical fruit, overripe. Sweet and boozy. Taste is the same--boozy, fruity, and really sweet. Slick and low carbonation.

b3shine (5599) - Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Draft to taster at Brugge. Looks good for the style; a cloudy vibrant orange with white lacing. Smells solid; Belgian yeast, pear, and spices. Tastes like it smells with a bit of banana and vanilla. Nice and smooth on the palate. A nice example of the style.

Sample from beerfest. Poured a hazy yellow color with a smaller white head. Aroma was banana, spices, lemon and malts. Flavor was a lot of the same. Some bready maltiness to it. Tart finish. Something just a little off with this beer.
