Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a small, white head that fades quickly over a hazy golden body. Aroma is strongly spiced with coriander, ginger, banana, alcohol, candi sugar, and citrus zest. Taste is alcohol, banana, coriander, vanilla and goodness. Syrupy mouthfeel, light bubbles. Interesting take on the style.

The color is of a Tripel, but the aroma and taste is a Wit. Nicely done overall with a refreshing taste. I don’t get, though, in the taste too much or much of the Tripel. Not a lot of sweetness or candy sugar in there. Instead there is a lot of fruit in the taste. Possibly a very good choice on a summer day, not today’s cold.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nicely crafted beer from the folks at Charleville. Pours hazy orange / copper with a soapy off-white head. The aroma has coconut, banana, light sweetness, wheat, clove, coriander and tripel style maltiness. Medium body with light carbonation. The flavor starts with nectar fruits, banana, pepper, orange, coriander, a touch of abv and an overall smoothness. The finish gets a bit creamy with rich coconut showing. abv is quite well hidden as well. A really nicely crafted beer and a home run for the price ($4.50/22 oz) considering the quality and alcohol content.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is a cloudy orange with no real head to speak of. Aroma is a very nice spice, corriander and yeast. Flavor is also a very decent citrus fruit with some banana and cloves. You actually start out with some wit flavors but the triple flavors follow up nicely. This is a very good and well made beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted 1/21/09. 22oz sample bottle. Hazy with a golden orange hue. Ring of off-white head. Citrus and coriander aromas with lemon and banana layered aromas. Medium to full bodied with a sweet flavor. Moderate effervescence. Chalky with a tasty dose of pepper. This is a well masked 9% beer. Ample, yer lightly roasted malt character. Toasty. Good yeast characters that give off a berry, estery finish. Citrus hops in the finish, yet mild. Great drinkability, for the high gravity. The alcohol creeps as it warms, but tastefully. Good zesty character. Great job! Thanks to Mike & Tony for the delivery!
