bottle - Pours hazy yellowish-orange with almost no head. It has an assertive citrus and yeast aroma and a sweet, citrus flavor. The medium body and light carbonation gives it a pleasantly smooth mouthfeel. The finish is light and mildly sweet.

Pours a hazy golden orange amber with small floaties and barely any head. Just a light hint of white bubbles. Aroma of green apple, candi sugar, white grapes, hints of banana, some citrus and yeast. Flavor of yeast, caramel, various fruits...but flat. Not sure if something went wrong when they carbonated...or it became flat later. But either way something was off about this one.

Bottle. Cloudy amberwith frothy white head. Sweet aroma of pears, brown sugar, yeast, caramel. Yeast really was evident and in not such a pleasant way. Medium body. The yeast took away from the flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light hazy yellow pour. Extremely yeasty aroma and flavor that didn’t mix very well with the hop profile. The yeast and hops contrasted in a really unpleasent way for me. Not my style of beer at all. If I want some yeast, I’ll drink a hefe-weizen. This was just too much.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2007 This is not my style. Too little hops. However, this is a fine US brew that may rival a lot of Belgian ales.

Many thanks to Beerdrenched for picking this tripel up for me. Pours light gold with white head that leaves quickly. Aroma has a huge amount of fruit - passion fruit, white grapes and kiwi. There is also a lot of spicy and some Belgium earthiness. Medium body with fairly light carbonation for the style. Taste is very fruit as the aroma suggested - passion fruit and apricot are most noticeable. The finish bring the earthy aspects and spice. There is a bit of a cardboard taste on the finish. This is a nice American version of a tripel.
