Growler filled at the brewery on 03/16/13. A hazy amber pour with a thick beige head. Lots of ripe bananas, bubblegum, candi sugar, Golden Delicious apples, peaches, coriander, green grapes, lemon-lime, and a graininess in the aroma. Goes down medium to full-bodied and kinda syrupy at the start, yet with a fairly crisp finish. Interesting... Quite sweet upfront taste-wise with plenty of bananas, bubblegum, candi sugar, peaches, and Golden Delicious apples. There is a transition to tangy lemon-lime flavors, zesty citrus rinds, and a sizable wheaty/graininess at the end. Hints of spice throughout. The alcohol is well-hidden considering this is 10% ABV. Incredibly drinkable for a tripel. A unique and interesting take on the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
thin good, head gone fast, tepid. Banana nose is lighter than expected, dusty grain and light paint. Flavor is grainy, paint thinner, light, sugars in the end. Odd mix of styles, cuts sweetness but also focus.
