Bottle... Poured hazy, pale golden with a white head. Light fruit floralness, spice and yeast on the nose. Dry, well carbonated lots of pine, spice, banana, wheat, and quite nice with a yeasty finish.

Yes, quite drinkable. Nice flavor of the season. Iím sick of the winter. Bring on the spring and summer brews like this one. Iím sitting on the back deck , throwing a ball for Millie and watching the deer come back out into the back. Thank God.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slight hazed golden body with heavy carbonation. Towering bright white bubbly head. Substantial grainy malt body. Upfront in characterized with spices of clove and pepper with a subtle herbal quality. Fruit notes are pervasive along with a creamy banana note. Sweet belgian sugar throughout but not overly sweetened. Some straw and grain flavor . Came across as a bit thin.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle with Andrew and Carla. Pours a crystal clear piss yellow/light gold with lots of carbonation. Smells like a brew house. Tastes lightly wheaty with hints of bananas, cloves. More of an attempt at a hefeweizen than a tripel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle poured into a Trappist glass at 43į. Color is a light golden with a slight haze. Carbonation is light producing a thin white head. Aroma of fruit and yeast. It has a light body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is fruity with the yeast giving a light banana note followed up with a spicy hop taste and a gentle bitterness. After taste is clean with just a slightly dry bitterness on the back. Overall its a good Tripel, not a standout but it has some nice Belgian yeast flavors.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at fields. Pours a clear golden medium amber. Loose white head with nice sheeting lace. Sweet banana nose, a bit of sweet cream there as well. A little bit of dust in the background. Creamy medium body with a bit of fairly lively carb. Pepper, banana, cream, and a bit of clove on the mid palate. Bit of a hef tripel hybrid if the esters are to tell the tale. Mild pepper finish. Kind of an odd beast. Pleasant and drinkable, if unexpected.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Caponeís. My label is a confident vixen with long, thick white hair, burgundy lips and nails, and cupping a chalice of this brew with a sultry look of her face. This babe craves this beer bad, and then she craves something else even badder. The pour is vivid one hour-post-Centrum urine yellow with 2-finger white head. Nose is great medley of florals, yeasty spices, hopcitrus. Tastes floral, spicy, peppery, with yeasty rock sugary notes, hops, limey citrus, coriander, and a very good balance and top notch complexity. This one is very well made, and you wonít be able to stop pouring it into your eager mouth, and youíll indubutably crave it as much or perhaps even more than you crave the woman on the label.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazed golden pour, fluffy white head that falls to a white ring fairly quickly. Sweet, yeasty, spicy aroma, lots of pear and banana fruitiness. Light body with a little bit of sugary viscosity to it. Honey sweetness, more apple and banana fruitiness, yeasty spice dominated by clove, and an herbal hop character that is more prominent than most tripels. One of the better American produced tripels Iíve had for a good price. Definitely has that trait that tripels have of being extremely drinkable for their abv.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Definitely a different bottle than pictured. Only if I could meet a woman with such beauty and mystique, holding a goblet of this brew! One can fantasize, canít he? Anyways, the head disappeared quickly; Iím left with a slightly hazy golden-yellow body. Looks average. Honey, sugar, and yeast are dominating the aroma. Yawn. Nothing new here. The aroma is only slightly pungent. Flavor is very sweet, offering a nice sugary yeast flavor that is anything but ground breaking. Fuck, Iím being an insulting ass with this. Iím not meaning to be, Iím just finding this one a bit uninteresting. It fits the mold of your typical Tripel all too well. They could have done something to really make this one soar, but they didnít. Wow, a little surprise just hit my tongue, now that this has warmed up. Iím getting a slight hop bitterness that mixes in quite well with all of the flavors, previously mentioned. There are some decent aspects to this, but donít expect anything that is going to blow your mind.
