3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Fat Headís Cleveland on 9/11/12. Clear gold pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of banana, clove and malt. Banana and clove flavor with some additional spice before a bubblegum finish. I detected no maple but my girlfriend said she did, which proves to me that banana character from yeast absolutely dominates my palate when present.

Brewed with locally sourced maple syrup, aromas and flavors or ripe red apples, bubblegum, and spicy phenolics. Maple syrup provides a crisp yet complex sweetness to the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at brewpub. Served crystal clear pale lemon yellow with a pleasant bright white ring of foam. Nose is fruity, bubblegum, subtle maple and green notes. More of the same on the palate as fruity esters and sweetness take over to round out this Tripel. Not much on the maple side to showcase the sugars. Drinkable
