Draft. Nice spiciness, clean but yeast, light esters, good malt honeyness, one of the better ones made in the us.

Had a glass on tap at Alexandriaís in Findlay. Meh, Iím not a big fan of the style, but this was ok. Too boozy and sweet for me.

Burnt orange color with medium off-white head and minimal lacing. Aroma is malty and yeasty. Flavor has light fruits, nice spice and yeastiness, with a strong amber malt. Oily mouthfeel, thick, with a slight alcohol tingle.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2014
[Tap] Muddy orange color with a small cap of head. Excellent looking lacing. Aromas of Belgian yeast, clove and grainy malts. Taste includes more clove, nutmeg, vanilla, cereal grains, banana, dough, residual sweetness, toasted breads and darker fruits like plum. Nice complexity. Rich body. Originally I thought the balance between yeast/malt seemed a little off, but this beer really grew on me as I drank it.

On tap at GLBC as Belgian Tripel Dog Dare. Hazy orange/amber pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of banana, orange, caramel and spices. Flavor starts spicy, then turns citrusy with orange, lemon zest and caramel before a semi-boozy finish.

keanex (1423) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Hazy ruddy amber body with a firm and creamy light tan head.
Aroma: The aroma is sweet with bubblegum and banana being the most prominent. Hints of clove linger in the back with a touch of vanilla. I like the ester profile here, very fruit, but strong.
Taste: Sweet flavor with bubblegum and banana coming through strongest with a mild clove finish. Lingering on the finish is a light prick on the tongue and a dash of floral bitterness.
Palate: Full-bodied with sharp carbonation.
Overall: This isnít a real stand-out tripel, but itís darn good. Iíve drank a bunch of this over the past two days, a sample here and there, and each time I enjoy it. This is much worth a try if you like the style.
