3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden amber color with a sticky white head. Aromas of bubblegum, banana, seriously estery stuff, a bit of sugar, and some biscuity malts. Flavors were primarily sweet and estery, but with a very slight touch of woody earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel was perhaps my favorite part, being silky and sticky, it was very appropriate to the style. Clean finish, alcohol is present, but it’s an easy drinking bigger beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Couldn’t get much information on this other than it’s not the regular Tripel.
A: The pour is a clear golden color with a fluffy white head.
S: The nose starts off with sweet sugar and fruits with a lot of white grape notes. There are plenty of pale malts and candi sugar. There is a bit of banana in there, too.
T: There is a really nice banana flavor along with a mild spice, white grape and pears. The spice notes are mostly in the form of cloves. A bit more sweetness and substance from bread, candi sugar, and yeast.
M: Medium in body with a medium to high level of carbonation.
O: Green Flash has some misses, but this one was really quite good.
