3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
tap at brewery-pours lightly hazy orange with a small fizzy white head and no lacing. nose is sweet, with sugar and lemmongrass. Sweet alcohol flavors are actually pretty well balanced wbut with a bit of green apple flavors, which brings it down a bit. decent but not great-long grainy finish shows that the beer needs a little work .

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.
