3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"Solid tripel, and reasonably priced (as all GF brews) at that. Fruit and spice at the forefront, a touch of alcohol, and a smooth dry spicy finish. Not too shabby..."

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer from BA review on 8-10-13-
Poured from bottle into a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer pours a moderately hazy orange amber color with a one finger just off white head. The foamy head has a great level of retention, very slowly fading, with it as it fades, leaving a fantastic foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell- The aroma is very heavy of banana, yeast and spice of coriander and clove. It has a drier smell overall for a triple with less sweeter smells of citrus and sugar. While it is drier overall, it does have some aromas of a lighter sweetness being of the more classic smells of orange and a bit of candied sugar. Along with these aromas is a cracker malt smell which, all in all, adds nicely to the drier yeast aromas of the brew.
Taste –The taste starts with a biscuit and cracker flavor mixed with lots of banana upfront. As the taste advances it begins sweetening and gets more flavors of yeast as well. The sweeter flavors are mainly of a citrus and apricot nature, but contain a little bit of a candied sugar taste as well. The yeast, as it comes to the tongue, brings with it spice or clove and a bit of coriander. The maltier flavors lose strength toward the end, while the sweeter and yeastier flavors grow stronger. At the end, a alcohol taste as well as lemon and a little bit of a grassy and hay-like tart flavor come to the tongue, to in the end leave a warming but crisp and drier triple flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the average to maybe slightly above average side for a triple of its strength with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. A bit more carbonation may have been slightly better for the triple nature and flavors of the brew, but all in all it was pretty decent.
Overall – A rather nice drinking triple that starts out drier and gets sweeter and boozier but also smoother more toward the end. It is a rather nice brew overall and a nice one to try.
