A: The pour is a fairly clear golden orange color with a nice big white head to go on top. S: Fairly sweet with lots of fruit notes. I get pears, apples, and banana for the most part. There’s a nice spiciness of nutmeg, coriander, and clove. Sweet malts and a substantial sugar component as well. T: Lots of sweet apples and bananas on the tongue. Sugary sweetness along with some sweet malts. The yeast and spice notes are there, giving some coriander and clove type flavors. M: Medium in body with a full carbonation that really fills the mouth nicely. O: A good beer and tripel, but definitely a bit too sweet for me.
