4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 11-15-12-
Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a golden orange colored brew with a one finger white head that has a decent retention, eventually fading to give a light level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of tropical and lighter fruits of tangerine, banana, pear, kiwi, and pineapple. With these fruity aromas are a good Belgian yeasty smell with an accompanied with a citrus and pine hop aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and sweeter tropical fruit taste. The tangerine and pineapple start the fruit taste profile, but are soon joined by a banana fruit flavor as well. With the entrance of the banana there is also an entrance of some yeasty and spicy (allspice and clove) tastes as well as a stronger citrus and pine hop flavor. These hop flavors grow even stronger toward the end of the taste and when there mix with a light alcohol flavor to leave a warming, hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side for one of 9.5% abv with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. Both the lighter body and the higher carbonation make more a more crisp mouthfeel overall.
Overall – Quite delicious ad very drinkable. One to give a go to if you have the chance.

Golden orange pour with a white head. Fruity esters and a nice spiciness of clove. Banana, hints of bubblegum, and citrus hop aromas. Sweet caramel malt, too. The flavor is a bit too sweet, but otherwise good. Bubblegum, banana, pear, and lots of citrus. Mild spice notes, yeast, caramel, and bread. Light pine and citrus bitterness.

Pours a pale golden-orange with a foamy white head and generous lacing. Aroma is typical Belgian fruitiness from the yeast and grapefruity hoppiness. Flavor is a caramel malt sweetness with a nice cardamom scented hop edge for the finish.

The tripel part of this beer overwhelms the IPA portion, but it’s still a solid brew. Sweet front and middle, slightly hoppy backend.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Floral, narcissus sweet aroma. Clear, gold. Incredible, lasting ice cream head. Tangy, sweet, mystery citrus, clear gel flavors. Crude, not good tripel, not good IPA. Fermentation Lounge, thx PorterPounder.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Fermentation Lounge on tap, slightly hazy medium golden pour with a firm thick head that would get up an walk away if you gave it the chance. Aroma has a clove-like presence with a hint of bubble gum. Flavor is decidedly sweet with some heavy Belgian Candi sugar, a solid dollop of bubble gum, a back end of cloves and some booziness permeating throughout. Thick sticky mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

Pours a cloudy orange with an excellent white head that stays. Sweet citrus aroma. Sweet caramel malt taste along with pink grapefruit, yet not bitter at all. Mostly dry hopped, I imagine. Good stuff.
