COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A surprisingly sublime Belgian-style triple offering an electrifying blend of spicy aromatics balanced with a lively malt palate that is so good its scary.

650 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, lasting white head, with a bit of lacing, over a clear, dark yellow (SRM 4) body.....nose is cereal, light clove, hints of banana/bubblegum, hints of honey....taste is light clove, banana/bubblegum, hints of honey floral sweetness, light colored fruits (apple, pear) finishing with a medium dry pepper bite....mouth feel light of medium, alcohol hidden, carbonation adds a pleasant spritz. This is a nicely balanced if slightly sweet Tripel. It is not as complex as the very best, but it is well within the aroma, flavor context of this lovely style. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

portableparty (2019) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2012
22 oz. bottle to tulip. Pours clear yellow gold with a quick fizzy white head that dissipates to a tight thin collar. Aroma has good fruitiness and yeast that reminds me of bubblegum and wheat bread. Taste is just like the above, but there is spice and the alcohol shows through in the end. Palate is medium and slick with good carbonation that finishes dry. Solid, but nothing out of the norm.

marcus (7297) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle from Total WIne, Sacramento. Pours golden with a thick off-white head and a spicy aroma. There is a sweet caramel malt flavor with some candi sugar, spices and a lively yeast presence.

dfinney23 (2159) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Pours crystal clear gold with a big head that fades fairly quickly. Aroma of yeast and fruit salad. Taste is more hefeweizen than Belgian triple, complete with banana and clove, but thats no bad thing.

keepersj12 (2880) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Nice Belgian style aroma with clove, banana and other spices. Lots of fruit in there too. The flavor has the spices and fruit, nicely balanced with hops. Clear gold with a soapy white head.

IrishBoy (3926) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Bomber from Country Club Liquors. Nose is grassy hops, banana, slight cloves, and white bread yeast. Hazy urine yellow with a medium, lightly lacing, pale yellow head. Flavor is banana, white pepper, and light alcohol. Drinkable but not one Id brag to people about.

drowland (6662) - Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2012
3/28/12. 22oz bottle. Hazy golden pour with a small khaki head that fades. Huge yeasty aroma, a bit astringent, shows the alcohol... almost like yeast and nail polish remover. Sweeter, fruitier flavor with lots of esters, some pale malts, bubblegum, and a slightly dry, acidic finish. Not terrible.

Strykzone (5383) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Bomber. Very clear gold with active bubbles jumping up from the bottom of the glass. A soapy white head fades quickly. I smell banana and a bit of spice and a hint of hop notes. The flavor begins with light fruit and bananas. Alcohol is tasted. Yeast is a bit different and spice is interesting. The base is quite malty and sweet. A prickly feel and a bitter aftertaste builds slowly. This is nice and almost authentic Belgian.

Cybercat (3874) - Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Aroma is not strong but still inviting, fruity, malty and a little yeasty. It pours a clear solar yellow with a thick, fluffy and rather persistent white head. Rich flavor has firm pear, banana and yeasty notes with a malty underpinning and a subtle alcohol nip. Lively, fizzy flavor gets the attention of your mouth and trachea - you can feel it all the way down to your tummy. A spine tingler indeed!

jkwood04 (4511) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 20, 2012
22oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours deep, transparent golden with a thick, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel malts, and some floral hops. Flavor about the same. Average texture. Not bad but not the best of its style.
