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 itís scary.

marcus (6436) - 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 (1643) - 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 thatís no bad thing.

keepersj12 (2679) - 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 (3824) - 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 Iíd brag to people about.

drowland (5993) - Valdosta, 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 (4911) - 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 (3276) - 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 (3869) - 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.

daknole (9052) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Cloudy pour, white head. Loads of spices, fruit, bready, yeasty aromas. Flavor is sweet and spicy with good fruit end yeast.

Ernest (6198) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), lightly yeasty (basement/cement), with notes of banana, alcohol (fusel - bug spray), cotton candy, gum. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. The first sign of danger is the bottle itself...thatís some of THE worst label art Iíve ever seen. Just hilariously awful. Sure, the name "Mactarnahanís" is already enough caution by itself, but those middle school notebook cover scribblings will only serve to diminish expectations further. And...no surprise...the beer itself is a clumsy sweet banana-bomb that is all too prevalent as an excuse for a Belgian tripel in this country. Some fusels as well suggests this was rushed. Drain pour, but worth a laugh.
