COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the strong golden ales of Belgium’s Trappist monasteries, this beer pours cloudy with dense foam, from both the yeast and the addition of large amounts of unmalted wheat. The aroma is dominated by the yeast, with notes of clove, pepper, and banana. Bread, pepper, and banana blend together in the mouth to give an intense experience that hides the substantial alcohol content.

This golden ale was made with the strain of yeast normally reserved for Bavarian hefes: generator of strong banana esters and clove phenols. This gives the Tripel a serious banana aroma, somewhat sweet, with hints of clove and black pepper. There is barely a tinge informing you of the level of alcohol. The flavor is very malty, with a big bready, biscuity taste. It is somewhat sweet with a rich, round alcohol warming sensation. Noticeable as well are banana and clove flavors. The thick coating feeling probably derives from the fact that this tripel is not as carbonated as many. Despite the use of wheat and Bavarian weizen yeast, this beer is most definitely a tripel, and a well executed one at that.

Draft at Millstream Beer & Chocolate tasting event. Poured a hazy yellow-light orange color. The head was white and left some lace behind on the glass. Clove, subdued banana, and candy aromas. Medium bodied and semi-sweet with mild bitterness. Notably spicy finish. Clove, banana, candy sugar, and cereal grain flavors played well with the bitterness. Tasty.
