12oz bottle - Poured a deep amber with creamy white head. Nice smell of malted grains, bread, and spices. Flavors of spice, raisins, over-ripened fruit, and a woody herb. Alcohol is somewhat detected along with a bitter finish, but it’s not overpowering.

Pours a golden yellow with white head. Nose is sweet, banana, cloves. Taste is of classic Belgian yeast, and some sweet banana that’s tempered by slightly bitter hops. Finish is slightly sweet, slighty bitter, and a touch dry. A good American take on the trippel.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Delicious gold. Pours its own head, since you can try to pour it without. Creamy white, if you were wondering. Nice, sweet malt offset off the back of the tongue by the hops goodness. Don’t go after beer as a first choice, but this almost matches a braggot in character. And, seriously, that head! This is more or less what I could ask from a beer of this particular gravity. Would drink again.
