Poured a clear straw color with a fine lasting head. Aroma is of soft malt, bubble gum, and yeasty spice. Flavor is similar with some banana and an agressive and harsh hop bitterness and flavor. Mouthfeel is crisp with a light creaminess is ruined by the bitterness and an unpleasant aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 8-9-12 -
Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance –Served a light golden color with a fine white head. The head faded fast to leave a light amount of lacing.
Smell – The aroma of the beer was heaviest of Belgian yeast, banana, and notes of grass. Mixed with these smells were lighter aromas of a spicy and citrus aroma which overall created a pleasant smell.
Taste – The taste began with a base of fruit and yeast While it is fruity it is not to sweet.. The fruit is largely banana and pear in nature. As the taste advances flavors of a floral nature mixed with some more bitter citrus come to the tongue. These in the end are met with some spice notes of coriander, clove, and pepper as well as a good dose of alcohol to leave a rather tingling bitter-sweet warming taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather creamy with the carbonation level being quite average.
Overall – A moderatly tasty triple with good fruit flavors. One to try if the chance arises but not one to go out of the way.

Bottle pour into Belgian glass. Not much head on a orange colored beer. Lacing is pretty sparse. Taste is sweet...quite a bit of sugar actually. Some fruit presence (banana). Very good aftertaste. A little bit run of the mill in terms of a tripel. A good effort but in need of some additional refinements. Worth a try.
