12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a thin whit head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of classic belgium yeast, clove, honey, candy, and a little citrus. Flavor is along the same line with a bit of sweetness and more citrus. Good fizzy carb, med body, light syrupy texture, sweet and smooth finish. This beer is almost too drinkable for as big as it is (around 10% or so), so careful they go down easy and the alcohol is completely hidden untill afterwards.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Hazy gold pour. Enticing yeast aroma of ripe banana, apple and vanilla all wrapped in barnyard funk and earthiness. Soft, smooth carbonation is quite fitting, creating a luscious mouthfeel. The body starts tart - noting apple and pear - but quickly moves to a long, sweet finish of brown sugar and caramel. There is a nice alcholic heat throughout. Look out, this brewery has been doing some good things lately.

Pours gold with a white, lasting fluffy head. Smells of citrus, some dry malt, some perfumy hints. Tastes of citrus, some sweet candi sugar, grassy, spicy. Enjoyable.

barenada (211) - Georgetown, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2005
(draft) A fairly standard tripel with a hnt of apricots. Quite good. I wish I could say more about this beer, but there was really nothing special about it.

Growler. White grape and peach malt aroma. Bright yellow color with minimal head. Sweet grape-peach malt aroma with a mild alcohol finish. Very nice beer - really enjoyed the grape flavor in this one.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 13, 2008
On tap at Rich Os - Pours burnished golden with a mostly receding wispy off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, banana, apricot and bubble gum. Taste is fruity and estery with many of the aromatic notes combined with a gentle candi sugar sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with lush carbonation. A well done tripel, one of the better American examples.

awiseman01 (469) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Bottle from Crown #19. Pours hazy pale yellow with fading bubbly white head. Nose is similar to a wheat wine with citrus hints. Taste is full and juicy, orange pokes out among other citrus flavors. Lots of sweet yeast and candy. A solid effort from the locals.

jcr (2198) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Golden pour. The nose was spicy and full of yeast and malts. The flavor revealed notes of coriander and cinnamon with a sweet fruit background before yielding to the alcohol. The medium body was soft and smooth on the palate. A bitter bite followed its way into the dry finish. Tasty and enjoyable.

weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2006
Thanks to hopdog for this... Appears a light gold with a small white cap that fades out quickly. Small streams of bubbles rise quickly to the top. Tiny traces of lacing is left around the glass. Smell is of peaches, ncetarines, apricots, candy sugar, and yeast. Taste is of the same aromas with a mild amount of spice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with seemingly near perfect carbonation that plays along the palate.

ChainGangGuy (4362) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, deep yellow body with a small, bubbly, white head. Smell: Aroma is a mishmash of notes smelling of pale malts, banana, clove, yeast, candi sugar, sauvignon blanc, and ginger. There ya go! Taste: Candyish palt maltiness with minor tastes of banana and clove. Splash of white wine. Slight yeastiness. No apparent bitterness. Remains sweet until the very tailend of the finish. Lingering taste of ginger. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight stickiness to the mouthfeel. Drinkability: Good, though a bit on the sweeter side for tripels. Id certainly be up for another.
