ClarkVV (5861) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Draught chalice at Redbones on 11/15/07
Lightly hazed golden with some amber highlights. One finger of dense white head that is very well-retained and laces profusely down the glass.
Wasn’t sure what to expect from this mostly American style brewer, was envisioning too much yeast, banana, phenols, etc...but the aroma is fairly reserved, showing off light apricots and candied orange, moderate amounts of vanilla and honey sugars and a tinge of pineapple on the finish. Some alcohol warmth, true to style, dries out the finish. Hops are minimal and show no trace of high alpha acids. A lightly sweaty, cedary almost, note from the yeast adds some Belgian flair. No flaws. Not terribly complex, and not incredibly "Belgian", but well done.
Clean and well-presented are the pale malts, with honey and lightly crisp specialty malts on the finish. Banana is low as is the yeast dullness, while some peach and apricot mix with alcohol esters to give more dryness on the finish. A bit astringent by the end of the glass, on account of the alcohol and malt breadiness, but still enjoyable. No flaws. Moderate carbonation and a fluffy, soft texture (with grainiess on the end).

bulldogops (2270) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2016
Rating #1910 - 2015.09.24 - #CraftTakesSeattle Beer 9 - Flight at taproom. Pour is pretty standard, hazy golden orange with a bubbly white head. Aroma is belgie yeast, orange peel. Mouthfeel is crisp, medium-heavy alcohol character, medium carbonation. Decent balance, alcohol isn’t confrontational, nice sweet notes linger into finish.

Clear golden color with a thin head. Sweet, fruity aroma with apricot. Mild, slightly bitter flavor with some residual sweetness and a floral aftertaste. Very good.

Tap at Pike. Clear yellow gold pour with a white head. Yeast and esters on the aroma. Slick medium palate. Maybe a bit too sweet. Decent.

ads135 (4254) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 30, 2016
An okay tripel. The Belgian yeast dominates, lending it some slightly off balance spicyness. Tried with Josh at the brewery in 2016.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Pours a bright golden yellow color. Aromas of hops, fruit, and a little yeast. Has a light lemony taste, with some yeasty notes, and a good hop flavor.

BillKismet (3863) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2016
The color of ancient amber with a thick frothy and lacy head. Wonderfully zesty bready and wheaty nose with licks of banana. Sweet and green banana flavors with some funky esters, and wheat bread. The flavors are a bit uneven--perhaps this would mellow a bit with additional aging. Not bad by any means, just a bit jarring with some of the rough edges.

hayduke (4948) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Pours a rich and hazy gold with a white head that left good lacing. Nose of banana, citrus, and clove. Full bodied. Smooth mouth feel. Flavor is fruity, with the banana and clove quite present. Good. Very good.

Fatehunter (2275) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Pours a thin head on a hazy straw body. The aroma is grain, barn musty and a little lemon. The taste is watery, boozy and dry grain. The texture is crisp and fizzy. Not great.
