Served side by side with a Delirium Tremens, otherwise I may have liked this more. The Delirium was better in both feel (partly due to the higher carbonation) and flavor. S: plenty of yeasty banana with clove. Bready malt in the background. The flavor follows the nose,and had a bit too much of the banana/clove thing going on, as well being a shade too sweet. Hazy, in contrast to the bright, crystal clear Delirium, but with a similar large white head that had good retention. (from 2012 notes) O: falls short of world-class, but a fine attempt for an American and organic version of this Belgian style.

On tap at Pisgah during RBWG. Clear orange yellow color. Good thicker sheets of lace. Decent off-white ring of head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick... Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy. Awesome distinctive banana nose up front, light spice. Some light candy sugar. Obviously a tripel, just from the (pleasant) smell. Solid stuff.

11/27/13. On tap at Hi-Wire in Asheville. Solid guest taplist at that place. Golden pour, touches of orange, with a small khaki head. Okay aroma, mild fruitiness, some banana and sweet esters, candi sugar, pale malts. Flavor is plenty sweet, some fruitiness, banana, citrus fruits, a bit of molasses and candi sugar, pale, doughy malts. Not bad.

On tap at Davidson Beverage Company. Caveat up front I think most American made tripels are too sweet, and while this one was just a wee bit sweet for my taste, I thought it was outstanding. When I say a wee bit sweet I mean just a hair of the chinny chin chin sweet. I only wish I could homebrew a tripel this good. Great tripel, better than some Belgian made Iíve tried, and I could drink this all the time if it were available in my area. Nice job Pisgah Brewing Company.

Draft in a flight at the brewery. This was really too sweet and yeasty for my taste. Very off-putting. Great aroma, but the taste doesnít follow it.

Pale honey pour. Clove and banana aroma. The taste had the subtle fruits, banana, apple, and was very sweet for a tripel. Good mouthfeel...light.

Iím so glad the brewery is just down the street. Stopped in on my Asheville summer brewery tour to have a glass. Pours a hazy orange-straw into the glass, with a huge pillowy head that leaves fluffy whipped lacing. The nose has tons of banana and bubblegum notes. Lots of belgian yeast provides a bready note to the fruity esters, sweet wheat and banana flavors. Some clove enters toward the end, and couples with a touch of alcohol in the finish. The mouthfeel is a bit lighter than I expected, but still full-bodied and complex. A nice tripel Iíve had not the chance to rate until now. Tasty!
