From notes. Tasted on 6/30/12 at the 1st Annual Chimipalooza, from a corked and caged 750mL bottle shared by Tim Duncan, I believe he mentioned that this had significant age. Pours hazy, very pale yellow with a thick white head that quickly disappears. The nose is lactic lemon sour with some light malt and a bit of spicy yeast. The flavor is almost exactly the same, nicely sour with a bit of malt and spicy yeast. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long sour and spicy finish. I don’t think that the sourness was intended, but I like it nonetheless.

GTAEgeek (1506) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Sample in a flight at the brewery. Pours light gold, with a small head. The aroma is wheat, apricots, and some light pine and floral notes. Sweet and fruity up front, but with a nice, light hop bitterness in the finish. Medium body, fairly effervescent, and clean. Overall, this is a nice, well balanced, and flavorful beer. Not the best or most interesting tripel, but a good beer.

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.
