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!

Poured with a huge head. Very mild clove and banana aromas. Taste is very mild clove, banana and fruity esters. Wine like flavor in the middle, maybe due to age. Overall, I really enjoy this beer.

Draft at the brewpub. My favorite of the visit. Bright golden. Active. Fruity and light, yet delivering a decent kick. Quite good. (#4282, 10/4/2011)

Tap at pisgah - pours a clear gold with a white head. Aroma is rosin and spicy like clove, maybe? I canít place it. Taste is fantastic, a little sweet with a lingering bready,creamy finish. Overall, this is fantastic! I wouldnít have known this was almost 10% apv if they hadnít mentioned it.

Pours golden from large bottle bought at Bruisiní Ales. Aroma smells of baking bread and apple pie. Sweet to the lips but not on the tongue. Balanced taste with baking spices on the tongue and a clean finish. Like a good Tripel it hides its 9.5% very well.
