Murky golden in a tulip, thin head retention, nice quickly-fading lace. Wheat on the nose, not much else. Clove, banana, black pepper, ripe orange.

This ale is medium to full bodied. It is cloudy but otherwise very light in color. The malt taste is rich, but the hops are a little too heavy for the malt, leaving a bitter after taste.

One of the better ’merican tripels I’ve had. Has the classic Belgian yeast aroma with citrus, clove and banana.

Brought a bottle of this back from a trip to Houston. This was great. Huge classic nose, maybe a tad hoppier than others in this style (which is good). Very classic Belgian yeast and flavors with a little more bitterness.
Great beer. That is 2 for 2 with me for Real Ale Brewing!! (Blakkr was fantastic).

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sweet opening with a bit of a bitter aftertaste you can expect from a high % beer. Not my favorite but a nice beer to rotate in. The banana and clove makes it sweet without over shadowing the flavors.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a small foamy head that lasts. Smells of banana, clove and yeast. Tastes of yeast, light hops and malt with some banana and clove. Light alcohol taste. Nice, clean aftertaste. The yeast really makes this beer. Very nice!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at the flagship Whole Foods in Austin, TX; enjoyed while binge-watching House of Cards. Appearance is a slightly cloudy bright gold with a thin white head that is rather bubbly. Aroma of clove, light hops, Belgian ale yeast, sweetness, and light banana. Taste is pretty decent, sweetness is the primary component with banana notes and light clove. It tastes like banana Laffy Taffy with a touch of spice. Overall decent.
