Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with a white head. Very present etoh latent bubblegum banana type esters. Sweet with candi sugars and some lighter spices subdued by sheer sweetness. EH.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 16, 2009
A decent effort for for this brewer. The head rises and falls to nothing. Liquid gold in the glass with strong aromas. Good flavor and carbonation. Itís a malt bomb with balanced sweetness. Itís on the flabby side with not much structure.

Sammy (8349) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2009
Bubble gum aroma. Medium yellow colour with off-white soapy head. ABove average carbonation. Too much yeast up front and aggressively carbonation. Other than that, drinkable. Candi helped to disguise the high alcohol. Medium mouthfeel overall, some off-sournish in finish. A half pint is a lot.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 16, 2009
2009 Bottle - Pours clear but thick orange with a small off white head...aroma is hot, with some pineapple, peach and banana, with some clove coming thru as well...flavour is fruity and thick, and there is enough alcohol for battlefield triage...yeasty and sweet with an odd burnt plastic bitterness in the throat...meh...

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Clear amber, quickly subsiding foamy white head that leaves marginal lace. Lots of fruitiness in the aroma with peach, pear, apricot, etc. some spiciness adds to the experience, and a background of honey and light toffee complements. Medium body and carbonation, some stickiness, just a bit syrupy. Decidedly sweet up front and that continues on into the finish, with only a slight spicy hop flavor to take the edge off. For my taste, it would be better were it a little dryer. There are layers of aroma and flavor that make it interesting.

topherh (1911) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Pours golden amber with a big white head. Aromas of clove, banana, bready yeast, and spices. Flavor is much the same with the alcohol slightly detecable .

IndianaRed (2313) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Bottle pours a crystal clear orange/amber with a big almost violent off-white head. Tons of effervescence. Even sounds like rice krispys. Light fruity slightly plastic smell. Cherries, apples and a little banana. Not very interesting flavor. Plastic...no..vinal. Alcohol burn and lingering dusty trailer. Lively carbonation. Disappointing.

hopdog (8769) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2009
22oz bottle. Bottle stamped May 21 09. Poured a medium and clear golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of spices, some yeastiness, fruity, burnt sugar, and some alcohol. Tastes of spices, the same fruitiness, candi sugar, and vanilla. Light to medium alcohol in the finish. Overall, not that bad of an American Tripel.
