Deep golden hued, with subtle hints of vanilla, clove, and cinnamon. Fruity, spicy, and warming with a complex but soft malt character. Editor’s Note: Limited edition summer seasonal for 2009 but pilot batches were available at fests and the brewpub prior to this release.

Braudog (6342) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Bottle. Poured with a nice orange-golden hue, shiny and still, yet with a formidable foam head. The aroma is of banana creme, expectant of a creamy delight. Although it’s not quite dessert-worthy, the beer still delivers -- tight with sharp yeasty goodness, a hint of spice, and a tickle of tropical fruit. (#3645, 8/19/2009)

riversideAK (6153) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Everything about this was average and generic. Golden color. Light spicy, banana, sweet candy aromas and flavor. A touch of alcohol. Well made, but extremely generic to me.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2009
In short: A mega sweet flowery extra-clean Belgian blonde ale. Boring.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed relatively fresh, about 4 months after purchase
The look: Clear golden body topped by a very small white head
In long: Nose of sweet bakery, flowers and yeast. Taste is very sweet, lots of sweet cookies, sweetened white bread, sweetened bananas, flowery hops. Basically just about every flavour I tasted in that beer can be prefixed with the word “sweet”. Except for the hops of course, I cannot taste sweet hops, only Quevillon can taste sweet hops.

BuckeyeBoy (5988) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 26, 2010
On tap at Redhook brewpub. Pours out a cloudy gold/orange topped with a small white head. Aroma was of pit fruit, yeast, spice, and sweetness. Taste more of the pit fruit sweetness along with a good amount of alcohol showing through.

decaturstevo (5788) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Golden/orange pour with white head. Aroma of orange zest, light abv. Flavor is brown sugar, resiny hoppiness like bitter, a citrus zest, and a nice abv warmth. A light medium body with no off flavors and a crisp clean flavor. A big beer with the deceptive air of drinkabiltiy. A creeper for sure. Nice carbonation

dwyerpg (5649) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 26, 2009
A decent spice aroma. Flavor is fairly spicy not too light. Good stuff. Zestiness is the prevalent characteristic, but it is overall just okay.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Bottle from Windy City. Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Bread, honey, and mild spice aroma. Bright lively palate. Tastes of malt, vanilla, some sweet spice, and a very bready finish.

thornecb (5503) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Pours bright amber into a tulip. Bright white head slowly recedes leaving slight sheets. Coriander and alcohol aromas. Sweet cloves upfront turning to a strong vanilla alcohol burn.

Rciesla (5500) - 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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle: Poured a golden color with a light white head. The nose is fruity but very lacking in the ester department. Some predominant sweet herbal notes along with some sweet fruity front of the tongue notes upon first tasting. The body is light and snappy but the flavor still feels a bit medieval. Thick and sweet, more herbal, hops are showing, but still uneven vs the nose. Good tripel, but I was hopping for more carbonation and a little thinner in the body.
