Poured a straw colored yellow with a whispy lacing white head. Very floral aroma, slightly bitter smelling. Slithgly malty, slightly bitter flavor. Fruity like pears and pineapple. Extremely bitter, acidic and astringent finish in the throat. Could have been better.

750ml - thanks Irishboy - Aroma is yeasty bubblegum and banana. Some earthy hop funkiness as well. Pours transparent gold with cascading bubbles and a huge head, great sticky lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a bit more grassy hoppiness. Palate is creamy, clean, and dry. I was initially not too impressed, but as I kept drinking it, the complexity and depth began to show changing my aroma and flavor scores. A nice brew.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
GABF 2006. Clear blonde color, tight white head. Aroma - slight DMS, not much else. Flavor - typical tripel flavors are prominent, but more smooth than expected. Not as pleasing overall. Not a great beer. DMS detracts; otherwise decent.
