A traditional Belgian Tripel with complex flavors of clove, banana, and spicy esters. Deep yellow in color and medium bodied with a sweet finish.

Good for this style which I normally don't like. Cloudy orange with white thin head. Huge bubblegum and fruit burst. Tart. Had this poured from draft at saugatuck brewpub in Michigan.

Sample FOBAB ’12 - Poured light amber - thin off-white head. Aroma is relatively faint - some sweet malt, hint of vanilla, bit of wood...nothing remarkable. Flavor is okay as well, but far from memorable - some sweet malt, slightest hint of clove - not quite sure what is the goal here. Palate is ok but slightly thin. Meh....

Draft at Fobab 10. Pours a clear golden amber with a white head. The nose is pretty restrained. Sweet pils malt and fruity esters. Minimal hops with some vanilla notes. On tasting, moderately sweet and flabby. Lacks any of the fruitiness needed and is just bland. Dammit.

On tap at Seven Monks in Traverse City. Pours clear amber with a white head. Caramel and fruits in the aroma. Flavor has caramel, raisin, and yeasty cloves. A very nice beer.

At the Lucky Stone Pub, the brewery’s tap house. Oh dear. I’m only putting tripel as the style when adding this beer because that is what the menu stated. The missus took one sip and said, "That is not a tripel". Dull and lifeless and a bit soapy. No fine bubbles to the carbonation no tartness. Maybe SBC just has a quality control issue with some batches. Some of their beers are decent some has very strange flavors. I do want to like them so.Serving: Tap
