Thanks to TChrome for the trade. As if buying beer wasn't an enjoyable enough experience, doing it for a good cause makes it all the better! This is one of the more enjoyable Tripels I have had to boot. Pours a lightly cloudy and bright yellow-orange/apricot color with a medium thin white head. Thin and quick lacing. Aroma of citrus, banana and hops. Medium-bodied with a nice blend of citrus, pepper, coriander and apricot. The finish has a bit of alcohol kick to it, along with some fruit.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle and damn good! Gold/orange color with a white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with a subtle note of hops. Spices, sugar and malt come through both on the nose and in the flavor. A slight bit of hops keeps this one balanced very well. I really enjoyed this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sparkling clear, beautiful golden ale.
Small, fizzy, white head.
The nose is malty, fruity,spicy and lemony with a small note of bubblegum. Also a marriage of apricot, pear and clove.
The flavor is sweet up front with a burst of the same marriage of apricot, pear and clove. Banana and apple. Well-bittered to mostly balance things out.
Full-bodied with a fizzy and astringent mouthfeel. Lengthy, moderately bitter finish. A winner! A good cause too!

22oz bomber thanks to OldStyleCubFan! I’ve never even heard of this beer. So what’s the story with it? Anyway, pours blonde with a decent white head. Not much retention or lace. Aroma is laden with cloves, overripe bananas. Taste is very sweet, loads of candi sugar, bananas, red apples. Dry, powdery, messy finish.
