Bottle from BMart. Deep amber pour with a thin head on top that produces spotty lacing. The aroma is yeasty, with fruity esters of banana and a little apple. There’s some bready notes as well. This definitely tastes like a Triple but the lower abv makes it lighter than most other Triples I’ve had. Candi sugary flavors mix with fruity apple esters, cloves, yeast, and light spices. It gets slightly dry in the finish with a touch of alcohol. I like this one.

Poured a deep dark red into a taster. Great complex flavor - hits with tons of citrus up front then more complex fruits follow. Cherry and raisins and spices. Excellent.

Shared by Dave. Thanks man.
The beer is amber hued with a small head that quickly diminishes to a wispy layer atop the beer. The aroma brings sweet fruit, a touch of yeast, assorted spice. Fruity esters and a bit of banana with some dark fruits soaked in alcohol. Mild oxidation. Medium bodied with moderately low carbonation. Decent. This was fun to try.

Bottle from Capone’s. Very cherry taste. Good drinkability and tasty. Smooth soft mouthfeel. I enjoyed it, but they must be kidding about taking out the cherry.

Really tasty! Big and boozy, sultry and complex. Despite all this it comes off as very drinkable. Reddish in color, a sweet and musty nose. Delicious!

12oz bottle, Scratch 46. Pours a dark amber color with a white head. Aroma is spicy, Belgian yeast, clove, banana. Medium body with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, fruity, raisin, cherry, banana, clove, with a spicy yeast finish. Interesting beer. I’d put it somewhere between a traditional dubbel and triple.

Scratch 46 - Reddish copper color with a thin white head. Great aroma of sweet fruit and sugar. Taste is not as sweet as the smell, but enjoyed across the palate. Sugar, biscuit, and a slight yeast, spice, alcohol note at the end leading to a dry finish.
