Enormous white head, fruity yeasty aromas. Hazy and golden. It’s very spicy and the mouthfeel is bubbly and refreshing. Almost great. Yep, Mickey Finns(?)

beer-yum (879) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 25, 2015
Alluring ’Tripel’ aroma in a light golden pour. Superbly well balanced taste with all the complexity of the Belgians and a lot of the subtlety to match. As good as, if not better than, most of the style.

tfontana (185) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle from Harvest Market, Bedford NH. Aroma is yeast (that flirts with going over the edge to the overfermented, vomitous side, but doesn’t), a bit like Chardonnay or champagne, with mild fruity esters. Appearance is hazy yellow with mild sparkle and finger-width white fizzy head that dissipates fairly quickly. Lacing does not linger. Taste is balance of moderate fruity sweet and minimally sour. Palate is medium bodied with carbonation that is too lively--like drinking freshly poured ginger ale, with slight initial sting to the front of the tongue that detracts from the taste experience. Finish is dry and abrupt. Overall, a really good beer but not one without faults.

Bottle @ rattle ’n hum NYC. Giallo dorato con riflessi ambrati. Velata. schiuma bianca, fine non molto persistente. Aroma intenso, fruttato, esteri del lievito, pesca sciroppata, albicocca matura, un po’ di gomma, spezie (coriandolo in semi e cannella). gusto pieno, amabile l’ingresso, fruttato ed alcolico, poi note acidule, e finale amaro erbaceo senza eccessi. Retrogusto di zucchero candito e caramello. Carbonata, poco corposa,rotonda, piena. Equilibrata e di grande armonia.

aleigator (496) - GERMANY - JUL 31, 2015
Yields a completely hazed, sun-yellow color, with a small white head, leaving back a thick lacing. Smells of an intriguing blend, featuring clove, cardamon, white pepper and slightly spiced dried fruit, especially lemon. Has a high, very lively carbonation, enabling the peppery and sweeter spices and a very soft, dough ending. Drinks best in small sips, as for its intense spice profile. Dough yeast brings peppery spices immediately to the palate, balanced by wild honey and spring flowers. Rock sugar adds to the prominent spices, almost creating a short burn, evoked by the high carbonation and the higher alcohol, gently coated up by the soft yeast. Finishes with rock sugar, amping up the spices even more, bringing back a flowery note and well pronounced clove. Well working, old school triple, featuring a very pronounced spiciness, which defines the beer’s taste throughout. Exhibits a fuller and very pleasant mouthfeel, with feathering yeast doing a great job in balancing the spice onslaught

Tons of pressure behind the cork followed by tons of white foam in the glass. Nice lace work as it collapses. Smooth Tripper with a nice yeasty flavor to it. Definitely a keeper for a cellar.

bigda83 (513) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Sample pour from bottle. Pours a bright yellow, clear, fluffy white head to it. Aromas of fruit, yeast, spice. Flavor had banana, lemon, grass, sour funk. Pretty solid brew. Full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation with a dry finish. Not bad all.

MarkoNm (1745) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 22, 2015
Pours a hazy golden color, topped with a decent white frothy head, ok retention. Malty, yeasty aroma, some fruity notes and spices. Taste is similar, yeasty with some spices, alcohol can be noted, slight malty sweetness and mild bitterness. Not unpleasant, but not to my liking as well.

Rated based on notes taken 21 Dec 2012 -- Drank at the Flying Saucer in Houston. Pretty solid beer. I think this is my first craft beer I ever drank from Canada.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 12 oz bottle. Hazy yellow, orange with a short bubbly white head. Pretty beer, huge lacing. Aroma is thick with very ripe fruit, banana, spices. Beer is spicy with white pepper, clove, and coriander, just a little bitterness. Banana, citrus, apple cider, pears. Very good carbonation. A long time favorite.
