Pours clear light amber. Fruity aroma plum, mild spice. Almost no head retention. Taste of a good Belgian clone. Refreshing palate, like it a lot.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
New 12 oz. bottle, listed 9% ABV. Pours a fairly clear golden with a decent off-white head that settles to a ring and leaves some soapy lace. Nose involves Belgian yeast spice, some stone fruit, maybe some honey, some floral notes. Pretty sweet, some bitter, a touch tart. Medium to full bodied, softer, some oiliness, bright with a spicy, fruity finish. Decent brew, easier drinking for the style. Perhaps begs for some more complexity.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, honey gold with a small white cap.
Aroma of soft yeast, lemon/citrus, green banana.
Taste is sweet fruit, lemon/orange malt...alcohol bitter...though not as boozy as expected.
Fairly good, though not overly memorable.

On tap at Upland. A bright, clear golden color. A bright, light, fruity taste, but not overpowering. Medium carbonation. Very saison like. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft from the Upland Tasting Room. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, citrus fruits, sugars, and sweet malts. The flavor is the same. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, sweet mouthfeel. Hides the alcohol well. But not that interesting overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber bottle via trade. Poured a syrupy rusty copper body under a foamy white head. Aroma of dough, fruit esters, dates, sugar, alcohol. Fuller thick body with nlively carbonation and some noticable heat from the 9.6% ABV, lingering aftertaste. Flavor of yeast, sugar, banana peel, tropical fruit rind, dough, dates.Odd it’s listed as a Belgian Strong Ale since it’s a Tripel. Originally there were some odd flavors/aromas for a tripel but those all dissapeared over time so a tripel it is.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle in a teku. Pours deep golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel malts, light fruits, a little bit of dough, and hints of alcohol. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A pretty good beer but not the best of the style.
