COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Enchanting and enlightening, this golden, frothy ale boasts an intriguing herbal aroma, warming alcohol esters on the tongue and light, but firm body to finish. Exotic spices add subtle notes to both the aroma and flavor. Strong, sensual and satisfying.

Excellent flavor and balance. Didn't feel the spices as advertised. Yet, a good brew to match with seafood. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This stuff is the bomb. Tastes great and high ABV. I will be buying again.

bennetporter (223) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Pours an amber from a bottle. Nose is a nice banana-y yeastiness, some bread, some spice. Flavor is all of those with a good floral hop to it. A warm alcohol finish is nicely balanced. Very good beer.

GenDV138 (2767) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2015
16 oz pour on draft at National Pastime in National Harbor. Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of banana, yeast, herbs, lemon citrus. Tastes of banana, yeast, herbs, spice, wheat, lemon citrus. Medium-light body with a dry finish. ABV is superbly hidden and doesn’t drink like a 9.5% beer.

jamestulloch (1858) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of honey, straw and star anise. Flavour is very sweet - verging on Barley Wine territory. Notes of honey, spices and a peppery finish. Flavour of salted orange. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Lively fizz. A nice beer, but a bit too sweet for me.

Arcadia (61) - DeLand, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Draft from Half Wall. Pours a hazy gold with a thin head and minimal lacing. Aromas are spice & herb, with a very similar taste. Some booze on the finish; nice and full bodied, pretty oily. Acquire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of yeast, banana and spices. Clean subtle flavors highlighting the yeast, and spices. Finishes dry, warming with a lingering sweetness. This is one of my favorite American tripels and a beer that I come back to again and again.

Did not like this at all. Weird combination of spices produces a strange bubblegum taste.
