Draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy yellow color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of sweet bready malts, tart fruits and a spicy finish. The taste is sweet malts, bitter hops, spices and herbal notes. Medium bodied. gringo332 (645) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2012
The aroma is a spicy and fruity assortment of clove, pear, peach and white pepper. Full-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is fruity & lightly spiced with a decent hop kick. Finishes with sweetness that was a little overwhelming. ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2012
I almost didn’t buy a glass of this - the sample I had at the bar tasted like a cross between a wheat beer and cough syrup. But I’m giving it a shot anyway... just because I’ve had everything else available at Flying Saucer San Antonio. djd07 (15657) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2012
It has a solid, medium-orange color and a dense, bright white head that reminds me a little of frothy egg whites. Its aroma is unique, but good... a slight perfume that’s almost floral shoves its way into the nose, then continues to decorate with a sweet, alcoholic, almost cherry-like alcohol stickiness. It’s a really nice bouquet, actually.
In the mouth... not as fun. It has a very smooth and practically silky mouth feel, but that’s where the smoothness stops. It’s flavor is a little awkward, and almost uncomfortable. I will admit that the beer is well-brewed and very interesting, but it’s just too weird for me and not really that great of a drinker. There’s an unmistakably oat or wheat-like undertone to the beer that’s a little excessive, and a slight sour or astringent resulting finish combines with the almost cough syrup-like alcohol and fruit character to cause me to make some serious inner and outer faces. Sorry, Avery... but sometimes you can mess a good thing up.
On tap at The Hay Merchant. Pours a clear yellow with small frothy white head. The aroma is a floral hop and yeast. Thin mouthfeel with a light fruity malt and yeast and light dry finish. A good tripel from Avery.

The aroma is yeasty, spicy, malty, and fruity. The appearance is cloudy gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is a good beer but not great. Palidor19 (3194) - Brandon, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2012

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma of bubblegum and spices with hints of grass and light fruits. Bready flavor with more bubblegum and spices. Slightly bitter and grassy finish with a hint of alcohol. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Very handsome pour, deep golden with a bit of flaking detectable and a lustrous head to it. Soft floral hops in the nose but mostly ripe stripes of yeast and a bundle of dry herbal additions. Nice nose but fairly perfunctory as per most American renditions I suppose. Playful mouthfeel, taste is mostly a bit sweet although some grass and spice in the finish. Comes across as fresh and clean but the taste was just average overall. savnac (2656) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 6, 2012
22oz bottle. Hazy golden yellow with a small, fizzy, white head that quickly vanishes to nothing. Aroma is zesty Belgian yeast, citrus and sugary/honey malt. Flavor is spicy up front with sweet sugary malt, light musty yeast and some alcohol. Medium body with prickly carbonation. Solid beer for the style, not overly sweet.
