Growler from Martha’s Exchange, NH. Poured a nice golden with a finger’s worth of off-white head. Greeted by bananas, cloves, and a yeasty aroma up front. Smells like there is a little sour hiding in there as well. Taste follows the aroma nicely - a little sour, a lot of yeast, and some nice sweetness at the edge. The mouthfeel is light and bubbly with a quick and dry finish. Overall, this is a really nice tripel. If you happen to be at the Exchange when it is available, pull a glass.
Big alky flaovrs from the start. Sweet perfume aroma. Yes, alky in yer face, needs aged er something. Difficult at times. Some cloying medicine. Fer sure you know this is 9%, a little uncivilized, almost like a barley wine. Not as civilized as the real trppels. johnnnniee (4405) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 20, 2014
On tap today at the source.
According to the waitress, they changed the keg which delayed my enjoyment of this brew. Hazy lemony straw color with a decent sized off white head. Aromas of light sugar, banana and clove with a rich sweet maltiness. The flavor follows the aroma. rich bready sweet almost honey like maltiness with some spicy yeasty esters and a warming alcohol note. Very flavorful brew, I quite enjoyed this. mcox90 (2119) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 2, 2014
On tap at the source, served in a snifter. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Candied fruit and sugar on the nose with hints of spice and yeast. Sweet flavor, perhaps to sweet. Smooth palate, goes down real easy. Alcohol is well hidden. I though it was pretty good. phaleslu (10553) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Pour from a growler at RBWG. Pours a gold color with a small white head. Notes of bready and sweet malts, sugars, a lot of dried fruits, faint spice, and booze. The nose has a hint of cheese. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, malty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. So-so tripel. GT (10002) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 12, 2014

>> Clear orange pour, bubbles, no head. Nose is sweet apple, pear, sugar, flash of acetone. Taste is sugar, brown banana bread, headache inducing sweetness. Bleh, I just hate these types of beers now so forgive me.
Growler at RBWG. Pours gold with white head. Nose is off - a bit of upchuck, apple and lemon. Taste is good though. light spice, lemon and alcohol soaked fruits. Medium body. deyholla (12031) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Growler at RBWG 2014. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains and grass with a light spice and light fruit note. Flavor has earthy but sweet grains with light fruits and light spice underlying. b3shine (9072) - Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Growler to snifter (shared by jcwattsrugger at RBWG). Looks good for the style; a cloudy golden orange with white lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast with a sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a bit of clove and banana as well. Average on the palate. Not bad. Ferris (16296) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Draft - Smells bad, meaty and some say vomit. Color is hazy golden with a thin head. Taste is much better with banana esters and some spice. big flavors and mouthfeel. Nose gets better after 20 minutes and smells as it should.
