Growler, courtesy of LordMaynard. Thanks, Russ! Pours a cloudy whitish-brown; fluffy off-white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Coriander and cloves and banana in the aroma; hints of pepper. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: bits of alcohol poking through; plenty of bananas and creamy esters; some pepper; lively carbonation. Medium, creamy and banana-y finish.

On tap at the brewery. Mild yeasty estery aroma. Honey, grain sweetness, light orange peel and blossom. Sweet sugary smell, too. Hazy golden amber with foamy lacing off-white head. Medium-light creamy body with light carbonation. Silky. Starts sweet with oranges and estery fruit notes. Light yeasty chalkiness. Sweet without being cloying. Very little bitterness. Good floral fruity notes at the finish. After is sweet with a chalky bitterness. Really true to style on this one. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Cloudy gold, with a white head. Aroma is spices, yeast, and fruit. Flavor is spices, yeast, and sugar. Some fruit, too. jredmond (8288) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2007 First re-fill on my Growler at the Brewpub. While waiting for the beer to fill I was reminded of how excellent the atmosphere at the brewpub is. Upon arriving back home, we opened the growler and poured a few glasses. It poured practically no head and the aroma was filled with some sort of fruit and slight hops. The flavor was actually smooth, with defining characteristics of tangerines and perhaps other fruits. Very nice and drinkable, the 8.5% acl content was not noticable in the taste, but we felt it later on. jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2006
first beer I ordered that night at brewpub: Fruit and yeast make there presence known in the aroma. I bit of citrus and a bit of banana. the beer was a deep gold with a cloud of yeast. The first sip was full of citus and banana taste with a lovely yesty sourness, and a little bit of a sweet touch from the candied sugar. Very good on the palate, coats the mouth. A fine tripel.

On tap at brewpub. Pours a cloudy deep gold, with a small very fine bubbled head. Very sweet fruity aroma, with lots of fruity esters. Banana, bubblegum, candi sugar, alcohol, and yeast all make themselves known. Very sweet and yeasty flavor, very robust with lots of candi sugar and a warming alcohol finish. Also a little banana and tangerine notes. Full bodied with a mouthfeel that is just short of syrupy. Extremely fine bubbled carbonation cuts thru the body some. Mouthcoating and lingering finish. A pretty nice Triple, very drinkable. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2005

Banana and pear esters fly above the mild alcohol protrusions. Wheat malt is suggested, or at least some other cereal than the typical barley. Smells like a pumped up weizen.
Important sweetness envelops the pear fruitiness. Yeast tingles with its creamy and sometimes chalky girth. Thick cereals blend efficiently with all surrounding flavors, but in the end it feels like a cross between a tripel and a weizen.
Versatility is overrated when one specific task is required.
On tap at the brewery. Golden pour with little head. Aroma of malts and spice. Medium palate with flavor of orange, spice, and yeast. Cove finish. A very nice Begian Tripel from an amazing brewery. Definately worth a stop.
