Hand bottle via a growler thanks to hopdog. So based on Steves rating this beer was hand bottled via a growler over a month ago. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a large creamy off white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of pears, green apple, tripel spicy notes, pepper, bready pilsner malt and what seemed to me to be a healthy does of citrusy/floral hops. Flavor of bready malt, Tripel spicy notes, great yeast/fermentation flavors, apples juice, pears, pepper, candy sugar and some citrusy/floral notes. So not only did this bottle last the growler fill and hand bottling...heck it even still have yeast drop out and sticking around on the bottom of the bottle! Thanks Steve. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2009

Growler acquired in trade with Beerman6686 (Growler Swap) - thanks! Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of bananas, fruitiness, some yeast, and spices. Tastes of bananas, the same overall fruitiness (apples), spices, and some candi sugar sweetness. Alcohol content hidden. A solid, American made, Tripel. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Pours a nice golden color with a white head. Aroma was filled with spices, cloves and banana with a nice yeasty character. Flavor was a bit subdued, but not watery just really drinkable and hid the alcohol very well. A great Tripel.

On tap at the Winking Lizard downtown Cleveland and served in a tulip. This beer poured a dark amber with a thin head of off-white foam that quickly disappeared. Not much lace. The aroma of the beer was made up of orange peel, some caramel, spicy yeast esthers, and a whiff of alcohol. The flavor was much the same with some additional pepper and clove. Mainly lightly bitter orange peel and caramel. The mouthfeel was full-bodied and tongue coating. Light carbonation. A pretty nice tripel. Jvittorio4187 (255) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2008

Draft at Maxs taphouse. Tap list said 10% abv. This thing burned a bit on the way down. Aroma was sweet and spicy with a touch of yeast. Flavor was nice. had alot of spice and sweetness to it, but the alcohol bit on the end was a bit rough. over all this was a good offering nimbleprop (8761) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 18, 2008
