St. Vrain Tripel

22 oz bottle from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Pour is a wheat, colored, light yellow hazed body. Head is disappointingly thin and lacks presence. Unfortunately this is a feature of the beer – a lack of depth and presence.
Lots of banana notes more than anything else. In fact, this almost seems like a banana, alcoholic cocktail! It certainly skates around the Tripel style, but to me it really feels quite thin. Alcohol is resent, but that’s OK becuase the style demands it, and to be honest given the 9.00% it seems quite manageable. There are some serious yeast notes in there as it should be, but this beer is really weak for me.
Thin in the mouth, the beer is ultimately disappointing to me. Not easy to drink considering the style is one of my favorites. One and done for me here. Sorry, but I just don’t like it much.
