Fat Head's Head Trip

Another beer I ordered while at Fat Head’s in Pittsburgh was their own Head Trip, a tripel. The beer pours a pale golden color with a bubbly white head. The aroma consists of banana, pepper, thyme, and light lemon accents. The taste is dry and slightly bitter with lots of pepper and dry hops on the front end. The finish is sweetened with yeast and banana and the after taste is dry with pepper and grass. The alcohol content is 11.3% ABV. This was a great tripel, but take note that it is on the dry and bitter side rather than the sweet and yeasty side that most tripels adhere to.
