Had it on tap at the Perch in Chandler, AZ on 29 Jun 2014.

A - Deep golden to orange color. Clear. The head is white and forms a thin sheet, along with a thick ring around the glass. Thick lacing.

S - Aroma of sweet, bready malt and alcohol dominate everything. There is a faint vegetal note that reminds me of iced tea out of a restaurant dispenser that hasn't been cleaned properly.

T - Far too sweet. Not much malt in flavors. There are plenty of honey and sugar-like notes. Some fruit from yeast. Cloyingly sweet finish.

M - Full body. Creamy carbonation. Huge, boozy alcohol presence. Hops bitterness is not noticeable.

O - Unbelievably sweet and cloying. I can't believe this is what the brewer intended this beer to taste like. Maybe this batch had unusually poor attenuation? This is not like any tripel I've ever had. Only a hummingbird could enjoy this sugar and booze bomb.
