as a belgian tripel, hell no. better as an american strong ale, but this thing is all malt, way to heavy for the style, simple, and lacking any real belgian yeast character. its also a booze bomb and shows all of its 11% abv all the way through. i was so impressed with their wedge black ipa, and was staring to think they had it figured out, but this is an abomination as a tripel. caramel colored, it looks too dark and grain heavy, and the first sip shows that. its too sweet, too coppery, and lacking the wheat and oat nuance we love in the well made belgian ones. the yeast also seems like a pretty unexciting high gravity strain, no belgian brightness of feel, no fruity esters, not even the ability to dry out all the fermentables. its way off stylistically, but never mind that, i dont even really like it, its so grain forward and dull, and coupled with all the booze, its tough to drink, especially in warm weather. i had to dump out the second half of the bomber, it just wasnt appealing. i tried to like this beer, and i keep trying to life left coast, but their successes have to work real hard to cover for misses like this. short of a waste of grain, but could be seen that way by a harsher critic.
