3.8/5  rDev +1.1%

About three fingers worth of white rocky head with a pale yellow gold color. Not much to the smell, a bit of pale malt and maybe some faint spices. Taste is better than the smell would suggest. A pale bready malt backbone with sweet fruits, Belgian yeast, and a spicey finish. Medium body, high carbonation. Overall maybe not the best Tripel, but it is very refreshing on a hot day.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Real light color, almost pinot grigio white, but fills the glass with a nice lemon orb glowing color, and an opaque appearance. Nice small rising column of carbonation in the middle, with a nice matching bright white rocky head. THick hard top with shampoo like retention and hanging on long.

Mild subtle aroma. Not much sweetness or hints of hop or much of anything. Mild bread yeast dough, maybe some honey but that's about it.

Mouthfeel off the bat is what I first notice on first sip. Big and heavily carbonated. Lots of quinine tonic water like feel and aromas. A bit gaseous. Body is really not big and thick enough to support this and it becomes distracting. Some spicy notes and warm malts with classic honey sucrose action in the mid palate.

Overall not bad, but the big carbonation on this really took down my enjoyment of it quite a bit.

interesting beer here, the hop heavy side of belgian brewing. very pale pour, almost white, frosted wheat color, some yeast clouding it up, but heady and as lacy as any beer. huge snow drifts of foam on the edges of the glass the whole way. the nose has a little hops to it, not much bitterness, but a light fruity thing happening. the base beer is light, amazing its as strong as it is, hard to get that from it. its got the classic belgium green bottle skunk to it, i don't know why they all keep using them, but its off a little from that and its not old. light malt base, i have to believe there is wheat in this, probably some belgian pils too. the yeast is light. not as ester heavy as others, but picks up where the hops leave off, drying it right out. its shockingly strong for how light it is, but not as hoppy as i expected at all. its real simple, elegant beer, but the stale green bottle thing is a killer for me. i can see this being amazing on tap at the brewery.

A: The beer is slightly hazy light yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high bright white head that took a long time to die down and consistently left a short head covering the surface and thick lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of peppery spices are present in the nose along with some hints of yeast.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out somewhat spicy and seems to transition to notes of pale malts and hints of alcohol. The spices reappear and linger through the finish.
M: It feels quite dry on the palate and not that heavy (a light- to medium-body is perceived) because a high amount of carbonation seems to lighten things up. The spiciness seems to prickle your tongue a little.
O: By the taste of alcohol, you can definitely tell that this beer is strong, but the high amount of carbonation helps to lighten up the body and make this a little more in the way of being drinkable.

So... This beer is pretty wild. And confusing. Pours the cloudy blonde shade with a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. The smell isn't too aggressive. Citrusy hops but with minimal presence. The taste is more impressive. Sleek and crisp hops that cut your palate like a finely sharpened samurai sword. Minimal finish but it isn't terminal, at least in this case. A good beer that really makes minimal sense. All I know is.... this is not a tripel. If I was calling it anything I would call it Belgian strong pale ale. But it might not even be that exactly with this weird hop character. THe GF is pickin up white wine and I think that makes sense especially considering the crispness of the hops. A distant cousin of a refined dry riesling with extensive carbonation and hop character. Whatever I give up. Cheers.
