Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy golden amber with a half finger fine white head with great retention and lots of lacing. Classic tripel aroma of bready malt, clove, mildly grassy, hints of lemon and light stone fruit, dry and spicy. Flavor is mild bready, slightly caramel malt, clove, light fruit juice, Belgian yeast, hints of lemon and hay, nicely integrated; finishes with light hoppiness, pepper and Belgian yeast and spices, residual semi sweet fruit. Medium bodied with peppery carbonation. A wonderfully understated tripel, seems mild at first as you try to tease out the flavors, but nothing really jumps out, because everything is so well balanced; the big clove and coriander burst common to tripels is not here, just these flavors melded into the fruit and yeast. Complex and satisfying, possibly the best tripel I've ever had.

Pours very carbonated. with a bright white foamy head that sticks to the glass as it dissipates.

Smell is sweet, yeasty, with some faint hop presence. It also seems very crisp if you can imagine that, comparable to a dry champagne.

Taste is so delicious. This has to be the most drinkable Tripel I have ever had. Again, there is carbonation, yeasty overtones with a slight sweetness but not overpowering in the background. Crisp and somewhat chalky, bubblegum sweetness. What I really like is that fact that this beer is not too sweet like some Tripels are. This beer reminds me of Mischief by the Bruery, very similar and also fantastic.

I look forward to drinking more beers from this brewery.

750ml bottle, with a paper wrap in place of the standard label.

This beer pours a rather cloudy, medium tarnished golden apricot hue, with a teeming tower of frothy, melted marshmallow eggshell white head, which leaves some random chunky, fuzzy lace around the glass as it slowly disappears.

It smells of muddled light orchard fruit, Belgian yeast, grainy pale malt, candy sugar, white pepper, and zippy floral, earthy, and grassy hops. The taste is semi-sweet pale malt - with a touch of caramel - earthy yeast, an apple and pear fruitiness, simple sugar solution, clove and white pepper spice, and more edgy earthy, weedy, and floral Euro-hops.

The carbonation is active, for certain, but really not manifesting in anything more aggressive than a plucky frothiness, the body on the light side of medium weight, and generally quite smooth, with more than a suggestion of creaminess. It finishes off-dry, the hops still providing stiff opposition to the malt and well-obfuscated alcohol.

An easy-drinking Tripel, if there was ever such a thing - the hops help even out this style's inherent sweetness, and the booze just isn't that hot (and I mean that in a very good way). Quite a healthy (figuratively speaking) serving, too, for just north of a tenner, and something nice to sip on, for a cold Saturday night.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down and consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: The smell is a little chalky and has light aromas of fruits along with notes of yeast.
T: Like the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of Belgian yeast along with notes of chalk and slight bits of pepper.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little creamy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is not your typical tripel and tastes more like a chalky version of a saison.

101 Beer Kitchen July beer club pick. 22oz bottle.

Appearance- Two finger white head slowly reduces to a retained creamy top. A cloudy golden orange with high carbonation.

Smell- Mango, bread. Not able to dissect the pleasant aroma further.

Mouthfeel- Soft & silky. Only a tingle of the fruit. Not too sugary.

Taste- Banana bread with a backing citrus fruit effect that works vs. obvious fruit. Aftertaste is satisfying.

Overall- Malt/hop/sugar blend works well to create a steady body wth flavor that delivers throughout. Nothing too challenging though.
