Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint, but that's what was available. Moderately aggressive hand. Dated 07Apr14.

A: 4.0 Cloudy, golden yellow body. 1 finger or so of fairly clean, white head. Ok retention. Minimal lacing.

S: 4.0 Musty yeast with earth notes. Citrus-forward, floral hops. Lemon. Orange blossom. Apricot. Candi sugar. Grass. Honey.

T: 4.0 Hop bitterness kicks things off, but a yeasty, tropical fruit sweetness builds quickly. Vanilla. Occasional hint of cherry in addition to the fruit noted in the nose. The yeast and pale malt fade away to a mostly dry, hop-fueled finish. Alcohol is present, but light for 9% ABV. Lingering citrus fruit and hops in the aftertaste.

M: 4.0 Moderate carbonation, relatively low for a triple, but smooth and accompanied by a medium body. Not a typical tripel feel. More like an IPA. Solid feel.

O: 4.0 Nice well-rounded, well-constructed brew. Over-hopped tripel vs Belgian-mellowed IPA. Straddles a few genres. I can attest that this drinks well in warmer weather, but I suspect it would also be nice in the colder months.

Prost!

12 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled on 4/10/2014. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, banana, pear, apple, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, cracker, bread, candi sugar, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus hops, and pale malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of lemon, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, banana, pear, apple, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, cracker, bread, candi sugar, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, tangerine, apricot, banana, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus hops, and pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is great, Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent tripel style. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus hops, and pale malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
