Pours a light golden straw color with a short dense white head that settled into a light ring.

The aroma is of the Belgian yeast. Light clove, bubblegum, juicyfruit and farmhouse funk. Spot on Belgian notes. A grassy bitterness in the finish.

The taste is a big yeasty blast. Nice clove and bubblegum. A bit of farmhouse. A dry pils malt provides the base for the beer. Some grassy hop bitterness in the finish. A bit sugary sweet but other than that hits the authentic style notes.

The feel is light and crisp. Sharp carbonation. Lightly sweet on the palate with a drying malt and grassy hop. Great balance. ABV well hidden.

Nicely made BPA from Goose. Authentic Belgian notes with an American hoppy twist. Very solid.

On tap at Granite State on tap.
Lightly hazy golden color with a minimal head. Fruity earthy spicy with a sweet bready malty sugary base and a hint of alcohol. a bit hoppy for a traditional tripel, but tasty just the same.
