12 oz. bottle, with bottled on date April 16, 2014 printed on the back label. A new tripel style beer from Goose Island. Acquired a single bottle of this from the local beer store.

Poured into a Coca-Cola goblet.

A - Pours a cloudy golden orange colored body with about two fingers of fluffy creamy off-white head with pretty nice staying power for the high abv. Not terribly unique, but it looks very nice.

S - Nose is pretty nice for the style - banana, clove, white pepper, earthy yeast, and some herbal fruity hop content - pine, grapefruit, orange, pineapple.

T - The nose is predominantly fruity, with a dry earthy yeasty finish. Pineapple, oranges / clementines, grapefruit, pine, clove spice, banana, citrus peels, lemongrass. Nicely flavored with a good hop bite.

M - The feel is super smooth, crisp, and creamy. Medium bodied with excellent carbonation. Dry, herbal, and hoppy on the finish.

Overall, a nice take on the style by Goose Island. Not exactly the most traditional, but very nice for what it is. The high 9.00% abv is well-masked, and the beer is super smooth and drinkable.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into chalice. Bottle dated 3/24/2014.

A: Pours an attractive light golden yellow with a very small off white head.

S: Lemon, grapefruit, and Belgian yeast. Some faint earthy funk.

T: A mix of citrus notes mixed with the bitterness from the hops. A little sweetness that reminds me a bit of banana and baked bread. When it was colder, there was almost a little sour and saltiness that seemed to dissipate as it warmed. As it was closer to room temperature, a bit of spices coming through.

M: Medium bodied with a steady stream of small bubbles that lasted for several minutes.

O: An interesting Tripel. Maybe not my favorite of the bunch, but easy drinking and refreshing.
