2009 - Poured into a New Belgium - for want of a more accurate description - footed burgundy - agggghh there I said it a Wine term - okay I feel better now.
Wow! I am not a fan of trippels but this was tasty and less funky than some that I have tried. Smooth and slightly tart. No Belgian style funk ala Duvel but tasty and briskly refreshing. Helped wash the taste of helping my son with his CBA homework out of my mouth.
Okay - by the numbers Gorgeous, pale, clear yellow gold color, like new straw, wih a blindingly white, crisp and tightly knit white head.
Smell was fresh and clean, no hint of alcohol, some malt minimal floral hoppiness.
Taste was smooth and unpretentious. Some doughy malt some fruity yeast and some muted but balanced hopping.
Mouthfeel was not overly thick nor watery, nicely done, almost pilsner-like.
Drinkability, can I glom something from my kids texting? OMFG this is a smooth drinkable trippel that you could drink far into excess before you knew what hit you. I will buy mor, I will drink, Iwill obey...

Had on tap at O'Hare airport out of a wine glass. It poured a pretty auburn-orange, really nice appearance. The nose had notes of nuts, spices, and yeast. The flavor was similar, but stronger than the nose let on. Not usually a huge Goose Island guy, but this is a good one.

From a bottle into a pilsner glass. 5/21/14 is the date
A: the best part about this beer. It's a golden orange color with a thin layer of thick head and whisper lace on the glass
S: slight aroma or hops and orange peel
T: follows the smell right down to being slight.
M: light on the tung. I can see this being great on a hot day
O: a bit disappointed with this one. With the reputation goose island's rare and mainstream beers has. I was hoping the less popular would still be really good.
