This beer is made with one grain and 4 Belgian yeasts, a deceptive golden color, and a malty palate lend complexity to this Belgian Trippel Ale.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a semi-hazy dark amber color with nearly no head, just a paper-thin ring around the edge of the glass and minimal surface foam.

S- Sharp, boozy aroma of Belgian yeast. A bit of spice, some malt sweetness and maybe a hint of oxidation.

T- Flavor is considerably better than the aroma with a nice dose of Belgian candi sugar and some lightly toasty malt. Also some more spice and the alcohol starts creeping in after multiple sips are taken. Minimal hop bitterness.

M- Slick feel with some vibrance from the spice and alcohol. Medium-low carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Well this beer started out quite lame but made a quick turnaround. Certainly not one of the best Tripels I've ever had but it disguises the alcohol pretty well and has some nice character to it.

Poored from a 12 oz. bottle.

A - A pretty, deep orange. Very hazy. Half a finger of head which fades quickly and no lacing.

S - Pears, oranges, a sweet maltyness. Definitely some alcohol present.

T - Very sweet. Tastes like sipping on a white wine. Grape, pear, apples, with an alcohol finish. Any bitterness that is present is overpowered by the sweetness.

M - Light bodied. Good carbonation.

O - Decent beer, not my favorite though. I prefer more of the bubblegummy yeast flavors in tripels as well as a dry, bitter finish. This is a bit too sweet for my liking.
