look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

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.

Thirsty Dog Cerberus

Poured in tulip glass

A: Pours a deep rusty orange color with some sediments.

S: Pears, apples and maybe touch of honey. Has a familiar slight funky Belgian yeast aroma to it as well.

T: Sweet and sugary. Maintains the common flavors I've found and still can't quite get used to in the trippels I drank. A hint of alcohol on the end too.

M: Smooth.

O: I like this but not enough to search for it again. For me it's another go round with a style I'm trying to wrap my head around. Not bad . . . I'd drink again if offered.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A-an orangish golden color with a fingers worth of white head that leaves a bit of foam around the edge

S-pale malts, spices, lemon and a bit of orange

T-pale malt, apples and pears with some bubblegum sweetness, honey, light spices, and some yeast

M-medium body, medium carbonation

Overall an enjoyable beer, but maybe a little to sweet for me
