3.83/5  rDev -5.7%

16 oz pint on tap at Little Town in Union Square.

Poured a very clear soft gold with almost no head. The lacing was disappointing as there was no retention on the glass.

Smell was not overly fragrant. Some citrus notes but mostly floral, grain, yeast, and clove.

The taste was surprising for a tripel. Lightly carbonated, some malt sweetness, that dash of clove but a generous heaping of hops up front (which was rather pleasant).

Quit enjoyable tripel. The 10% alcohol was barely evident. This is a well done hop forward beer that went down a little too easy.

4.05/5  rDev -0.2%

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Much thanks to DaSolomon.

This is easily the most clear tripel I've seen. Golden brass yellow, even with a touch of haze showing off a perfect middle column of rising carbonation in the middle, with green hue like edges as well. Big rocking white head with even pinhead bubbles throughout and lots of staying power. Real impressive looking beer.

Real unique nose. Candy like aromas of grass, but not in a Belgian sweet way. Airy and light with a bit of powdered strawberry. Clean. Solid, but doesn't give me the impression this is a tripel.

Palate fills with a crisp wine like refreshment. Almost too crisp in feel as it doesn't have much malt sweetness or dense body. Wine like green grape appeal, and a spicy character. Very hop forward for a tripel almost too much, and the hops actually dominate. Warmth kicks in with multiple sips but not an overpowering alcohol heat.

Overall this is a well made beer, but this isn't the ultimate tripel for myself. Wouldn't turn this down though for a second, and its an interesting take on the style.
