Thanks to Jaxson53 for my Capt. hook-up. Light honey color with crystal clearity. Thick frothy head lingers, great retention. Carbination from stem pours up.
Aromas pour out as soon as bottle was opened. Distinct Belgian yeast aromas, slight sour, clove, some sweet malt, and suttle hop aroma.
Delicious Belgian yeast flavors blend with classic clove and spices. Hops make a big push with slight sweet citrus character, some bitterness,and slight floral tones. Backed by a strong sweetend malty backbone. Some sour tones hang around throught drink.
Medium body thats solid and refreshing. Clean, fresh mouthfeel with only slight yeasty notes lingering.
Quality craft brew from the Capt. Fresh and clean characters aid in the enjoyment of this brew. Great twist with the additions of amarillo hops and increased sweet malts. Great to see brewers taking there craft to outter boundaries. Can't wait for distribution to Massachusetts.

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.
Serving type: on-tap
