A- Pours a hazy golden-straw color with a thick 2 1/2 finger head that eventually diminishes to a thick sheet of foam, leaving splotchy lacing down the side of the glass.
S- Spicy and yeasty, as per the traditional Belgian style, with a surprising hoppy aroma with hints of pine.
T- Spicy with a unique Belgian-style hop profile, however a unique piney kick is present as well. Spicy notes of Belgian spice and the discinct Belgian yeasty flavor comes through. A refreshing citrusy kick of lemon is noted in the aftertaste.
M- Fine carbonation with a crisp finish.
D- Clean and easy to drink. Overall, this is a very good tripel, however, CL has put out better beers.

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
