A - Pours a clear golden color with huge soapy white head. Excellent retention, lots of carbonation visible in the glass.
S - Unusual aroma, kind of a funky hoppy smell, with some sweetness behind it. Not bad, just different. A hint of alcohol sneaks in as well.
T - Citrus, spices, sweet malts, sour fruits. Very intriguing; not quite belgian, not quite an IPA.
M - A bit thin, well carbonated. Not much hint of the high abv.
D - Certainly a unique brew, with a distinct flavor profile that doesn't quite fit into any one category. I enjoyed it, though I usually don't enjoy the style.

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
