From tasting notes. Perfumy, flowery, peach, fruit, citrus nose. Pours brilliant deep amber under a 3” finely bubbled persistent foam cap that leaves thick lace. Yeast driven fruity palate – large pitted fruits with touches of citrus on a light malt backbone with a hop accent on the finish. A hint of cardamom and herbs. Medium body and medium to medium low carbonation.

From bottle at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Not the best triple I've had but not bad. I'm a big Belgian fan & this lacks the balance to the sweet side that I anticipated. I'd like to find it on tap to be sure.

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden color to it. It has a nice thick white head that dies down moderately and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of floral notes, apples, grapefruit, slight citrus, Belgian yeast, cloves and coriander.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a tone of floral notes, apples, some tropical notes of grapefruit, citrus and lemon, fruit punch, Belgian yeast, some cloves and light coriander.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.

Serving type: bottle
