another cool and distinct beer from cambridge. i like this one because its a little darker, a little more of a copper or amber malt vibe to the normal belgian style tripel. is hazy pale rusty orange in color with a short and short lived white head. the nose here is great, really oath and earthy, with plenty of candy sugar added. its real sweet in taste too, but not cloying or weird, it works with the denser grain bill and the belgian yeast thats as much abbey style as it is saisony, an odd but compatible hybrid of yeasts in flavor, with a little of that farm spice in the finish under the residual sugar. a lot of body to this too, which makes it a little more of a slow sipper, even though it has quite expressive carbonation. i like that its a bit of a different take, not super pale or light, i see it as better in cold than warm weather, but thats just my palate. cambridge has been putting out some really high quality stuff lately, and this is on par with the others, if not my palates first preference

This is the first time that I like the look of a beer more than the taste.
A- Golden orange with nice cloudy body. 2 fingers of frothy white head that laces very cleanly as you drink.
S- Traditional Belgian yeast smell: orange with a yeast and gum mix.
T- Orange, Gum and a hit of alcohol followed by spice.
M- Creamy and thick that lingers on the tongue and follows with a smooth feeling.
O- I like this beer. I'd gladly have it again.

Poured from the 750ml bottle into a Harpoon tulip glass
The color is a bright yellow/gold with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is sweet and has a great floral aroma that pops with a nice fruity nose. There is hints of apple peel, orange, and pear in the aroma with a touch of a Belgian character.
The taste is a bit yeasty with a grainy flavor that pops with some sweet malty flavor. The juicy fruit flavor here is delicious as some apricot, and apple flavor mixes with a tease of white grape. A nice tangy bitterness comes in and melds with the sweetness and is like a double edged sword as the flavor splashes into a poke of bitterness at the end.
The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a great drinkable feel that is a little dry but quite pleasing. It goes down easy and has some nice fruity esters that lingers only slightly after each sip.
