Bottle 113 of 360

Appearance: Pours a hazy apricot color with a modest head that quickly fades to a film; decent lacing action

Smell: The honey comes through in the aroma, with tart stone fruit elements

Taste: Doughy malts, up front, with a touch of honey but by mid-palate, a sour vinegar flavor takes over; very tart through the finish, with flavors of orange pith

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I am being generous with my scores as this beer has not aged well; I note the last reviewer picked up the sourness as did I but nobody before has commented on that aspect

22oz bottle (291/360) served in a snifter.

L - clear orange/copper color with a thin white head that became a thin ring.

S - slight vinegar, white grapes and pear.

T - I'm getting the vinegar along with a pear flavor, there's honey in here?

F - medium bodied with very mild carbonation.

O - maybe this was oxidized(?) but it was drinkable and quite different.

Served in a snifter

A - It is a hazy golden color. A center pour yields minimal off white head.

S - I get some pear and lighter fruit.

T - The pear theme continues. I get no spice or much else. It is not overly complicated.

M - Moderate and very smooth

O - It is not spicy or over the top. It is simple and very good. I could drink this anytime.

consumed on 7/5, while I was "on Hiatus." big thanks to marty30 for the amazing extra!!! enjoyed from my jackie o's tulip.
Bottle #9/360

a - brew poured a transparent orange with a minimal fizzy bubbly head. The head was gone quick hardly leaving a skin of tiny bubbles. lacing is minimal but leaves spots here and there. doesn't look the hottest for a tripel.

s - nice belgian yeast. honey is also evident on the nose. smells rich and thick.

t - again, belgian yeast candiness. honey is there.

m - rather thick and rich. not syrupy, but not far from it...

o - overall, clearly an american take on a belgian classic. few american brewers capture the nuances of the belgian styles like the originals. when they do you can't tell the difference. this brew is clearly an american take. it is not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but if you are looking for classic, look elsewhere...if you are looking for something a bit richer and thicker with a honey twist, then this beer is calling your name!!! overall, good for an american take.
