No bottle date, but this is being opened about a year after purchasing. Poured into a snifter

A- pours a bright and slightly hazy golden color with a small creamy white head that reduces to a small layer, no lacing left behind. Not the typical big foamy head expected from the style

S- powdery belgian yeast gives subdued aromas of sugar candy, banana and clove, toasty malt with grainy notes, light phenolic note. All of the aromas are there, but seems to be held back

T- sweet malty notes up front with some belgian sugar, clove and sweet banana. Faint phenolic notes kick in before finishing slightly sweet with a hint of alcohol

M- medium body with low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish, just a touch of abv warmth at the end, alcohol is hidden well overall

O- Easy drinking triple, doesn't rival the world class example but worth a try

On tap at the Whole Foods in Vienna, VA

Poured a yellowish, slightly cloudy amber. Head is adequate, thin lacing

Smell is not pronounced, ok

Taste includes plenty of funk, the boozy alcohol expected from a 10% brew, but well balanced. Some banana and flora notes in the aftertaste

Overall a good example of the style

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A muted apricot orange, opaque, with lots of fast rising cola large bubbles at first. Settles to some slower carbonation along the edges. Head is creamy white makes only a bare two fingers tall, but settles to a creamy thin puck.

Nose has a nice spicy sense, with matching Belgian candy like sucrose. Clean, a little bit of fruit of apple and pear slightly. Fairly solid and good, some warmth gives some spritzy orange soda sweetness which is really nice.

A good solid palate. Nice rich orange fruit fills the mid palate with sensing sweetness of sugars. Wine like sort of character a bit, but the malts give a lot of depth. Not much aftertaste on the finish, with a moderate carbonated body. Good hint of booze but still in control.

Pretty solid go to tripel, I am not blown out of the water on this one, but it's worth a repeat visit and is pretty much to style.

Good American take on a Tripel. Poured into my Chimy goblet. Clear orange color. Minimal delicately bubbly white head with average retention. Little lacing.

Big aroma of light fruit...apples/pears/apricot and Belgian yeast

Flavor is solid as well. Rich, fruity, plenty of yeast presence

Mouthfeel is rich and smooth. No alcohol presence beyond a little warming.

Well worth trying...more than once.
