Appearance: amber, heady white froth, fine carbonation

Smell: slightly malty, pear, honey .

Taste: Sweet, flowery up front without being syrupy, pleasant astringent quality from very carbonation and mild hops.clean finish.

Overall: Very good, excellent example of the style. Would purchase again.

Pours a clear gold with huge dense tower of foam, settles slowly to a half inch that stays, with a thick sheet of styrofoamy lace down the glass. Smell: out of the bottle it was a little windex-y but thankfully that faded before the head... slightly boozy, apple cake, apple juice, coriander, thyme-y herbal note. Less sweet than most and a bit aggressive / astringent. Taste: unripe pear, soft apple, sugared dried apricot, and grape skin. This is nice, but then it's similarly oddly astringent, finishing with pepper and grassy notes. Medium bodied, finishes a bit slimy and sticky. Definitely different. I think I'd rate it higher if it was lower abv and not labeled 'tripel'...it's interesting.

On nitro tap at the Porter Bar (ATL). Served in a tulip.

Excellent and very fruity aroma.

Good flavor but doesn't quite keep up with the quality of the aroma. It's a bit too sweet until the mildly bitter and tart finish.

Light body. Little noticeable effect of the nitro.
