12oz into a pint

A - Pours a golden color. Bright white head formation, breaks down to a film quickly. Light amount of bubbling.

S - Some grainy pilsner malts, some light belgian esters, a little bit spicy with coriander. Overall muted.

T - Starts off lightly sweet, smooth and malty. Some pilsner grainy malts sneak in. Belgian yeast, lightly fruity -some spice. Citrus builds as it warms. Finishes clean with a little more biting graininess. Overall, ends up dry.

M - Full bodied, moderate carbonation. Tends towards the hefty and sticky side. Alcohol warmth is well hidden.

O/D - A good tripel. ABV isn't too high and its not overly filling. Can't argue against the price point. The dry graininess is a little much for me.

I tend to favor Belgium style beers so I love this one! I love the golden color and the slightly sweet, yet full-flavor that this beer offers. I found it very easy drinking, but you do have to be careful of the 8.3%, it will sneak up on you! I have tried a few other beers by Great Divide, so far they have not let me down.
