Poured from the growler into a tulip glass.

A body of brass yellow slight orb glowing but a fourteen carat gold appearance. Rising cola large bubble carbonation. Head is white and tight but only grows so large. No lacing at all.

Nose is mild small candi sense, and malt. A standard tripel but also not particularly boozy either. Looking for a little more action here but this is alright.

Taste brings small apple sweetness, a mix of honey and sugar, gentle palate feeling. Texture brings some light malt and hint of little alcohol.

Overall pretty basic for a tripel but still a solid beer and enjoyable.

Thanks to FTB and JennieB for bringing a growler of this beer to our tailgate. Nothin' like the smell of tripel in the morning.

A: The tripel has a a darker golden hue, dark and full enough to be opaque. A finger of head was generally unremarkable.

S: The nose is sweet, laiden with this candi sugars and Belgian yeast. Pale malts peak through, as does a pretty heavy load of alcohol.

T: The body follows the nose with plenty of sweet candi sugars and yeast-driven fruit. Pale malts struggle to keep up. Behind the initial flavors, the alcohol lies in wait, pouncing with a vengeance in every sip. The alcohol is strong, almost a dominant partner in the tripel.

M: The tripel starts well before getting too hot. The flavors aren't quite fusel but they come close.

D: Only 8.5%? This one feels like a 10%+ behemoth. The tripel needs to be approached lightly or else it will beat you up.

a: This was a cloudy straw colored yellow. It was served to me with a one inch frothy white cap.

s: Big aromas of candied sugar and some mild peppery spices. There is a little estery banana here as well.

t: Very sweet candied sugar dominate this one. There is a little peppery clove and some banana as well. The perfumed heat came on pretty strong.

m: Beautiful velvety body and lush carbonation.

d: Not bad, but too sweet for me.

Hazy light orange color with a fine creamy head that dies down and leave a bit of lacing.

Spicy nose with coriander, citrus and toast. Similar flavors with an overall chalky character. A bit heavy - not at all bright or sparkly like some tripels.

Full bodied with very light carbonation. Overall, this tripel seems to be bogged down in its size a bit. Tasty enough and a good foil for the soft pretzel with spicy mustard.
