3.9/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A - Holy foam! Even a cautious pour yielded a good 3+ fingers of head in my oversize snifter. Body is a hazy golden/orange that glows like a lava lamp. A few minutes pass and the head is still not looking to leave any time soon.
S - The yeast is predominant, and I am regretting tasting this while coming down from a mild cold - I am having difficulty digging into the subtleties of the aroma. Some fruity aromas are in there from the hops... I'm really looking for some basil but no such luck. Maybe a little coriander.
T - Interesting. Herbal flavors are much more predominant than in the nose. There is a certain je ne sais quoi to it that is at the moment ineffable. Definitely spicey on the finish.
M - Tingly and highly carbonated. Otherwise smooth and delectable.
O - Tasty tripel with some very unique aspects

On tap at Hops & Pie in Denver; poured into a tulip.
Appearance - gold, clean with a medium white head that recedes quickly. Lacing is weak, but there.
Smell - mildly sweet with some citrus and ripe fruit.
Taste - some fruity sweetness, tartness and bitterness that hides the 8% ABV. Very tasty and incredibly refreshing!
Feel - balanced, with a light to medium feel. Very flavorful and easy to drink!
Overall - I love the style and this beer in particular, however for the price, I'd likely pass it over in my local bottle shop.
Serving type: on-tap
