Pours from a 750 ml bottle into a teku glass. Bottled on 3/11/14.

Pours a golden, straw color with a white frothy head that dissipates very slowly. Great lacing around the glass and nice head retention.

Smells of sweet malt and old hops.

Tastes of bitter hops and sweet malt. Tastes like the hops has deteriorated significantky due to oxidation and the beer bot being fresh. However he flavor is actually quite delectable as it is reminiscent of pear cider. Yes. Really.

Mouthfeel is quite prickly on the tongue due to the high carbonation but very apropeiate for the style.

Overall, a pretty awesome brew despite the fact that it's almost 9 Months old. I would get this again in a heartbeat. Especially if I can get it fresh.

Cheers!

Smell of orange, sourness, spiced yeast and citrus.
Taste is sour orange, banana peels, hop, cloves and herbs. Crisp and fresh. High carbonation.
Short but fruity bitterness.
Very closed to a Belgian tripel. I'd even say it's an American tripel.
