On tap at Rattlen Hum, NYC. Not much under the nose or on the side of the glass but that's all cosmetic. The taste is just fine. None too sweet as some triples can be.

The nose is big fruit, some earthiness, and ripe large pitted fruit over dark sugars.
the beer pours copper tinted amber with a 2” off-white moussey foam cap that slowly recedes but rouses easily and produces Belgian window lace.
Big fruit flavors such as peach, grape and a hint of sherry supported by a light earthiness drive the palate, this is a yeast driven beer with balance towards the yeast driven fruit flavors more than the malt. The malt comes across like a light biscuit one might spread with a fruity marmalade with a light bitterness from the fruit rind. It shows up as a very light caramel in the aftertaste.
In this very creamy beer the carbonation is a little above average and the body is just a hair below.
