Poured at cellar temp into a snifter. The beer pours a clear copper hue with some blush highlights when held to the light. A bleached white surface layer of tightly packed head remains after a 2 cm foam up.
Tight lattice on the sides of the glass after each sip.
Aroma is white grape and some booze, mixed with candied sugar notes and general fruity sweetness. I think some black pepper is buried in there too.

First sip reveals an average body with fine fizzy carbonation, a sticky texture coats my lips after each sip.
Flavor is sweet and fruity with pears and white grapes and a dry black pepper finish with some hits of booze as well. A nice complex beer that is a good drinker considering the ABV.
A well made tripel if that is your thing. I enjoyed this beer and would buy another bottle.

Picked this up on a recent trip to Phoenixville, and purchased it direct from the brewery, so it should be quite fresh. The bottle bears a date stamp of 10/10/13.

There's a few clumps of sediment at the bottom of the beer, which is not surprising given that it is bottle conditioned. The cork pops off with a percussive thwop, allowing a bit of vapor to escape. The ale pours a luminescent golden honey amber color, with a bit of diffuse haziness and a minimal head that becomes a thin skim of wispy foam.

The aroma is fruity and sweet, with apple, peach and canteloupe smells mixing with a honey-floral sweetness that gives this some depth. Hints of banana and earthy malt are also present.

The taste is quite good; starts honey nectar sweet, with banana, honeydew melon, and kiwi, turning somewhat tangy as it reaches its finish. There's also a woody, grassy flavor mid-to-end sip that, for me, is the only real detractor from how this tastes.

Medium bodied, with a bit of a softer feel that is balanced by the tangy feel that alomst has a carbonated quality, though this does not appear to be a very carbonated beer. This tangy quality does start to dry out the tongue as you get further into the bottle.

A nice tasting tripel style beer, it is hard to believe this clocks in at 10.5% ABV. There's nothing in the taste to indicate this is a big beer; rather, its sweet and slightly fruity flavor could easily accompany a beer half as strong. Definitely worth a try if you can get your hand on this.
