3.38/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Golden color, lacking head, slight white ring around glass from carbonation.

S: Fruity nose, little hops, some wheat as well.

T: A fruity, berry taste, a bit tart though, followed by a medium level wheat taste that is alright.

M: Smooth, but with a dry.

D: Sweet, but not too bad, ABV is kind of high more than a couple.

Overall: Minnesota Tan is a good Belgian Tripel worth trying. I liked the color and appearance and smell. The taste was a bit tart, perhaps too much berry flavor, but the wheat followed nicely. Not bad at all, but not great either.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a hazy orange brown with very little head, though it maintains a collar. Small spots of lacing are left behind.

S - Tart fruit is prominent in the aroma, along with some Belgian yeast and a bit of banana, spice and bread.

T - Interesting. Again, lots of tart fruit that I am assuming is lingonberry. Also a bit of lemon and banana, with Belgian yeast, bread and faint spice. Definitely a twist on the traditional triple, but actually pretty tasty.

M - Medium mouthfeel with a nice, dry tartness and a faintly earthy finish.

O - The tartness really made this enjoyable on a hot day. I don't know that I would seek this out, but it is a nice twist on the style and I'm glad I tried it.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Yamar68, pours a cloudy golden orange color with a small white head that quickly recedes to a small white ring, tiny bubble lacing.

Smell is immediate citrus, lemony, yeast, spicy.

Tastes tart up front (lingonberries?), sweet tart berry, some toasty bread, slight maltiness to balance the tartness, not picking up any alcohol for an 8.5%

Mouthfeel is tart dryness with a silky finish, medium bodied, crisp bite.

Overall really digging this, out of the Belgian Tripels I've had, this one is right at the top…better than I could have imagined. This is a must try. Thanks again Bennett!

Poured from bottle to pokal:

Pours a bright, glowing gold with constant beading. A short lived white head swells briefly with the pour, sinking back to a thin cap.

Lots of smooth, fresh tartness. Sour grapes, yeast and clean grain.

Very unique beer. Sort of drinks like a berry infused Belgian golden. Unavoidable tart finish.

Nice summer beer. Much enjoyed this one.
