Can shared. Pours hazy gold color with white head. Aroma is sour, fruity, yeast and booze. Tastes like a tart, sour green apple, with a sweet aftertaste. The sweetness increases the more you drink. It’s too sweet for my taste. Not my favorite.

Straw yellow color, hazy, medium head, bubbly, nice lacing.
Smells of spices. Cloves, peppercorn, yeast, corn molasses.
Taste followed the nose somewhat. Sweeter taste than a traditional tripel. The combination of spices, esters and carbonation gives this the mouth feel and taste of a sparkling cider.
Don't know how I feel about this beer. I thought it was refreshing, tasty and satisfying but I didn't feel as if I was drinking a Belgian tripel. The flavor profile was closer to a hefeweizen. Short of the grape must this beer tasted pretty darn close to DFH Midas touch. Nice summer time brew, I guess.

Misc.: N/A

Poured a golden, straw, semi-hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head. No bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass initially, but then came up after a few sips. Sporadic spots of foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.75)

Smelled banana, cloves, sugary Belgian spices, kiwi, green grapes, faint all-spice, honeycomb and light cinnamon. Nice on the nose. (Smell - 4.13)

Tasted real close to the nose, but better in all aspects. Very nice. The sugary sweet Belgian spices dominated here. Also cloves, banana, green grapes, kiwi, caramel, all-spice and sugary honey notes. (Taste - 4.25)

Medium body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Long, astringent finish. (Feel - 4.13)

This was a very good Tripel. I wish I had a 6-pack. (Overall - 4.13)
