Reviewed from notes. Poured from 22 oz. bottle into a Russian River goblet.

A: Pours a nice gold color, with some haziness apparent plus some chill haze. Forms a one finger white head with low retention and a good bit of visible carbonation.

S: Fruity esters (banana, apple, grape), lemon citrus, pale malts, mild spices. Sweet and fruity overall impression plus a light boozy character.

T: Follows the nose. Big fruity yeast esters - bitter green apple and banana - with lemony coriander, light cracker and pilsner malts. Sweet with a moderately dry finish, and not overly boozy on the tongue at all.

M: Light body, medium carbonation sensation, and a low alcohol presence for style.

O: I wasn't overly impressed with this one. No real flaws, and a solid beer for the price point. But not what a Tripel can be.

New Belgium arrived in Florida yesterday. Welcome! I'm drinking this from a New Belgium tulip glass given to me more than 10 years ago by my nephew and his wife. Tonight is the first time it's held New Belgium beer.

Pours a lovely golden color with a stark white head than reduces to a chunk in my glass.

Classic Belgian aroma of yeast and coriander.

The taste is spicy and complex, just as I would expect.

Nice chewy body.

Overall a fine trippel. Glad to see New Belgium in the Sunshine State.
