Pours out a nice light golden color, it’s mildly hazy and is topped off with a nice thick white head that sticks around for a while. It has some nice lacing and plenty of carbonation. The aroma has a mixture of fruits, clove, coriander, peppers and a slight peanut smell too. Light and crispy, this is a medium bodied ale, the spices are nice and not overpowering, the coriander come out in the aftertaste. The malts are strong at first, but as it travels toward the back of your throat, it sweetens up just a little, it is dry overall. Not a bad ale and it goes down smoothly too.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a New Belgium globe glass.

Look: Light peachy copper color. A foamy white head leaves a light film with light lines of lacing.

Aroma: Slightly boozy up front, sweet bubblegum, malts, coriander.

Taste: Starts off a bit metallic but then a softer sweet malt comes in with a bubblegum taste laced with coriander, much like the aroma. A dryer hop finish.

Mouthfeel: Dry, boozy.

Overall: Decent, but the particular flavor of coriander is just too much. One bottle is enough.

A: A golden beer with excellent clarity and a rocky white head that leaves some lacing.

S: A nice spicy nose with aroma of pepper, coriander and some clove. There is a medium-low, light colored fruit ester like apricots and peaches. Some light herbal-like character. A low, floral alcohol aroma.

T: A smooth honey like malt sweetness blended with spice and fruit. There is a medium-low earth and spicy hops flavor and bitterness. The balance leans towards the sweet and malty side with a medium finish. Some spice in the aftertaste.

M: A medium bodied beer with a moderately-strong level of carbonation. A noticeable alcohol warmth.

O: Another excellently crafted, balance beer from New Belgium. It's on the lighter side of the Tripel style but still packs a lot of fruit, spicy flavor with a nice balance of sweetness that doesn't overwhelm.

Poured into a Chimay chalice. Pours to a medium white head that falls to a thin layer and light lacing (could be the dusty glass, sorry). Aroma is spicy coriander, intense fruit esters from the yeast, and sweet caramel. Flavor is melt-in-your-mouth honey and biscuits, spices, fruits and a balancing spice and bitterness to offset the intense sweetness but not enough to dry out the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth, warming and appropriate to style. Overall a very well made beer that is excellent for sipping.
