Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Golden tan, straw yellow with a foamy 1 inch head, and tons of sticky lacing.

Smell - Floral hops, Belgium yeasts, orange, coriander, peppery spices, grapes, plums, classic tripel bubblegum aroma.

Taste - First sip has a load of grapes, some orange and pineapple, mixed with some Belgium yeasts. Smooth, floral fruits with a nice amount of yeasty sweetness. Nice banana/lemon flavor so common in tripels. Added spices give a pepper note along with slight alcohol in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Floral hops and sugars coats the tongue. Palate gets more fruits, along with sugars and spices. The aftertaste is fruity, peppey and tart.

Overall - Really nice American brewed Belgium tripel. Has great flavor, smooth and easy to drink. Not to sweet, strong or even too warm from the alcohol. Nice beer, worth a drink for sure.

355ml bottle poured into tulip 25/9/13 thanks BINGEBOT for the bottle

A clear golden yellow with lots of tiny suspended particles being moved around by bubbles of all sizes and speeds, a finger of foam sits for a few sips leaving some random spots of lace

S coriander, peppery spice, dry cereal and faint banana, a little bubblegum, clove, yeast, orange peal and booze, smells like a triple

T a little candied pineapple and much more spice then the nose, other then that everything I smells more or less there just a little toned down

M slightly syrupy, enough bubbles to please, a little heat, spice lingers on the finish

O went down with ease and pretty solid beer, less spice and I think this one would be great

I'd drink this again if available in my neck of the woods at the right price, worth a try for sure and for spice lovers this one might tickle your fancy
