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.

A- It pours a slightly hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Head retention is great, and lacing is excellent.

S - Banana, and lots of it, also a touch of bread.

T- Banana, Corriander, light bread notes.

M- Medium bodied, moderate carbonation.

O- Pretty damn good.

12oz. bottle poured into a chalice.

A- A beautiful clear gold, with a thin white head that dissipates quickly, but leaves a nice faint lacing.

S- stone fruit, mostly peaches, and a dose of flowers and honeydew. Some mild booze.

T- Belgian yeast (sweet, follows the nose), and a mild hop bitterness up front. Malt is very mild, crackery in nature. Some mild spice from the coriander is present. Mild booziness and heat, but 8.5% is fairly well hidden.

M- light to medium, sweet and slightly dry on the finish.

T- Certainly a straightforward and excellent example of the style.

In my Colorado years this was one of my top few favorites. A dependable strong brew with a tangy taste. I never thought of this as yeasty, and it's a more refined style. Golden and clear in the tall Maredsous glass with a thin head but nice champagne bubbles. Plenty carbonated in the mouth.

It seems kind of sweet on first sip. The spices are a little overly strong. A malt candy flavor. The best feature is how smooth and drinkable this is. It's the ideal late evening sipping glassful. Seamless is the word that comes to mind, even with the alcohol taste.

From the 12 oz bottle bought at-- who cares, you can buy this everywhere. They do a good job of distributing. But I've never seen this on tap, which would be worth watching for. New Belgium makes this the cleanest, most approachable beer in the golden Belgian style.
