3.91/5 rDev +5.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Poured from 750ml bottle into Chimay goblet.
A - Medium pumpkin/amber gold with a lacey white head.
S - Buttery, floral, sweet toasted bread.
T - Juicy orange, not peel, citrusy hops, herbal/floral finish.
M - Crisp, tart, refreshing.
A unique beer to be sure. The juicy citrus aspect was surprising but not unwelcome. There are notes of a Flanders red in there as well.

3.84/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance - light color with a nice white head that hung in there for about half the glass.
Smell - I did not get the smell of a triple, but it did have a distinctive floral scent. it was quite intriguing.
Taste - it had a slight sour note that I did not expect and the fruity notes did remind me of a triple that was lacking in the smell, or maybe my olfactory senses were not working very well this day.
Mouthfeel - the juxtaposition of the sour note and the fruity notes made for a very interesting mouthfeel. I was surprised and pleased at the same time.
Overall - I am torn between a 3.75 and a 4.00, but the taste and the mouthfeel won out and it will be a 4.00. After all, isn't that what makes up 80% of beer drinking - Taste and mouthfeel?
Serving type: on-tap
