look: 2 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3
Pours an effervescent gold with a finger of fast falling pearl colored head. Zero head retention & lacing
S: Strong jammy notes apricots, over ripe pears & some boozeyness; great nose, about this beer's only good point
T: Pears, apricots, figs & some boozeyness up front, along with golden delicious apple skins. Tons of over-ripe orchard fruit, honey & just a general cloying sweetness as this warms, faint hints of pineapple as well. Finishes with passion fruit, over-ripe apricot & a kiss of booze
MF: Sticky, slight carbonation; skews too fruitty/malty for me. Some boozey warmth
Not a very good tripel, hard to get through a whole bottle. Duds are starting to become a little too common for this series. Come on New Belgium, I know y'all can do better...I wish we could get Funkwerks in Missouri...

Notes from the back of a coaster dated 12-4-13.
12 oz. tulip on tap at Ed's in Winona, MN. Hazy straw/orange color with a few white bubbles. Good lacing, but small white head.
Aroma is predominately fruity, mostly plum and apricot jam (as one could imagine). Mild funk and booze flavors. Pale malt along with a definitely spicy (mostly clove) yeast. Slight chardonnay type smell.
Flavor is fruit, alcohol, and sour. Apricot and plum are of course dominant as in the nose. Flavor is sweet but not cloying, and the alcohol is definitely noticeable but not overpowering.
Medium-bodied with good carbonation. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel.
Overall this is a beer that will scare most people away, but I loved it. Very, very complex with just enough funk to cut through the sweet fruitiness.
Serving type: on-tap
