11.2 ounce bottle served at 42 degrees in glass beer challis
A) Murky glowing brass soup with lots of suspended yeasties and tiny bubbles. Short white head dissapates quickly leaving a quarter inch cover
S) Sweet citrus fruit, sour dough, mild ginger bread spice, alchohol esthers all in perfect proportion. Yummy.
T) Outstanding. Orange, apricot, sweet caramel. Alcohol? Yes, but I can't taste it
M) Ample carbonation, thick and sticky. Effervescent fizz.
O) An excellent triple. I will run, not walk, back to wence I came and buy more.

Going not by style, but by the ale, this is really nice and flavorful. If it were by style it is off the mark into a Belgian strong ipa and NOT a triple. That said....the beer pours a bright orange with thick frothy white head and EXCELLENT lacing and later pooling thin layers of foam. A "live" ale which I am fond of since it lives and matures much longer. Nose is sweet malts mingling with spicy hops, lemon grass, and Belgian bready yeast. Taste is up front sweet candy malts and sweet fresh bread yeast---ahhh the Belgians and their fantastic malts and yeast strains! The sweetness subsides into a citrus note, turning into a bittering hops note that lingers on and on. Very nice mouthfeel, nicely carbonated and smooth drinking. Excellent by ale standards, but not really a true Belgian triple. Great for hops heads, a bit over the top for Belgian lovers of which I AM.

On tap at the Atlanta Yard House.
A: lclear medium amber with a somewhat weak head.
Aroma: boozy with a hint of cognac oversome Belgian yeast and a trace of bread.
Flavor: lsweet up front turning ightly bitter by the finish. Building booziness.
Feel: light-medium body; carbonation seems too low.
Serving type: on-tap
