A-Pours a mostly clear yellow gold w/rich frothy white head, decent retention, some lacing, and visible carbonation beads rising throughout.
S-Coriander and herbs, light orange and apricot, spice, sweet fresh pale malt, yeast and traces of gunpowder-like sulfur.
T-Spice and herbs ride the pale malt, and possibly a bit of wheat, and there is a nice light fruit presence featuring mandarin orange along w/a complex array of subtle phenols. The hops emerge nicely in the finish and leave a clean palate w/remnants of sulfur and apricot.
M-Light-to-medium bodied w/good carbonation, excellent balance, and a crisp firm mouthfeel.
D-Very enjoyable, would buy this again.This is a complex tripel with a lot going on that I would very much like to re-evaluate in the future.
