50th Review on BA
Bottle to Tulip
12 oz.- Served at Lucky Devils in Hollywood, CA
App- Straw yellow with a giant pillow of head due to the server not pouring correctly. Wasn't the worst pour I've seen but a 4 finger head was a bit much. The color and bubbles brings the 4 on the rating.
Smell- The nose picks up some hay/straw characteristics and then a light citrus note and lastly the belgian yeast comes in.
Taste- It drinks very small for an 8.4 It was very mellow and smooth and paired well with the Kobe burger I was having. I picked up a slight bready malt quality to it on the aftertaste.
Mouth- Very robust yeast strain that fills the mouth with flavor yet is subtle in areas and very well balanced.
Drink- It's a very nice beer. Will def. have to find a bomber somewhere of this quality beer.

4.03/5 rDev -5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottle: a light brown 330mL brown bottle with a very busy yet stylish old-school Belgian label depicting the wheat fields.
Appearance: pours a honey amber colour with fine carbonation. A big white head bursts up and settles to a creamy white finger, leaving thick lacing as it dropped. Looks awesome!
Aroma: smells of spice, pepper, wheat and orchard fruits. Quite complex and refreshing.
Taste: again the complexity of flavours come through nicely with some heavier brandy and heavy fruits.
Aftertaste: flows through to the finish, lingering for a time. Pretty easy drinking yet nice as a slow sipper.
Mouth feel: a moderate- to- fuller body, with the sharp carbonation avoiding it being too syrupy.
Overall: a good quality Belgian Tripel - nice complexity of wheat, Belgian yeasts, orchard fruits, spice and some heavier ABV notes. Well worth the price.
