My buddy has an empty bottle of this in his room, salvaged from a semester in Europe. Recognized the label in the fridge at Bauer's on Newbury and had to snag it on the way home from Work.
Nice golden clarity and lively carbonation racing to the top of my glass. A massive pearly white head forms and stays there. Aromas like sweet but crisp tart fruits – sliced green apples – hit me first but there’s definitely a spicy, peppery element there too. More fruity depth in the taste: juicy fruit gum (I think sweet lemon, papaya, dried mango, all that). There’s a light crackery grain, and, rolling down my lip, a verdant hop bitterness.
Mouth: one of my favorite things about this beer. I like the lively, prickly carbonation from the little bubbles. 8%? No way.
Overall: 5/5: it’s that good. I’m no tripel fiend but this one is amazing. Something like this really gets me amped up about beer.
