One of my absolute new favorites. I am obsessed! This was a real treat.

Like drinking tart cherry juice spiced with clove and cinnamon; just the right amount of sweetness that lent a near-perfect drinkability, a fantastic follow-up to my Delirium Tremens. In fact, I enjoyed it even more. Loved this beer and I´ve made it my go-to!!

Amazingly crystal clear super light blonde color with lots of visible effervescence with a craggy and huge bright white head. Dry biscuit on the nose with dry fruits, melons and apples, touch of bananas with faint herbal spicy hop aroma.

Light bodied with champagne like effervescence. Surprisingly mild in flavor which is awesome, light toasty graininess, dry biscuits, sweet fruitiness along the mid-palate with an extremely dry and clean finish with an earthy herbal hop flavor. Extremely subtle with delicate flavors that layer beautifully. Light refreshingly and full of immense subtle character that is in perfect balance.

Poured from a 750ml corked and caged bottle. I love painted bottles and this one had a cool label. The neck had a small paper label with a best by date of May08. It had a slightly hazy golden color with bits of yeast floating especially towards the end of the pour. The bottle gave a loud pop and the cork nearly shot out of my hands. It had a massive 4 finger whitish head that slowly, slowly settled to a constant foam with great lacing. The aroma was incredible. It was fruity with a ton of spice. It really reminded me of the better wit smells. The mouthfeel was creamy and has the perfect amount of carb (which was constantly bubbling from the bottle of the snifter). The taste was also incredible. The problem I have with most tripels is that the great flavors get overpowered by the high ABV. This one is on the lower end of the ABV range and is perfectly balanced. The spiciness just washes over your palette and has you reaching for more. Overall, an incredible beer that I can't recommend enough. I try to rarely give out all 5's but I couldn't find a single area that didn't truly deserve it. (5, RR, T, Y, HOF)
