Bought locally (Grapevine refrigerated shelves), a few days in my fridge, reviewed 45F-60F.

Got gunsmoke from the small, capped bottle. HUGE, white, noisy head in my round-bottomed glass. The core is dense, but the edges are coarse, leading to a beautiful, uneven slow, ice-cream collapse. Thick, clumpy foam is more an extension of the head than it is lacing. The beer is clear amber gold.

There's a very nice, spicy smell, full of sweet fruit. The front specializes that fruit to apples, I think. Sweet and spicy. Then malt. The finish is just a little syrupy, but still manages to be fresh. Some alcohol is noticeable in the aftertaste. This probably isn't the most interesting tripel, but it sure isn't far off.

11.2 oz bottle poured in a chalice glass. Yellow, with a modest head of foam. Amazing citrus and fruit notes. Reminds me of a fine Hefeweizen. Banana, orange, and wheat. Smells like a floral bouquet. It's hard to believe this has 8.4% ABV. It's as smooth as a soft drink. The perfect balance of bitterness and sweetness. I'm going to run, not walk, to my local beer distributor to buy more.
