Golden, smooth, and crisp with notes of honeyed fruits and an aroma that is subtle. I promise you will enjoy this beer.

Appearance: It has a beautiful hazy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves light lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, lemon, coriander, wheat, light pepper and banana.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some citrus, lemon, coriander, wheat, some breadiness, peppery spices, light cloves and some banana.

Mouthfeel: It has a med-high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. Quite possibly the best Tripel I've ever had.

Serving type: bottle
