Look: Head was made of big bubbles and stayed for a long time. Dark amber, lots of carbonation.

Smell: Very subtle and light, hints of citrus and delicate flowers.

Taste: No flavors really stood out to me. There was a mildly spicy alcohol bite, but overall it was pretty light and satisfying.

Feel: A little thick and creamy, sort of weird with so much carbonation but definitely not unpleasant.

Amazing. The flaked oat mash addition smooths the palate of this beer well. It's missing some of the spice and zing of a traditional Triple.
