A- Pours a turbid deep yellow to amber with a nice lacey head. Looks beautiful and enticing.

S- What a lovely smell! Fruit esters followed by a little hop spice with a dose of breadiness and tinges of yeast. Little bit of booze in the nose that mixes perfectly with the other aromas. The smell gets more intense as you let this beer warm.

T- A little dry up front, then bready with banana yeast and Belgian-candi undertones, some fruit esters and a hint of hops. A very complex, incredible assemblage that ceases to amaze and just gets better the longer the beer sits.

M- Incredible. Crisp, perfect amount of carbonation, not at all syrupy. Just delightful.

D- This is truly the mother of all tripels, and currently my favorite ale to rock on. It's just done so well. The mix is fantastic, and for being 9.5% it really goes down smooth. The vibe of it is great if you have a few too. Grab a 750ml, a chalice, and sit down and enjoy it all to yourself. This beer just opens up the warmer it gets, so let it chill and you will ride this brew to heaven.
