October 3, 2014

25.4 oz bottle, tulip

A – Dark yellow with orange tint, extremely high carbonation with tons of bubbles in the beer itself. Four inches of craggy, rocky white foam that seems to last forever. About ½ inch left when all is said and done.

S – Citrus, reminiscent of nectarine, orange peel, curacao. Peppery and tangy. Some alcohol warmth in the background. Maybe some banana, bubble gum.

T – Foamy, dense, orangey and slightly peppery. Some earthiness, mushroominess. Very mild, floral hop flavor, just a touch of hop bitterness to balance the sweetness. A lot more banana, some bubble gum.

M – Foamy and effervescent. Somewhat thin, but the bubbles coat the tongue and leave a sweet finish. Thinness seems to be from the alcohol, is not a flaw. Slightly syrupy on the finish.

O – Not quite the knockout tripel I was expecting based on the reputation, but a very good example of the style.
