A: Pours a hazy apricot color with a huge two finger cream colored head. Looks really awesome.

S: Uh oh. Skunk and funk. First thing I smelled was a blast of skunk, followed by a pretty big dose of brett. Pretty sure it's not supposed to smell like this. Some toasted oak, almond meal, and Belgian yeast.

T: In a word- unbalanced. Stays between big flavors of sweet Belgian yeast and a pretty substantial bretty funk flavor. Aspirin and heavy bready malt as well. Again, I don't think this bottle is right. I'll revisit and rewrite if necessary.

Smell: tangerines with cream and sugar

Taste: bountiful dry hops, tangerines, tinges of rose, sugar, walnuts, barley pears, pine needle sap, with a scotch-like burn; crisp and tangy

Probably the BEST TRIPEL MADE, this beer is one of the most complex beers one could ever drink. Touched by the hands of god, these Trappist monks sure know how to shake it down.

Pair this beer with the finer things in life, such as, chateau briand, New Zealand lamb, or filet minion with properly prepared escargot and buttery vegetables: this beer and pairing is second to none
