11.2 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A. It is a light orange color and is cloudy from start to finish. It had a four fingered head which stuck around for quite awhile and left lacing on the glass.

S. It smells of Belgiam yeast followed by some sweet and spicy citrus fruit (lemon in particuler comes through).

T. This way to easy drinking for a beer of this alcohol level. It starts off slightly bitter transitioning into sweet fruit and some earthy flavors and finishes with some warmth in the throat which is the only indication of the 9.5% alcohol level.

M. It has a medium body with some carboanation.

Overall. This is the first Tripel I have tried and I cannot imagine one much better. it is sweet and full of flavor.

A corked and caged 750mL bottle, born on 03/15/2012. Split into tulips.

Pours a vibrant, hazy yellow color with golden and orange hues. Roughly two inches of pure white, fluffy head develops; it leaves a nice, frothy coating on the glass as it settles. The aroma is of wheat, straw, white pepper, lemon citrus, a bit of tart orange, funky yeast, and some acidic apple notes. It tastes of light grains (straw, hay, wheat), some grass, lemon and orange citrus, sour apple, funky yeast, and a hint of clove. No surprises here, it tastes how you would expect from the aroma. The mouthfeel is light, crisp, and a hint acidic. A clean, but almost prickly finish from the carbonation livens it up. Overall, a great beer that is always worth returning to.
