Dragonmead's signature product! This is the ultimate Belgian style. The very high gravity of this beer is balanced by the smoothness of its finish. Banana and Clove aromas come from the Belgian yeast strain combining with the generous dose of Belgian Candi Sugar. The Saaz hops help to give this beer a balanced bitterness with no noticeable hop aroma.

bottle into snifter

appearance: dark cloudy unfiltered orange, slight white head, intricate lacing

smell: heavy coriander, clove, belgian yeast, subtle ginger, citrus, some grape

taste: coriander, citrus, lemon, not getting much of the malt presence, sourness is prominent, notes of apricot, hint of white wine, slight ginger in the finish. Very well balanced and smooth

mouthfeel: average carbonation, semi-full bodied, the finish is pretty thin..

overall: Probably my favorite American take on a trappist style trippel. While not equal to any Belgian equivalent, this is a damn good beer. Well balanced, refreshing, with a nice sour/fruity presence that adds some zest to the normal bready trippel style. My favorite offering from Dragonsmead, a quality brew that I will buy again. Pretty hard to find, even in SE Michigan.
