3.78/5 rDev -8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: Bright shade of orange brown with a big white head.
S: Heavy yeast presence, with noticeable hops and candy sugar. There's also floral and clove characters along with fruity (banana and pear) attributes.
T: My initial reaction is that this is pretty dry. The pale malt and hops are most readily apparent without much sweetness to speak of. Maybe a little apple and pear, but not much fruit. Finish is long, a little spicy and somewhat bitter.
M: Light, crisp and well-carbonated. Well-fitting for the flavor.
Overall, a quality beer that I appreciate paired well with the right foods. As far as sipping by itself, I usually prefer tripels that are sweeter than this one.

Pours a fairly clear golden with a lingering frothy ivory head. Notes of green apple, lots of peach, coriander, and clove dominate. The flavor is more subtle, with sharp green apple,a touch of pear, and citrus becoming bready mid palate and finishing peppery and spicy. Great beer, with a well appointed dry character that keeps it refreshing. Bitterness is a touch more than I'd prefer.
Serving type: on-tap
