Been in my cupboard a few months.
A: Typical Belgian pale ale. Cloudy dark gold with a foamy white head.
S: Sensational burst of bathwater, touch of apple. Banana present but not pungent.
T: I love tripels like this. Tart with hoppy bitterness and hoppy bathwater. A fair bit of black pepper and lots of apples and berries in the finish. Not sweet though, and no coriander, thank goodness. Just finishing off and the bitterness is becoming quite unpleasant, like a paracetamol stuck in my throat.
O: If not for the bitterness in the finish I'd rate this close to 5. It's not at all the pleasant bitterness you get from IPA's.

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
