Pour: Hazy dark orange in color. Two fingers of white head that sticks around nicely and leaves a bit of lacing on the glass.
Smell: Very tangy and fruity aroma, mainly lemon. Slightly spicy and yeasty.
Taste: Sweet malty front end with a touch of honey. Gives way into a yeasty and fruity middle consisting of some banana and lemon. Finishes up with a delicate hop bitterness and a strong spice note.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and very highly carbonated. Still maintains a certain creaminess and smoothness despite the carbonation.
Drinkability/Overall: This is good stuff. Very smooth drinking beer with lots of good flavors going on. I can feel the calories and alcohol piling up though, definitely not a session beer!
Final Notes: A solid Tripel with good flavor, just a bit on the pricey side, and I can think of a few Tripels that are less expensive but better than this one. Nonetheless, good stuff.
Serving type: bottle

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
