3.11/5 rDev -25.4%
Held on to this one a year when I heard it was pretty bright, pretty sharp.
Hazy yellow, white Belgian head.
Spicy and yeasty, little citric.
Coriander's prevalent. Bread with notes of banana but not necessarily fruity, little clove. There's some edge on the end from the alcohol and candi sugar. Hops are muted as expected. The year I put on this one may well have subdued it.
Oddly creamy, soft beer for a tripel. More of a blonde.

I have been looking for this anniversary tripel. Finally found it in a store in Wichita. Shipped it back home in my luggage.
Poured into a tulip.
They say tripels are notorious for hiding their ABV – not this one. You will not be caught by surprise. Well balanced malt flavors with hoppiness. Not bitter. Every once and awhile the alcohol breaks through in a negative way. Too old or too young?
A – Poured cloudy pale orange but crystal clear when it was warm on the shelf. Definitely fridge haze. Big fluffy white two-finger head, slightly rocky. Fantastic Belgian Lace.
S – Yeasty, some citrus and spice. Minor alcohol with a bit of solventy heat (-).
T – Peppery, medium maltiness, slight citrus, too much alcohol (-)
MF – Crisp, well carbonated, medium-light body, dry finish.
