12 oz. brown foil-topped bottle poured into a goblet. "Best Before" date of 11-12-11 is printed on the label.

Cracks open with a nice hiss, pouring a rich golden hue with two fingers of white foam that fades quickly to a thick ring that holds on to the surface but not to the glass, leaving behind no lacing.

Very citrusy and fruity in the nose, with distinctive notes of apricot and a bit of tangerine, with some vague peppery spice notes interspersed within.

Bright and lively on the tongue, with a tingly carbonation that cleanses the palate, leading the way for bitter lemon peel and orange zest, combined with spicy notes of cracked pepper and faint hints of clove, all laid over a base of smooth, almost buttery, slightly sweet malt flavor that fades away into a very dry, spicy finish that calls for yet another swallow.

Extremely drinkable, but quite deceiving, hiding its hefty 9% ABV superbly.

A magnificent beer and a spot-on example of the style that lacks really only in appearance, where a bit more head retention would serve it well for beauty's sake.

12 oz bottle into a goblet. Bottle has a "best by" date of 07-09-12. Pours a rich orange color, with a moderate head, but good retention and lacing. Smells are very muted, but spicy yeast, apples, and a touch of pine are present. Tastes are spot on for a tripel, plenty of sweetness but a very good balance between hops and malt. Really not able to taste the alcohol at all, dry on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a nice creamy texture. This one is dangerous at 9% ABV, but it's one of my favorite tripels. Great beer, good price!
