750 ML bottle with an expiration date of 4-6-14.

I had to use pliers to get the cork to budge and it left the bottle with a really loud pop but no overflow. It looks slightly hazy in the brown bottle and I can see some sediment.

A- Pours a slightly hazy gold color into a snifter with a one inch head that quickly dissipated to a foamy cap. Many lines of tiny bubbles.

S- What a magnificent nose. Sweetness, probably the alcohol but under that the malt and a hint of hops. Fresh fruit and floral notes. Deep, rich and persistent.

T- The taste is amazing. Mango, pineapple, mildly sweet up front giving way to a cider like tang at the finish. Some yeast notes in the finish.

M- Full bodied, carbonation is noticeable like a good sparkling wine. Carbonation yields to a velvety texture.

O- This is a very complex, well made triple with a huge flavor profile. I really want to give this a 5 but I didn't get the big creamy head that is supposed to be typical for this style. I'm not sure it is reasonable to expect a creamy head since this is bottle conditioned with carbonation that reminds me of fine Champaign. I am going to make this a regular part of my lineup and look forward to pairing it with food.

Best before 10/2014. Sharp, tart, yeasty nose. Strong banana and clove aromas. Pours golden with a bit of haze. Two-finger head sitting on top after pour settles out.

Puckering taste at entry. High alcohol noticeable right away. Estery bite next to the alcohol. Nice bright carbonation. Acidic taste left on the lips. Very dry finish.

Drinks easier and easier as you get deeper into the bottle! (No surprise there...)

“Nose: Floral bouquet, aromas of honey, spice, coriander, malt, and alcohol. Flavor: Mildly yeasty with a complex palate of malt, fruit and spice notes followed by a smooth, dry finish.”

Overall: B+, understated tripel

Poured from a bottle into a snifter glass.

Look – light golden in color, mixed with amber. It’s a bit hazy with about two fingers’ worth of thick off-white colored foam that dissipates somewhat slowly.

Smell – a rich, spicy/herbal type of smell..thick with complex malts and hops.

Taste – as with the smell, it has a very rich and complex taste. It has a mix of herbalness and spiciness. The bitterness from the hops starts in the middle of the taste and slowly blends to a mild intensity in the finish, but the aftertaste is a little bubbly like champagne.

Mouthfeel – very well balanced, leaning neither on the watery nor on the creamy sides.

Overall – very interesting brew, with a very intriguing taste.

Poured into a Birra Moretti goblet. Burping added a little interference to this one, as I'd had beer brats made with a few bottles of Narragansett for supper earlier (and they were
delicious).

A: Honey golden with light platinum gold highlights. Rich stuff. Poured with two+ inches of creamy white foam which shrank away quickly. Foam clings for dear life to the sides of the glass. Attempts to retain free will as individual glob of foam. Some does for a while, but all are re-assimilated back into the colony eventually. There is no escape.

S: Yeasty with notes of banana and citrus.

T: Sweet banana and cloves with a little hop spice on the backend, all amid a faint haze of alcohol, with a citrus tingle that hangs around at your house after the party is over
and shyly asks if you want to make out. Flavors sharpen as the brew warms.

M: Creamy and a touch on the thick side.

O: Been a while since I've had a really fantastic beer. I mean, I got a lot of good beer over the holidays, but nothing that really made me crave another one immediately afterward.
A fantastic beer and one I look forward to having again soon.
