Label says 8.5%. Must be a new batch.

Golden-orange in color and a hefty and dense white froth covering. Smells malty and grainy with an undercurrent of light fruits. Tastes of melon, spice, taffy and finishes off with a bit of herb on the tongue and grain down the throat. Crisp and dry all the way.

Understated and dangerously drinkable but not as flavorful as I would like.

APPEARANCE: Straw, yellow in color. No bubble action beneath the surface aside from a stray bubble or two. The head, after a 12oz. pour into a Funkwerks globe, was greater than two fingers high. Over the course of three minutes, that big, tightly packed, white head fell down to a thin cap. Lacing is clearly present, but minimal.

SMELL: Bread is the only aroma that come through with any intensity. There is a hint of citrus (mostly lemon) and some slightly spicy notes.

TASTE: Spice and citrus. The orange comes through in a fun, playful way up front and ends up lasting throughout the sip. Some coriander and pepper follows it up.

MOUTHFEEL: This is absolutely ridiculous in the mouthfeel. 9.4% feels like an insanely light, 5% lager, but it has all the spiciness, character and depth of a Tripel...and, of course, hides the booze like any good Tripel would. Sweet enough, but with a nice, solid, dry finish.

OVERALL: This is a supremely drinkable beer and 9.4% is absurd. It's just too easy and enjoyable to drink.

Pours hazy pale golden color with chunks of yeast. Thick white head almost overflowed, but settled into a nice, long lasting layer. Nose has nice tangy fruits, yeasty/bready qualities, and a candied component. Palate offers a nice balance of flavors and a creamy mouthfeel. Would buy regularly if priced more reasonably compared to competitors such as NB Tripel. Or for this price, I'll just take the real examples from Belgium.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a tulip, the beer is a hazy, bright yellow coloring, with a halo of white head. Nose of grass, lemon, butter, floral hops, and all-spice. Flavors are lemon-grass forward, with bitter hops, pepper spice, and toasted notes. Smooth, mid-bodied, with a grainy and herbal aftertaste. Light, smooth, herbal linger in the finish. Very nice, well crafted beer.
