3.31/5 rDev -13.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: One finger tall tiny bubble head poured from the can into the snifter glass and fell to a dusting on the top of the beer and a bright white edge around the rim. The appearance, a sunshine yellow color with no haze.
S: Cider like phenols that remind me of a white wine (white grapes and green apples). Not much in the way oh hops or grain detected.
T: The phenolic wine flavors of grapes come through in the taste as well. Grainy malt is detected behind the dominant yeast flavors. Enought bitterness to cut out some of the sweetness, but the yeast adds the perception of sweetness also.
M: High on the carbonation and light on the body. When sitting on the pallet it provides a prickly sensation with the tiny bubbles.
O: Truth be told belgians aren't my forte and this one tasted like a hopped wine. I'm giving my rattings a margin of error because of this but I don't think I'd get this again.

16oz can poured into a tulip.
(A)- Pours a lightly hazed golden orange color. Produced a nice cap of white froth. Some lacing was left behind.
(S)- A nice nose of lightly spiced clove meets a dry biscuit-like yeast. Subtle hints of lemon and banana.
(T)- Very similar to the smell. More up front is some nice lemon and banana esters. the mid palate yields that same nicely dry biscuit-like yeast. Finishes lightly spiced (clove) and subtlely sweet.
(M)- A nice lively carbonation level meets a well balanced tripel overall. Dry, but fruity and ever so slightly sweet. Ever so minimally bitter as it warmed.
(O)- A solid Tripel from the states. Most tend to be way too sweet or apple cider-like, but this one is really on point.
