From a 750 ml bottle (Batch #4, July 2014) into a teku glass.

A-The beer is light-honey colored with a fair amount of particulate visible in the murky liquid. The head is about a finger tall to start and drops to a cap pretty quickly. The foam is eggshell in color and leaves a bit of lacing as I drink. Floaters are sometimes a turnoff for me, but the beer looks like a tripel.

S-The aroma opens with a big hit of fruity, brett funk. The funk gives way to a nice mixture of white wine, oak, tart white grape, lime, pineapple, and floral flavors. There is a bit of bread and dough too. It smells like a tripel, but with a nice twist of tartness and fruit. Inviting.

T-The taste is similar, but dough and bread are move prevalent and there is a bit of honey sweetness. The vinous flavors remain strong though, and there is just a bit of lime citrus flavor, as well as some peach and oak. The finish is floral and almost herbal with a bit of pepper spice.

M-The body is medium in heft with a smooth but persistent carbonation. It fits the beer very well.

O-This is a great beer. I love tripels, but I usually prefer more traditional examples of the style, e.g., Karmeliet, than modern, funky barrel-aged brews. This beer may change my opinion. The flavors here are complex, subtle, and manage to work well with each other to provide a nice overall package. The mouthfeel is nearly perfect for the beer too. This would work well with food.
