I read a few other reviews that claimed the smell was amazing, I do have a bit of a cold but i'm not getting much nose here. Maybe a bit of citrus, certainly nice but not particularly discernible, i'd say that other Tripel's (CBC Tripel Threat or GF Green Bullet) have a more discernible nose (just sayin').

The appearance is great very cloudy and light, farmhouse esq.

I typically care little for the "mouthfeel" category but i do think the super carbonation coming from this beer is fantastic.

The taste and my overall impression are that this is a great beer, though not indicative of the style. It reminds my of a slightly sour, kind-of-boozy farmhouse. But honestly, that's right up my alley so I think it's great.

If I hadn't paid $17 for this bomber, I might be more apt to drink it regularly. I guess it's not a regular brew anyway. Anchorage to New Hampshire is quite a trip, i wonder what it tasted like a year ago?

Batch 1: Oct 2011

Pours light grain yellow with brilliant clarity and a solid quilt of bone whites. Smells really nice with lemons, pineapple, grain, clay, a little green olive juice. Flavor doesn't disappoint - nice bitterness, some grass, some almost teatree oil and leather with a bit of metal. Thin bodied with hi carb and a wet finish. Nice beer.

750 mL bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a hazed light gold color with a fluffy white head. Decent lace and retention.

Nose is badass! Tart wine, leathery brett and belgian yeast...awesome stuff.

Taste is not a letdown after the excellent nose - glad to come across something like this every once in a while that you have never heard of and dont have any expectations. The brett is bold yet soft...melds with the malt so seamlessly. The wood and wine tartness is a perfect compliment to the tripel. The base beer tastes like it is pretty damn good in its own right - light grassy bitterness and delicate yeast is a perfect combination. Great beer. Buy it if you see it!
