Pours a murky honey orange with a 2 inch foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy latticework of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, yeast, spices, pepper, and dirt. Taste is of grain, spices, pepper, and just a hint of yeast flavors on the finish. There is a slight alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good tripel but nothing too exciting or memorable.

Wifey picked this one up for lil ol' me.

Poured into my big ass Bubba Gump glass and I am met with a pretty clear straw, apricot colored ale and a nice off-white foamy head. The aroma has some banana, apricot, malt, light rose and more floral. The taste is malty with a backbone of orange julius and slight medicinal characteristics. Bready. Peppery, slight hop finish. Hearty brew. Big time full bodied and yet smooth. They did a good job here as others of the same style can be thin. Overall I thought this was decent but nothing spectacular.

Had this on tap at Shotwell's in the Mission, SF.

Pours blonde with a thick head and just a bit of lacing that dissipates as it warms. Looks right on for a tripel, just a bit of opaqueness through the glass.

Smell is not incredibly nice - The issue comes from a skunky, old rag smell that permeates the yeasty, fruity, clover driven typical tripel nose. This exists, but its hard for it to shine through.

Taste is quite nice, its an interesting mix of fruit, spicey yeast and a nice hoppy kick at the end...however, this is way more of a Belgian IPA than a Tripel, we all agreed this thing has waaay too much hoppy character to qualify for the style...still though, were in SF, so we like hops so what the hell, 4.0 for the taste.

Feel is good, a bit light and lagery for me for some reason, didn't quite hit the belgian mouthfeel thing head on.

Overall, this is a better than average beer, a solid adaptation of west-coast hops and belgian yeast into a tripel. I look forward to trying more styles from this brewery.

Poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: hazy, golden straw color. Pours white head that fades quickly. Moderate lacing.

Smell: brett, earthy, citrus, lemon, grapefruit.

Taste: estery, earthy, citrus, matly.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, moderate carbonation, creamy.

Overall: A decent belgian triple. A bit malty but still drinkable. Impressive for the breweries first bottled beer.

A-Inception pours bright, clear light amber with a thin ring of fizzy, brilliant white bubbles. Typically beers of this style have a thick, creamy cap of off white foam, so this is a bit of a surprise.

S- The nose brings us back to the realm of the typical Belgian strong pale ale with aromas of golden raisin, clove and preserved lemon.

T/M- The mouth feel and body are much softer and lighter than most traditional Belgian tripels. Drinks like a cross between a tripel and an American pale ale. The typical Belgian fruit esters and herbal spiciness of a good tripel are present, but they’re backed up with a sweet, biscuity maltiness and a dry, hoppy backbone.

O- A dangerously drinkable Belgian strong ale. You’d never know this was 8%. Medium bodied with soft, supportive carbonation.
