Notes/Commercial Description:
Finding new zymological expressions is a noble dedication of the craft beer enthusiast. For those committed to the adventure of seeking new styles, beer destinations and breweries, we applaud you and dedicate this golden Belgian-style trippel ale.

This smooth and alluring Belgian golden ale is full of complex fruity pineapple flavors set against a spicy finish. Dried jasmine flowers added in the boil work with a higher alcohol level to augment Belgian pilsen, caramel and honey malts. Hop character is distinctly Chinook with an aromatic peppery finish that comes from Motueka hops grown in New Zealand.

3.51/5  rDev -9.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains caramelized malts, Belgian yeast, honey, spices, some fruit and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty malt character and Belgian yeast up front. Then some sweet flavors of caramel, spices and honey come in along with some tart fruit flavors as well. There’s a significant alcohol bite and sting. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent beer but there are several others in the style that I would pick first.

Pours a hazy orange/amber color.
Aroma is mainly honey, very sweet.

Taste is apricot, honey, pineapple with a very slight spicy/drying finish, however it doesn't really balance it out much. The sweet honey/fruity flavor masks the classic Belgian spices that are the heart and soul of a Trippel.

This actually is almost similar to a mead rather than a Belgian Trippel. I like mead, so it's not bad at all, but not what I was expecting.
