Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass.
A: Hazy orange color with a thin surface residue of white bubbles. No lacing remains on the glass.
S: Heaps of bright fruit, and Belgian yeast that evokes almond-like qualities. There is an intense spirit quality that is complex rather than boozy.
T: Begins almost dry, with bready malt and fruit that includes papaya and apricot. Acidity is moderate into the middle where banana esters follow peppery phenolics. The finish is drying, with a re-emphasis of malt but only low bitterness. No alcohol is detected.
M: Medium to thick viscosity, slightly acidic on the palate, with brisk carbonation.
D/O: This tripel is loaded with obvious Belgian qualities, apparently trying to offer a literal lesson in abbey-style ale. Nuanced it is not, separating it from the best of its style. Such beers can be simultaneously delicate and spirituous, yet stand up to the most savory of foods. This beer does stand up, but so rigidly as to be awkward.
