Golden-orange, warm honey like color with an aroma undoubtedly of a belgian. Almost surprising sweet notes all throughout the tasting, but not bad once its all down. Tad bit heavy on mouthfeel but very pleasing flavor aroma and smell. Happy medium for full flavor without overpowering hops.

On tap at the brewery – 01/22/14
Served in a 6oz taster glass

A: Lightly burnished gold look with great clarity. Frothy half finger of paper white suds sits on top. Moderate staying power with some low amount of stick leaving only a few dotted streaks behind.

S: Bright Belgian yeast spice on the nose. Filled with coriander, clove, and a touch of banana peel. A little lemon pepper there and some golden fruit sweetness to it. Nice and on point with the style.

T: Ripe golden pear meets coriander spice, cracked peppercorn, and a touch of clove. There are some lesser notes of banana peel and bubblegum mixing in as well. A bit of dry cracker malt at the base brings a candy like sweetness to the brew. Real nice balance to this with a moderate bitterness and some low perceived alcohol noted. A rather nice and considerably hoppy Tripel.

M: Very smooth with a frothy pop from a higher carbonation. Light to medium in body and crisp with a nicely drying finish. Light stickiness but fairly clean overall.

D: A surprisingly delicious blend. Vibrant in Belgian spice flavors with a well crafted balance. This is a very nice and hoppy Tripel that I would love to have again.
