a: its a clear amber color, no other way to put it. a little clearer and darker than i'm used to in a tripel. its a fizzy white head that starts at about 3 fingers and fizzes down to one

s: the aroma is a nice blend of warming alcohol, ripe pears, bananas, green apples, strawberries, a little wheat, and a nice amount of sweet grains. there is just the faintest hint of something funky in here as well

t: immediately you taste the balance of sweet and alcohol. sweet malts go to play against some of that warming alcohol. pears and banana then dominate the middle of the mouth. they fade to a sweet strawberry, nice grain flavor, and then some more alcohol to finish

m: medium mouthfeel with a normal amount of carbonation for a tripel (not overly carbonated, but enough to push the fruity flavors up front)

o: its a little sweeter than im used to, but its pretty good. my criticism would be they've had to let a little too much alcohol flavor in here to balance out the sweetness - dial them both back a bit would be nice. i really like the ripe pear presence in here though, it works very well with the beer. its a nice mouthfeel too

Poured from the bottle into a flared wine glass.

Pale apricot gold brass and yellow lemon. Very orb glowing quality with some thin carbonation in the middle. No head produced, what little was bone white and evaporated very quickly. Virtually no collar or anything left at all. Very nice body color though.

Great bouquet on this brew. Large bakery dough and sweet pastry notes. Hints of angel cake, deep grains and malt, with just a touch of sweetness. Minimal sensing hotness of alcohol but nothing large but slightly noticeable. VEry nice.

Palate is explosive. Large pear and juiced fruit notes, with large bread and thick undertones. Slightly hinting tropical mango in the sweetness character, good amounts of vanilla on this also with just a hint of booze. Classic matching bread dough from the nose, with cake like sweetness. Slightly creamy but with a dry effervescent mouthfeel pop with mild to moderate carbonation, and a bit of huoney malt density.

A very impressive state side tripel, full of lush palate flavors, and unique tastes to go with it.
