Notes/Commercial Description:
This complex, straw-colored ale has clove and pear aromas. A marriage of spicy and fruity flavors help perfectly balance its elegant malt profile. Pair with rich foods like steaks, roasts, earthy cheeses, and cheese cake.

4/5  rDev +4.4%

a: light amber, small foamy head that resolves to a fine effervescence with residual off white foam at the edges
s: pleasant esters, strong alcohol, malty/molasses, caramel apple and hint of pasture, wet burlap
t: sweet malty forward, over ripe apple/pear, bubble gum with good hoppy offset to the sweet malts, hint of bret like funk without it being overpowering, and fairly clean finish
m: good effervescence and mouth feel, not syrupy despite its sweet, malty
o: A rather enjoyable beer, good mix of malt, hops and complex flavors, sweeter than the typical tripel, but I rather enjoyed it, and wouldn’t hesitate to buy it on future visits to Texas. I was in Texas on business, and I always enjoy sampling local beers when I travel. This Austin beer produces quite a variety of beers, that I look forward to sampling.

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
