3.78/5  rDev -0.8%

A – A rather hazy golden color with a healthy amount of white head that has solid retention and leaves admirable lacing.

S – It really smells pretty darn good, with a sweet fruity smell, cloves and yeast. Definitely a bit of spiciness in here as well.

T – Mild yet flavorful, well-crafted. It has fruity flavors of pear, apple and white grape with the clove and yeast that was in the nose; some definite funk/hay in here as well but it is not altogether unpleasant. There is also a bready/biscuity quality here that is sweet with a nice spicy undertone that brings the whole thing together.

M – Medium bodied, the alcohol is pretty undetectable, moderate carbonation yielding a quality mouthfeel.

O – I’m impressed by this actually, I wasn’t sure it was going to be this good, but this is a totally quality Tripel. Thoroughly enjoyed this and I would definitely recommend it.

On tap at the Big Texas Beer Fest.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of bread and white notes, with a little bit of yeast thrown in. The flavor is more of the same, with some wheat and grain coming through front and center. There is also a little bit of sweetness from the candy sugar, as well as a little bit of toasted character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured into a goblet…
Batch: 003 Bottle: 1613
It’s a light burnt orange/amber color, relatively hazy and filled with mild carbonation. Its topped off with a thin white head that quickly dissipates and becomes one massive island that almost cover the top of the glass, and it’s all surrounded by a thins ring of lacing. The smell is rather light and lacking but sweet overall. I can pick up some light malts but not much else. Its light bodied and is a bit crisp when it first hits your tongue and has a medium-to-light mouth feel. Cloves and mild citrus fruit are present in the flavor, spices are plentiful. There is a slight alcohol presence in the aftertaste.

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.

A: in a tulip, shining gold beer, hazy, with a full head of fluff; lace motes down the glass

S: flowers and hints of sweet honey, grassy and grainy fields

T: lush, fruity and dry, ample semi-sweet grains and classic tripel hop and yeast flavors; hints of citrus

M: full on the tongue, fuzzy, smooth, airy and clean-finishing

O: I would've sworn this was a Trappist Belgian tripel - spot-on representation of the style

A: The beer is slightly hazy golden yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down rather quickly, but left a pillow of bubbles in the center of the glass, a collar around the edge and a thin film of bubbles in between.
S: Aromas of Belgian yeast and cloves are present in the nose along with hints of pears.
T: The taste mostly seems to follow the smell, except that there are stronger notes of fruity flavors and lesser hints of cloves, the latter of which is most noticeable in the finish. Hints of candi sugars and the associated alcohol are also perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I felt that this was a solid representation of the style and seemed to have a good balance between each of the ingredients. The alcohol became a little more prominent as the beer warmed up, but for the most part stayed in the background.

Note: Batch No. 013, Bottled on 10/2/2013
