Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A real deep ruby red, hints at faint brown on the edges, but glows bright. Head is creamy picking up a bit of red body with some pink to it mostly off white. Three finger head and very nicely together and even. Gorgeous red color, and settles leaving a good creamy thin puck.

Slightly floral notes, but also some bile aromas that hit in the back. Mild tartness, and a faint cough drop sense of cherry as well on the nose. Interesting mix of cream and spicy fruit, but there's a little bit of off putting character just slightly.

Palate is a bit unexpected. Big creamy malt body, thick and almost vanilla. Large hot acid tartness, filling with floral and cherry like sour slightly in the mid palate. Malt gets thick with some vanilla sweetness. There is a bit of fighting clash between malt thick sweetness of classic tripel and some puckering fruit floral tartness. Bit of heavy carbonation with a spritzy and quinine feel and flavor too.

Overall a real interesting tripel.

Appearance: A very hazy apricot and strawberry color. Minimal head retention. Very nice lacing all around the glass.

Nose: Sour farmhouse cherry and strawberry with kiwi. A tiny bit of banana and herbs at the end. Some fresh watermelon as well.

Taste: Tart with a sweet undertone. watermelon, strawberry, and slightly herbaceous, A fresh hibiscus finish.

Notes: very fresh and fruity. Very nice and unique for a triple.

Quite dark red amber in the tulip, in fact it's the darkest Tripel I've ever seen. Very brief flirtation of foam, so fragile it's gone before you can take a sip. A little fruity aroma. Flat mouthfeel with a serious lack of carbonation.

Taste is warm, fruity, and a little woody. Starts off sugary but finishes dry and bitter from the Belgian yeast. Slightly tangy, like Hawaiian Punch with tonic water. Hot with alcohol. Winey, grapey, and a little tannic.

Not much yeasty flavor, just the drying sensation. Not much pleasure in this stuff. On tap at Local Habit in San Diego.
