look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On tap at Monkish Brewing Company in Torrance, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, spice, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with vanilla, spice, and slight nut flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a vanilla and pistachio presence that is only noticeable in the flavor.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap @ the source. "Seed of life".

A: Pours a slightly hazy peach color with a thin white head which leaves a few spots of lace.

N: Fruity (plums, apricots), slightly vinous, floral, complex.

T: Slightly sweet with malts and yeast, floral, nutty, faint vanilla, complex.

M: Moderate body and semi-medium carbonation. Creamy, fruity, yeasty and sweetish finish.

O: High ABV is noted. There is a lot going on in this beer. Very artistic and well put together. Nice.

Serving type: on-tap

First time at the tasting room yesterday. This one was labeled a tripel with pistachios and vanilla. Easily my favorite of the day.

A: Clear apple cider color with a thin bone white head.

S: Crazy smell. Very sweet and nutty, almost like biscotti. There's a rich, cake-like aroma to it as well that reminded me of a pound cake. Some hazelnut in there, too.

T: Opens on a sweet tripel note with some Belgian yeast and hints of hazelnut. Prickly booze in the middle with some dry chalky yeast. Finish brings a good amount of pistachios, both the meat and the skin. A pretty good beer.

Serving type: on-tap
