4.59/5 rDev +20.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Type: 750 bottle
From: Bell's General Store
Appearance: deep yellow not quite clear. some sediment floating. slightly off-white head, about a finger that slowly fades to almost nothing.
Smell: Honey, citrus, florals, slightly fruit. Smells wonderful
Taste: pretty similar to the nose, honey, citrus, florals with a touch of fruit. followed up by a bitter slight hoppy finish.
Mouthfeel: fairly light and smooth. has a crispness to it and slightly warming sensation. leaves mouth dry and wanting another drink
Overall: I have been searching for this beer for quite some time and was expecting a lot from it. It did not disappoint. I am glad that I found it at Bell's. Very good in every aspect and pretty close to a perfect american tripel.

Served in a Dogfish shaped pint glass.
Like fine champagne... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunset golden-brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises biscuit, light banana peel, light green apple skin, and a touch of spicy yeast. The taste brings in more of the same, with the biscuit and a less-spicy version of the yeast taking full control. Every now and again, some chlorophyll-laden flowers peek their heads in to make sure things are going okay. What diligent babysitters (he says sarcastically). The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, not all that reflective of a tripel, nor all that sparkling. It's not a bad beer, but one I just don't see drinking all that much of in the future.
