No longer my favorite beer this is still one of the best of style in my book, a very good tripel.Its a bit candy sweet and fruity but it goes down oh so smooth with just enough drying herbal hop profile in the finish.Its big time drinkable and a great beer.

Pours a white frothy head. Cloudy, pale appearance. Fresh hop aroma. Maybe candi sugar aroma? The aroma reminds me a bit of some of the better Belgian beers that I've had (like De Dolle Stille Nacht). Very slight alcohol taste. Not as much as you'd expect from a 10+ % beer. There is a sour taste present similar to Belgian Beers also. There's a hoppy taste, but this beer is not bitter like an IPA. Pretty easy drinking for 10+ % alcohol. Kalamazoo website describes this beer as a tripple pale ale.
