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

750ml bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

A: Dull golden color, slight haze. Massive rocky white head. Tons of thick foamy stickage.

S: Musty yeast, downplayed white pepper phenolics, bready and biscuity malts with light toasted notes, white grape skin, herbal hops.

T: Yeasty and musty. A touch vinous with hints of white grape. Hit of alcohol. Herbal hops. Maybe some lemon. Modestly bitter. Bready malt base is actually fairly sweet. Subtle tartness. Semi-sweet malt tastes start to lose ground to the bitterness in the finish.

M: Fat medium body. Slick and round in feel. Large bubbled carbonation has less bite than expected.

O: Sweeter than expected, and with a larger malt body. The yeast complexity is nice. Maybe a brut version would tickle my fancy a little more, but as it stands this ain't bad.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours hazy honeyed gold with a big thick white head initially. 1/8th inch skim bubbly white head/ring with a little splashy foam. Pretty.

Tropical fruit, vanilla, wood, and a little yeast in the nose. Nice.

Best description is a Belgian tripel with alot of fizz and a dry finish. Juicy tropical fruit, mild bitterness, a little cracker, a little bread, vanilla, wood, alcohol. As pallet clears, modest bitterness turns dry and clean. Really good.

Medium bodied because of the carbonation. If you let this go flat, this would be full bodied.

Great brew. Been staring at this for a year and pulled the trigger. $17 a bottle is…creeping toward my top end, but boy is this worth it. Complex and well crafted, and drinkable at 11%. Only other one of this style I've had is Infinium by Sam Adams. SA is absolute sewage compared to this, and actually is more expensive than this. Seek this, trade for this, try this.
