The beer pours out of the can into a Duvel glass a lightly hazed golden orange-yellow color with visible light carbonation and some bits of sediment. The 1/4” white head persists briefly and then settles down to thin irregular island of foam over part of the liquid. The ring of foam around the glass leaves small patches of lacing on the sides of the glass, especially when sipping.

The aroma is lightly sweet, citric and lightly spicy with clear, but faint spicy notes from the Belgian yeast.

As expected from the nose the flavors include a bit of citrus (from the orange peel used in brewing the beer), some sweetness. About mid-way through there are hints of green orchard fruits, a bit of coriander and maybe even some white pepper (but if so its very hard to isolate). While there are noble hops in this beer what bitterness I can pick up seems to be from the orange peel and the hops don't really show.

The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with very light, slightly prickly carbonation. The finish is dry and shows the coriander nicely as it tapers off to the end and invites another sip.

Overall this is a nice respectable triple which can be easily found in this area and which is competitive choice when out at the bar. It drinks easily and while it isn't in the same league as the Westmalle Tripel (but then how many tripels are :-) ) While it is a bit different from many other tripels with its use of orange peel, the beer is well worth a try. Also, tonight I've learned one of the downside of canning. Its hard so see if there's any sediment at the bottom of the container and "decanting" the beer can be a bit of more challenging than with a bottle.

1/26...bomber. Pours bright gold with white foam touches on top. Strong belgian yeast nose. Citrus pokes through. Lemons. Taste is a light malt, peppery. Citrus, hoppy. A few in and the booziness is apparent. Leaves a bitter taste but chewy and sweet. Complex and flavorful.

A: The beer is slightly hazy golden yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down and left a short head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of honey and orange peel are present in the nose.
T: The taste starts off with flavors of orange, honey and candi sugar and finishes with some spicy coriander.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This tripel is unique in the sense that it is brewed with coriander and orange peel so it tastes like a souped up witbier.
