A clear golden ale with a thick, tight, and sticky head that leaves nice clumps and slowly fades. A bit of a collar remains all the way down. Smell is deceptively light with Belgian pilsner malt and a huge yeast fruit ester signature. Lots of malt, bread and light fruits. Nary a hint of alcohol unless you search, and then very light fusel notes. Clean dry almost lager like hop signature. Taste is light and malty upfront with a strong hop presence to balance and deliver the well constructed base. A honeyed hint of alcohol and lots of juicy malt with hunks of sweet dinner bread. large. Firm hop finish that is super dry and quenching. The light alcohol presence is well integrated and never draws a target. An excellent choice for anyone looking for a high strength brew. A top notch Belgian that is made here. I love the maca inclusion and so far it does not show itself as a liability. This beer is light and crisp for such a high gravity brew. Somewhat crisp carbonation and a pilsner like drinkability give an easy quality to a heavy hitter of a brew. Feel is lighter than you would think but it's not a session ale by any stretch unless you plan to test your limits. A super dry and quenching beer that will have you drinking way too fast if you don't watch out.

Had at wfm on tap- served in a nonic tumbler. Poured a clear golden orange color with one finger of head, meager retention and good swathes of lacing.
Smell is typical of the style- sweet candi sugar, grainy pilsner malt and some peppery yeast.
Tastes good- candi sugar dominates, with peppery and grainy notes, some mild hop bitterness up front and a sweet finish.
Mouthfeel is good- medium full bodies with moderate carbonation.
Good tripel, nothing special though.
