Love the label. Hopefully the beer follows suit.

Pours a foggy golden yellow. Nose is mild, but the flavor is really bringing it. This is one of the better tripels I have had in quite some time. Nice mellow sweet tone with some yeasty earth tones. Aged fruits as an accent. Great balance. And, most importantly, none of that pathetic homebrew-esqe character that way too many Belgian-inspired ales seem to have.

I highly suggest this beer. This one beer will keep them on my radar for any potential future purchases. Probably could use some age on it, but it's still nice right now.

Pours a brown to slightly orange brown or rosy brown in color with a 3 finger full white head that leaves light lacing. It's translucent and resembles a tropical punch when held up to a bright light.

Fruit (from the lime zest and Motueka hops) and spice (from the Sterling) on the aroma. Definite lime, and maybe lemon, with other tropical fruit as well. Mango, and perhaps a hint of pineapple. The oak barrel comes through with just a hint of tequila.

Lime is even more clear in the taste as are both the tequila and the oak. Spectacular spice from the Sterling, but the tropical aspects of the Motueka are not as evident here as in the aroma. An overlying bitterness from the hops and the lime zest is matched by the sweet caramelly malts. The taste of alcohol is pronounced but not ovewhelming.

Moderate in body with a light sting of carbonation. Slightly drying with a bit of sticky syrup on tongue and lip, and a bit warming.

The aroma was amazing from the start, and the taste matured as the beer warmed. I like everything I've tried from Lickinghole, but this is definitely the best so far.
