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.

big thanks to OlavZipser for this bottle and the properglassware to go with.
a - brew poured a murky yellow orange with nary any head. hardly any bubbling either...looks to be flat, but sipping the beer reveals it is carbbed,.
s - nose is subtle, but classic to style with bubblegum and candy and banana. clove and an almost oak smell tickle the nose as well.
t - really nice and crisp. feels very organic. lush flavors or bubblegum and banana. really nice candied sugar.
m - the water on these brews is the highlight. they all have such a fresh organic vibe to the feel...really enjoyable and crisp. feels like really quality ingredients.
o - and thus ends my trip around the world with lickinghole creek craft brewery. i watched them build the brewery on instagram and made some friends locally who helped me check out all 4 bottles they had for sale, this being the last. i have to say, i'm impressed. lots of promise, not a bad beer in the bunch, this one being one of my favs...maybe short pump was better? they all carry a very natrual organic feel and use what feels like super tasty water...similar to HF (but not at all). this is a great tripel. a bit on the candied sweet side, but super enjoyable and an easy drinker. i'm a fan and look forward to trying more from this brewery (and even revisiting some of these)

A: Cloudy, golden-orange, with a fat finger of off-white head. Lacing was minimal. There was a small amount of sediment.
S: Sweet and tart fruit notes. Spicy, citrus hops appear with the second whiff.
T: Malt is overwhelmingly sweet, even strong by tripel standards. There's a bit of fruitiness, especially starfruit, plus some pineapple. The label mentioned citrus, but the bitterness of citrus rind is all I tasted. The finish was long and very bitter, but with a little spiciness.
M: Moist, with fair carbonation.
O: Hoppy for a tripel, but more bitter than the tangy I was hoping for based on the label's description. OK overall, but I've certainly had better. I'll stick to more traditional tripels in the future.
