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.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Firestone Walker snifter.

A: Pours an orangish amber, very hazy, with a half-finger of white head and low visible carbonation.

S: Not a lot of aroma overall. When you really dig in, there's nice sweet fruity yeast esters (apple, and banana to a lesser extent) and a bready malt background. But it sure doesn't punch you in the face.

T: Fruity Belgian yeast esters (apple and banana, with hints of strawberry and bubblegum), yeast and bready malts, and some ethanol sweetness right before the swallow. Sweetness in the hang.

M: Medium body, carbonation sensation on the low side. The alcohol is fairly noticeable, especially given the relatively tame ABV (for style) that's listed.

O: The alcohol presence detracts here - it ends up taking away from the other flavors. It's not an offensive beer, and perhaps worth a try, but honestly I didn't find it to be a particularly good tripel.
