3.65/5  rDev -8.8%

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.

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.
