Fine, fine example of this Belgian style.

Beautiful microbead head; perfect levels of carbonation. Hugely impressive balance--no harsh alcohols. Spiciness mellows into hop presence/white grape/pear. Great yeast choice.

Try this beer with their local cheese plate when you visit. Otherwise, let's hope they bottle in the near future.

Wow. What a pleasant, taste-bud-zinging surprise. Belgium beware, these guys are gonna beat you at your own style!
A- Shimmery gold hue, practically glows. While unfiltered, it's a fairly clear beer, no obvious sediment or floaters. Head is small, but fluffy.
S- Mmmm. Fruity esters, field flowers, hint of orangy citrus.
T- Deceivingly smooth for 8.7%, gorgeously balanced, the Belgian yeast is clearly present but not overpowering. The biscuity taste of the malt is right there, but quickly gives way to a nice hoppy finish that is not overdone for the style. Clean finish, doesn't linger too long, makes you wanna take another gulp!
O- Okay, though not always my favorite style, this pour was one of the most enjoyable Tripels I have had. Ever. Fresh, true-to-style, and definitely worth making the pilgramage to Schilling for. I could have easily devoured 2 or 3 if not for the 1-hour drive home!
