Enjoyed from the 22 iz bottle. This tripel pours a golden honey colored amber, with a nice frothy white head of dissipating bubbles that finally rests to a thick ring and soapy layer with great looking lacing. Nose of sweet light honey malts, fresh grated ginger, clove and perhaps a dash of nutmeg, strong alcohol, and light caramel. Flavors are up front sweet, tons of sweet, honey and clove collide in the mid and back of this ale with more sweetness than you can shake a mash paddle at. Light hops and ginger come to the rear of the taste giving some needed roundness to this ale. Slick, smooth, highly carbonated mouth feel makes for an easy drinker while the aftertaste has a strong alcohol flavor that is a little over the top. Love most brews from this company, this one is solid, yet a bit overly expressive on the sweet side which is amazing to hear from me since I love sweet brews.
