pulled a bottle as an extra in a trade, thanks Pedaldownthefoothill

I thought I'd chill this down a bit, so I threw it in the freezer. Completely forgot about it. Today, a day later, I suddenly remembered and pulled it out in a panic. What better time to try it, right?

Now THAT's a cold beer. Ha, it has a thickness to the body that maybe is a result of its deep freeze? It loosened up quickly enough. It's got the haziness of a belgian tripel, smells a little like pineapples behind the belgian yeast, and boozy. Really nice.

3.81/5  rDev -1.8%

Appearance: pours with a slight head on even an aggressive pour. The color is a light orange color with a cloudy body. Active carbonation is negligible.

Smell: Spices, white pepper, and banana warm on the front. Peppercorns, straw, and bready yeast debut on the body. Wheat and belgian yeast accents are prevalent. Nothing overpowering any other accents, well rounded and very well executed.

Taste: Oranges, citrus, and barley open up to the drinker. Peppercorns, spices, and leafy greens really blitz the palate and shine bright. Full bodied cloves with compliments of ripe bananas show up on the back end and ride into the finish. Some pepper and lingering yeast dance on the palate. Slight sting of booze on the finish as well.

Mouthfeel: The booze is felt but only on the finish and even then its nothing offensive. Creamy malts, and interesting hop notes keep the drinker going back.

Overall: One of the better tripels I've had from an american brewery. New Holland always does a good job of executing their styles. The booze is well integrated and many traditional tones shine through.

A - Deep yellow body, rocky white head excellent lacing.

S - Moderate intensity clove and banana, light leather/tobacco notes as well.

T - Moderate-high intensity spice/fruit notes.

M - Medium-light bodied and refreshing. Solid dash of boozy warmth.

O - A standard text book tripel, not positive why it's 50% more expensive than other text book American made triples... but I digress.
