Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Bottleneck says D174.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Drippy resilient lacing.

S- Belgian yeast aroma that surprisingly reminds me more of the Trappist yeast strain than your standard Belgian strain. Has more of that dark fruit and white grape must sort of aroma. Slightly boozy.

T- Taste is also more like a Trappist tripel with fruity esters abound as well as some spice, apple and pear notes and a subdued alcohol presence. And, at 10.5% ABV, you'd better be careful with it. Alcohol is insanely well masked.

M- Somewhat creamy with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- Very pleasantly surprised with this one since New Holland is usually nothing to scream about. This has become one of my favorites of theirs, second only to Dragon's Milk.

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.
