12 oz bottle. Pours golden with a short lived white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, lemongrass, pale malt, pears, apples and yeast. Body is full and crisp. Taste is citrusy hops, lemon zest, spices, biscuit malt, ripe fruit and alcohol. Finish is long, bitter and spicy. Nice take on tripel.

Bottle: Poured an hazy amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of fruity ester with light peppery yeast and sweet malt is quite nice. Taste is a nice balanced mix between some sweet malt with notes of peppery yeast and fruity ester and a dry finish. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very good interpretation of the style and nice level of complexity.

Im sampling a 12 oz bottle poured into a snifter at cellar temperature. The beer pours a bright clear golden hue with minimal bleached white head foaming up and quickly fading to a minimal edge layer.
Aroma is white grapes and some grain, with a decent hit of booze mixed in to boot. Not a very complex or robust nose, and the more sniffs I take the more the booze is evident.
First sip reveals a light body with almost no carbonation. Texture is smooth with just a little stickiness on my lips after each sip.
Flavor is similar to nose advertising and is typical tripel notes.
Light grainy malt, some white grape notes and other light fruitiness, followed by some peppery booze that is slightly bitter at the end of each sip.
The booze is a little warm on each swallow which makes this a sipping beer,
I find the beer enjoyable and tasty, not overly complex but good. It isnt an outstanding tripel, but it certainly isnt flawed either. Worth a purchase if you like the style.
