12 oz bottle, exp date illegible

Pours a golden yellow with suspended sediment. Small head with decent lacing. Smells like skunky barley with a hint of pepper. A little citrus as well. Taste explodes on the tongue with crisp malt and some hop bitter, then fades into spices, notably pepper and clove. Not amazing but very tasty. Has a powdery finish.

This is my first tripel, so I'm not sure how this fits the type. A peppery ale that feels lighter than it's content and ABV suggest. Give it a try.

Pours an opaque gold from a bottle into my trappist glass. Smell is sweet dark fruit and banana nut bread. Taste is mild up front with less sweetness than the smell would indicate. Surprisingly dry across the middle and a bold boozy finish. Aftertaste is disarmingly short. Warm boozy feeling in the belly. Very drinkable for a beer that presents itself as heavier than it really is. Good. I'll buy it again. Less than 2 bucks for a 12 oz. single. Bargain for a Tripel.
