Growler filled at Whole Foods poured into a snifter the same day.
Appearance: Dark amber, with a small off-white head that dissipates somewhat quickly. Leaves behind a fine lacing.
Smell: Lots of peach, belgian yeast. Peach smell might be more like dried peaches, actually smells a bit like funnel cake if thats possible. I love how this smells.
Taste: Thats...different. A bit hot. Definitely peachy, perhaps a bit of tartness from that. Not sure it tastes much like a tripel, but it isn't bad. I get some oak too. No coconut though. Aftertaste is a bit alcoholic. As I get to the end of it, I get some of the "cream" promised before I filled the growler (I was told it tasted like peaches and cream).
Mouthfeel: A little weak on the carbonation. Works fine with the flavor though.
Overall: A pretty good beer. Not my favorite, but it's an interesting flavor and I'm glad I tried it. I'll probably share the growler.
Serving type: growler

portion of a 750ml bottle served in a Belgian snifter.
Pours the color of honey; hazy.
Aroma: spot on given the "Tropical Tripel": there's a substantial note of coconut, pineapple, citrus and other tropical fruits plus a Belgian tripel in the background. A subtle trace of oak.
Flavor: the base ale makes a stronger appearance in tasting where it is nicely balanced by the fruits and a hint of coconut. Appropriately sweet but eventually leaves a mildly bitter aftertaste.
Serving type: bottle
