On tap at the Flying Pig,,,
Appears a hazy gold with a decent white head in the tulip glass. Sticky lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of citrusy, peachy, bready tripel yeast that is kicking butt.
Taste is of the same aromas with a touch of honey mixed with a small amount of spices.
Mouthfeel is slightly spicy with some sugary citrus notes sticking around the palate.
Slight alcohol presence is detected, only drawing slightly from the overall enjoyment of this wonderfully done American Tripel.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from batch #203.
Appearance: Deep yellow almost honey colored with slight amber hues. Nice two to three finger choppy cream colored head that held on and left a nice lace on the glass throughout the drink.
Smell: Yeasty with apricots, hints of cherries, earthy tones, hints of citrus. All and all very complex in the nose.
Taste: Quick hit of sweetness upfront, followed by a complex mix of fruit, heavy apricot and strange plum like flavors. Followed up quickly by yeasty earth tones and just the slightest hop kick. Clean finish, lingering just long enough to make you want another taste. Slight alcohol warming in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium carbonation, easy drinking especially for a tripel. Smooth and enjoyable.
Overall: One of the best tripels I've ever tried. Really look forward to trying future batches of this one to see if and how it changes.

DATE TASTED: March 4, 2014... GLASSWARE: Affligem chalice... OCCASION: going out with a bang before a sober Lenten journey begins... APPEARANCE: hazy active light amber body; thin, uneven snow white head; random tracings... AROMA: intense orange peel, coriander, slight raisin, and melon--complex and inviting...PALATE: fizzy, medium-bodied; cutting, warm aftertaste that is also refreshing early...TASTE: sweet honey puckers the lips; soft herbal textures round the flavor into an extremely pleasant experience; startlingly unassuming for a tripel... OVERALL: elevational! By the bottle's end, I was hoping for more...clean, floral hops sift between the stronger citric presence...a fitting Fat Tuesday celebratory beer, round, complex and alcoholic enough to be a party in itself...
