A: Golden color with medium-thick head. Slightly hazy.
S: Apricot, soap, straw, raisins, orange peel, and birch bark.
T: Pretty classic tripel flavors actually. Fruity up front with a nice malted hoppinness that carries through the sip.
M: Medium bodied, perfect medium carbonation, a slight oiliness.
O: I've never tasted an American beer that so perfectly captures the essence of a Belgian tripel. Delicious.

Review from 4/2011 notes. Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a hazy orange amber, lots of carbonation. Big white head and massive lacing, a beautiful presentation. Aroma of wheat, Belgian yeast and spicing and light fruit with some suggestions of orange and apple. Good body, bitter with light fruits, Belgian spicing and sweet malt. Spicy finish, which is a bit astringent, but the overall progression and flavors come together very nicely. This is a very well made and enjoyable tripel

A- a golden color with a huge fluffy head and some random patches of lacing.

S-strong bready malt character along with spicy ethol yeastiness, banana, clove, citrus peel. Well balanced.

T- the bready malt really makes this beer a very balanced beer right in the front of the palate. After that the classic belgian tripel flavors come in, as well as honey and oranges.

O- i really enjoyed this one, a great well balanced triple with some good malt presence and a citrusy brightness.
