3.83/5 rDev -5.7%
11 ounce pour - $9.00 at Taco Mac in East Roswell, Georgia.
Appearance: Served up a clouded, golden body with a couple inches of white, thick foam that lasts (and lasts).
Smell: Lightly bready, lightly grainy pils, wheat malts. Clove buds preserved in alcohol, notes of grassiness and citrus popping with pith, also subtler orchards fruits, maybe a little lychee.
Taste: Pale malts, maybe some lightish wheat with a touch of overall breadiness. It starts candi sugar sweet but it instantly begins drying away, particularly as the hop bitterness kicks in. Displays a similar fruity melange in the middle, same as the original, but with a larger citrus element. Cracked cloves. Peppery alcohol tries to hit you with a hammer, but the other various flavors try to keep it at bay. The other fruit flavors dim down as the bitter, warming finish takes hold.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Surprisingly soft mouthfeel.
Overall: An ample, hopped-up tripel, though, I would've been just as content with the standard tripel.

4.16/5 rDev +2.5%
Growler filled at DeCicco's Brewster, NY during their Allagash event .
Pours near clear, dull yellowy amber, under a lasting fluffy off white head. Leaves more then ample spots and strands of lacing and a tiny bubble film.
Pepper, yeast and ripe fruits on the nose.
Tasty tripel thats on the hoppy side. Nice amounts of more ripe fruits, moderate pepper, lime and Belgian yeast notes all the way through. Dry finish. Real nice Americanized version of the style.
Happy to get to try this on draft.

3.69/5 rDev -9.1%
A: pours a clear golden yellow with a finger of white head that fades into a thin layer with a little lacing.
S: Belgian spices and candy sugar up front followed by spicy, lemony, and herbal hop aromas.
T: spices here as well followed by sweet breads. The hops kick in with grassy, herbal, peppery flavors. The finish is slightly bitter.
M: medium-light body with lowish carbonation, this beer doesn't have too thick of a body but is a bit watery.
O: a pretty decent hoppy tripel overall. It's main flaw is being under-attenuated, but otherwise is good.
