Couldn't find this anywhere in PA leave it to Vintage Estate to have one bottle left.

A - Clear look deep yellow with mild orange color. Head is minimal just a 1/4 inch of head that fades to nothing.
S - Apple cider like smell with mild lemon and fruity yeasts. Not too heavy in the alcohol it smells rather balanced.
T - Well their really isn't much to it slightly bitter a touch of yeast but really it just tastes of some fruity esters and mild lemon.
M - For the ABV its pretty amazing like a amped up blonde ale no character but no ethanol.

Overall it's a smooth simple triple like ale (not really Belgium in nature) that wasn't offensive or complex. A really easy going ale.

Not a bad tripel. Good sweet flavor with a small alcohol burn.

12 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled on 7/22/2014. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, banana, clove, pepper, light bubblegum, wheat, bread, candi sugar, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and pale/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, banana, clove, pepper, light bubblegum, wheat, bread, candi sugar, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, banana, clove, pepper, light bubblegum, wheat, bread, candi sugar, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast and pale/bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Tripel style. All around good complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast and pale/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
