Served on tap into a small snifter at Bier Station in Kansas City.

A - Cloudy apricot color with a dense, creamy two-finger head. Lingers longer than I care to wait to smell/taste, but shrinks to a healthy film after tanking a drink. Lacing is heavy, like wet snow on a windowsill.

S - Minty, but more of an herbal mint, like a fresh mint leaf. At this point I really get very little of the floral yeasty characteristic of tripels. Enticing but strange.

T - There's the tripel. Boozy, yeasty and an inferred sweetness from the mint. However, it remains more herbal than candy-like mint. Some banana phenols make an appearance on the back of the taste. Some bitterness as well.

M - A little syrupy, like high-ABV booze.

Overall the best word I can use is strange. But in a clearly positive way. If this was an everyday offering, I probably wouldn't buy it all the time, but as a limited brew its worth coming back to.

This beer poured out as a hazy golden yellow color with an averaged white head on top. The smell of the beer was of Belgian yeast and grains. The taste is what really makes this beer special. The flavors of mint come through in the beer from start to finish, it's not nearly as strong as the Black & Red from DfH. The flavors are subtle but still very refreshing. The mouthfeel was on the lighter side. Overall i liked this beer, mainly because of the flavor. The mint really worked well here and I'm really glad I got to try this one.
