look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle into a wine glass. "Vintage 08AA" printed on the bottle.

Appearance: Free pour yields a tiny 1/4 inch frothy white head that immediately dissipates into foam around the edges of the glass. Pours a nice opaque orange. No lacing, but decent legs.

Smell: First impression: grape and some funk, with mild, indistinct fruity esters in the background. As it warms, a slightly sour smell and some Belgian yeast come out. The esters develop more distinguishable character; pear, plum, orange. There's a mild booziness as well. Ultimately quite a bit going on in the nose.

Taste: First sip has a big hit of orange, spices, and Belgian yeast. Sugary but not cloying. Some of the funk and sourness from the nose are present as well. There's tartness, and some apple, peppermint and licorice notes going on. This is a fairly deep tripel, and rather sublimely balanced. No alcohol flavor is present whatsoever.

Mouthfeel: On the fuller side of medium-bodied, with a faint juiciness and mild carbonation. The sugary feel sometimes approaches chalky, but it's not distracting or unpleasant.

Drinkability: Very good. No alcohol burn at all, and lots of flavor without being overwhelming. Would happily have had several more, and will buy this beer again.

I was very impressed with Kerberos Tripel. It doesn't really have the refined subtlety of a top tripel from Belgium, but it brings an abundance of big flavors in expert balance.

Review from 4/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a nice cloudy orange color, small off-white dissipating head. Light and dark fruit and Belgian spice aroma. Belgian spice, fruit and light malt up front. Lightly spicy tripel finish. A decent American tripel. Medium bodied. I enjoyed drinking this. I'm Flying Dog isn't distributed in Washington any more.
