22oz. bomber poured into a snifter. Bottle #249 of 250. Thanks to clvand0 for bringing this rare beer to our tasting. It pours a hazy orange-yellow color with half a finger of head. Not much lacing going on. The smell is spicy, lots of pepper, which I like. There's some citrusy character as well. The taste starts with more of that citrus. Lots of lemon going on. There's some spice in the middle, but the finish is just a little cloyingly sweet. The mouthfeel is nice for a tripel, and the drinkability is good as well. A decent tripel.

Sampled at the brewery during a "beer school" gathering, so, although listed as retired, is back in production. Blackstone has done a nice job of matching the style. Belgian candy sugar sweetness with bright malt. A touch of classic Belgian funkyness at the top, with a cotton candy finish.

Bottle number 249 of 250. Thanks to clvand0 for the opportunity. The beer departed the bottle a hazy, slightly golden yellow color with a small head that falls to a ring the beer. the nose reminds me of a souped up Belgian White ale. Coriander, some orange peel, slight bit of banana, a peppery quality and a decent fruity sweetness. The flabor was nice, with a good spicey peppery character over top of a lemony.orangey citrus sweetness. The feel was moderate to thick with a light carbonation. I found the beer to be very smooth and easy driniking. Very enjoyable. Its a shame that its not available beyond the anniversary batch.

Had this on tap at the brewpub. Talking with the owner, it seems that they will not be brewing this one again - this was done for their 10th anniversary only. OG = 1.077, IBU = 25. Pours a yellow color with some cloudiness and a white head that sticks around and leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma has a spicy character with a hint of malts. Mostly spices in the nose. The flavor has a lot of the spiciness that the nose had, but it also has a pepper character to go along with it. Very smooth. Finishes with a slight bite from the pepper/spice. Very good. I'll have this one again. Actually, I bought a bottle to take home with me.
