3.45/5 rDev -10.9%
Super firm cork that comes out with a surprisingly soft pop. Poured from the 375ml bottle into a chalice. The carbonation is evident when pouring with a frothy head forming but subsiding quickly. The yellow color is darker than I had expected for a triple, but still fitting.
The smells are somewhat muted. A bit of yeast character is what first comes through, with clove, a powdery yeast smell, and something else I just can’t put my finger on.
Taste is straightforward triple. It’s interesting to taste this knowing what splinter gold is like, as you can see the similarities. Yeast character is quite dominant with this brew.
Mouthfeel is light and carbonated, a bit more carbonation that needed I believe. I swirled it out quite a bit actually.
My take away? A solid triple, but I can’t help but wish it were different having had the Splinter Gold. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to truly appreciate this beer for what it is, as I think I’ll always wish it was the Splinter Gold and not just a triple.

3.63/5 rDev -6.2%
Appearance: 1/2 inch head, clear, straw yellow in color, high carbonation
Smell: apples and hay
Taste: honey, and Belgian spices, apples, and hay.
Mouthfeel: sweet with a funkiness, light bodied with high carbonation
Overall: An above average triple with nice apple and hay flavorings. Tasty, but I have had better in the style. Certainly worth a try, but I will reach for other favorites.
