Bottle purchased at BJ's in Burbank, CA.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, white grape juice, and fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, white grape juice, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with juicy fruit aspects that come across well in both the smell and taste.

A: Light orange in color with very little head.

S: Lots of orange and other citrus in the nose.

T: Hoppy, citric, a bit bitter, but pleasantly so, with some typical tripelesque spices.

M: Light bodied, but flavorful. A great beer for summer. Typical tripel carbonation.

O: A really good beer, perhaps not the best tripel (certainly not characteristic of the style), but really tasty. Definitely worth a try.

Pours a clear golden with a huge white head. Aromas of grain, and some vinegar. Taste begins with tart, almost green apple flavor, then some phenolics. After that is some light cracker. The finish is dry, but acidic. Mouthfeel is average. Overall a good tripel, a bit more tart and funky than most.

Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: Pours mostly clear golden amber color with tons of off white carbonation. The head sticks around for the whole pour.

Smell: Mild Belgian yeast spice with some citrusy hops. There is a strong presence from the grain.

Taste: Light and very herbal. Lots of spice from the Belgian yeast. I'm getting some aged hops. The sweetness balances everything out. The hop bitterness builds through the finish.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with tons of carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I thought this was pretty good and easy to drink. A good combination of flavors.

The beer is straw yellow with a soapy white head. The aroma brings tart citrus, hay, funk, floral hops. Smells nice. Tasty flavor. Complex and intriguing. Tart citrus and funk with a hop finish. Well done. Interesting and unusual. this one got my attention. I would have this again.
