Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served an orange yellow colored brew with only a tiny white head floating atop the brew. The small head fades rather fast to leave only a light level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is fruity and sweet with notes of biscuit and doughy bread. The fruity aromas are of banana, apricot, peach and some apple. Mixed with these aromas are a lighter yeasty and spice smell as well as a little bit of earthy smell.
Taste – The taste starts out with a mix of a bready flavor as well as a strong fruit showing. The fruity flavors are all quite light (in color) in nature with apricot and peach the strongest, but mixed with other flavors of orange and tangerine. A banana flavor comes to the tongue more toward the middle and at the end. The banana flavor is accompanied by some sweeter honey flavors as well as notes of coriander and pepper. Toward the end the spice flavors grow more intense and are joined by a lighter alcohol boozy flavor, which leaves a warming and fruity spiced flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly below average side for a 9% abv triple with a carbonation level that is a bit on the lower side. The thinner body was quite nice for all the fruit flavors of the beer as well as the drinkability, although a little more carbonation may have been a bit for fitting for the flavors.
Overall – A quite enjoyable triple with sweeter fruit flavors and just enough boozy, spicy and bready flavors to balance out all the fruit. Quite tasty.
