4.22/5 rDev +14.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Clear golden orange. Tight, champagne-like tiny bubbles produce a smallish white head with decent lacing.
Aroma: Vanilla, floral, fruity. Alcohol is suprisingly subtle. Nicely aromatic.
Taste: Moderate body, crisp carbonation that stays around. Mildly sweet a nice change from the sweeter Belgians out there. Slight medicinal note from the phenols. Fruitiness from pineapple and plum? Hops bitternes is minimal. Clean, dry finish. Alcohol shows up more as the beer warms, and gives the familiar pleasant warmth. This beer should become more complex with aging.
Very tasty! A good competitor for Weyerbacher's Merry Monks.
A dangerously drinkable beer at 10%. I would like to put a few of these away for cellaring. A good offering from River Horse!
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.
Cloudy gold with 1 finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Light carbonation.
Caramel, banana, booze, and clove.
Huge clove spiciness, banana bread, and booze. Some caramel notes in there.
Light bodied, oily, warming, spicy, and somewhat cloying.
I need a Westmalle to redeem myself.

Had this one years ago. Forgot all about it and ended up with one in a variety pack. So be it. Poured it (what I used to call "Triple Horse") into a snifter. Amber-orange coloring, about a finger of head, little-to-no lacing.
Smells like a cold hot toddy (bet you didn't see that coming). Clove, citrus, honey; smells sweeter than most tripels.
"Yeah?" the old man at the back of the room asks.
"Well, maybe," I reply, "but I'm no expert on Belgian things."
Taste doesn't quite live up to the smell. Oh well. A little syrupy as it goes down. The 10% ABV is well-hidden.
Not spectacular, but decent.
