It wasn't bad and yet it didn't meet my expectations. I drank it but can say I won't get it again.

great tasting tripel that sneaks up; at 10% this can be deadly

I am from NJ and could not image a smooth 10% ABV to come from Ewing, NJ but River Horse does a nice job here. Beer has a nice smooth taste. Appearance is very good and has a great appearance. Mouthfeel shows the Belgium style ale. Went down very smooth. Would purchase again.

Saw this on the shelf with 4 varieties of River Horse, went for the high test, let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a very sweet malt aroma with some spice. Pours to a translucent deep orange with a wispy head that fades fast. On the taste the first thing that hits is the mouthfeel, this brew is syrup thick. On the taste there is a sweet fruitiness with citrus and banana esters. Consistent taste throughout then the real flavor comes through in the aftertaste: a little bite of very slightly bitterness mostly tart and a sense of the ABV that this brew packs but it still remains very hidden. An extremely smooth drinker, too smooth though in that it doesn't have much going on and that with a 10% ABV is a stealth bender.
