16 oz pint on tap at Little Town in Union Square.

Poured a very clear soft gold with almost no head. The lacing was disappointing as there was no retention on the glass.

Smell was not overly fragrant. Some citrus notes but mostly floral, grain, yeast, and clove.

The taste was surprising for a tripel. Lightly carbonated, some malt sweetness, that dash of clove but a generous heaping of hops up front (which was rather pleasant).

Quit enjoyable tripel. The 10% alcohol was barely evident. This is a well done hop forward beer that went down a little too easy.
