It appears hazy gold with a small white head.

It smells of apples, pears, pepper, and sugar.

It tastes initially slightly sweet, there is a mild peppery flavor a sweet citrus flavor. In some ways it almost tastes like a Belgian style malt liquor. There is some heat from the alcohol. There is also a bit of a metallic quality to the beer.

The carbonation is moderate low.

The drinkability is ok. It is light enough to have a few glasses of it though because of the alcohol percentage it would knock you on your ass.

Overall it is an ok beer but it is a little rough around the edges. Not my favorite but it is drinkable.

P: Slightly hazed copper body with a topping if white thin milky head that fades rather fast and leaves a wet ring around the glass.

S: Starfruit, peaches, apricot preserves, pears, yellow apples, wheat grain, pineapple, artificial syrup flavoring and lime. Has almost a dairy character to it. Dry timidly musty yeast, and weeds. Aroma is dialed down.

T/M: Not like the fruity nose. It has an odd aftertaste of spoiled fruit and bitterness similar to bitting into kale. Butterscotch comes to mind for the weird after math. Artificial banana and an odd spice profile. Body is nice and sticky with a subtle dose of carbonation. Overall taste is off and cheap.

O: Not a fan of this beer but I didn't expect too much for such a cheap tripel offering. Nose is nice and body was well done. Taste is just not appealing.

Twist top bottle. Didn't realize that until about 10 minutes after this review. Weird. Haven't seen that since my Bud Light days.

A: Hardly any head or lacing. Lots of carbonation. Nice golden color. Little haziness.

S: Stinky. Almost like skunk cabbage. Smells sour. Something I've smelled before but can't quite place. Almost rotten bananas. Sour fruit. Maybe doughy? Yeah uncooked dough, I think. Little grassy. Not liking the smell at all.

T: Very light taste at first. Very spicy after. Very mild bitterness. Sweet caramel, butterscotch towards the back of the tongue. Finishes with a 9% alcohol aftertaste.

M: Very fizzy. Tingly from the carbonation. Very light-bodied. Thin.

O: Not impressed at all. Was hoping for more as this is my hometown brewery. Live about 2 minutes from it. Never been there though. First Tripel so maybe after a few more I'll come back and re-review this. Won't buy again (for now).
