On-tap at the Great Divide Tap Room. Served in a snifter.

A: Dark straw with a significant haze. Fluffy eggshell head has average retention and leaves very little lace.

S: Spicy aromas of pepper and coriander dominate. They are balanced with the sweetness of pears, and even a hint of bubblegum. A straw like malt presence sits in the background.

T: Mostly spicy, with a pepper and clove bitterness that sets up the other flavors. Sweetness is there with pear, apple and green grape. A sourdough presence brings up the rear. Finishes with a lingering combination of lemon and coriander, plus a mild alcohol warmth.

M: The body is light, and makes the beer not feel as strong as it is. Carbonation level is just about right.

D: This beer drinks much lighter than its ABV. I had to make sure I didn't down this too quickly. The beer's alcohol is well masked, which is quite the accomplishment with this much of it on hand. This is a very nice Tripel that I'm glad I had the opportunity to try.
