[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a clear pale orange with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that diminished in a matter of seconds, leaving nothing behind and having no lacing to speak of.

The aroma was very mild of pale grain malt and a mild Brett yeast with hints of green apple, banana, plum, pineapple, a light vinous scent and a touch of spice.

The taste was sweet and fruity throughout, progressing slightly with a moderate yeast presence, a mild tartness and a hint of alcohol at the end. The flavor lasted only a short while after the swallow, being somewhat sweet, fruity and lightly tart.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a very soft carbonation.

Overall I was expecting bit more from this brew, although the taste was pleasant it seemed to be a watered down version of a Wild Belgian Ale...

Served in a cervoise at Tap House - Des Plaines.

Another Tap House LoF offering today. Lots of rubber chickens...how apropos. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger or so of dirty white foam. The nose comprises pluot juice (it's pretty plummy, but I assume it's the eponymous pluot), Belgian candi sugar, light clove, and a touch of sweet biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, the pluot taking the leaad, followed by a strong current of sweet biscuit laden with clove, black pepper, and light cinnamon. The body is a stolid medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a pretty solid flavored tripel, though one that let's the flavoring dictate terms to the tripel base (it doesn't really hurt the proceedings here, I'm just saying).

A: This poured a clear gold with almost no head.
S: It smelled like kiwi and apricots, with some wild honey and peach.
T: It tasted like sweet apricot and peach and kiwi, with some honey and cantaloupe. It had a clean tropical aftertaste.
M: It was oily with some carbonation. Nice smooth body.
D: This was a great unique beer, with delicious tropical scent and taste. The body was nice, and the finish was smooth, with well hidden alcohol. So it was easy to drink. Quality brew.
