Poured into a flute glass on New Years Eve. 2011.

A- golden hazy appearance witha thick frothy head.

S- yeast, citrus, bread, White wine.

T- fruitiness, citrus, yeast, malt, and subtle white wine esters.

M- sharp carbonation. Bitter sweet finish.

O- I enjoyed this beer and it was a good choice on my part to have it on new years. It was my first Tripel and I'm looking forward to try more beer of this style.

A: pours a somewhat hazy orange-gold with a 1 1/2 finger rocky, white head, decent retention. Reduces to solid film and leaves a little bit of lacing.

S: big floral hops, yeast, citrus, banana and coriander spice

T: rish fruitiness and floral hops dominate. Nice yeastiness, citrus and a crisp, bittersweet finish. The 8.1% ABV is detectable but does not overpower the flavour.

M: medium bodied and very crisp, highly carbonated with a fantastically dry and refreshing finish.

D: Given the apparent alcohol content, I don't know how many of these I could put down in one sitting. However, this is a very pleasurable beer to drink and it offers a very nice sensory experience. A well crafted ale - highly recommended.
