On tap at Max's. What a delightful beer.

Hazy yellow with a dense, white head with excellent retention and gorgeous lacing, this is a great-looking tripel. The nose is wonderful. Yeasty, spicy and with a nice herbaceous lemony character, fresh cut grass and dry pale malt with a touch of honey, this is very enjoyable. The palate has a nice lemon-like hop character, a very nice herbal character, moderate yeast (pepper and other spices) and a crisp, clean malt profile. Drying and spicy on the finish, this beer is light in body, crisply carbonated and thoroughly refreshing. The ABV is very well hidden too. Highly recommended.

I had this on-tap at Max's. Served in a Max's tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden/orange with a finger of fluffy white head that sticks around pretty well and leaves some lacing on the glass.

Smell: Herbal and yeasty, slight sweetness from the malt. There is a slight citrus note that shows up behind the herbal yeast.

Taste: Herbal notes dominate, just as they did in the smell. This reminds me of a strong, hoppy wit. MIldly fruity with a bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I enjoyed the herbal notes in this beer. I thought it was light and easy to drink given the abv. I would have it again.

On tap at Churchkey.

Pours a semi-hazed golden color with a thin white head that falls quickly to a collar.

The nose carries some light spice notes and a faint bit of stone fruits, maybe some peach and apricot. There is a light breadiness underscoring the yeast notes, and this continues through to te flavor. The flavor also ha some light herbal notes to accompany the slight fruit character of the nose.

Body is light and somewhat effervescent with a dry, semi-bitter finish. Often times it feels like the mouthfeel is one of the better portions of Brian's beers, and this one is no exception. Very tasty overall.

On cask at Max's during their Belgian fest.

The beer pours a hazy gold color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is attractive, as I get considerable honey, orange and light clove in this one. The flavor profile replicates the nose, and it struck me that this beer is pretty similar to the regular stateside beer from Stillwater. Mouthfeel is very soft and smooth, with the low carbonation working very well in this one. Alchol is well disguised, and the finish is long with a hint of ginger at the the end.

Nothing extraordinary, but another solid beer from Stillwater nonetheless.
