On-tap at Riders Club Cafe in San Clemente. On to the beer:

Looks paler orange with hues of yellow. The lace it whips up is in solid quantity. In the nose, it is very sweet with lots of candied fruits and a lashing of bubblegum. Like the nose, its taste is sweet. First comes candi sugar, then bubblegum, candied apricot and a kiss of clove round it out. A little of the beer's alcohol is felt, giving off a peppery sensation. Medium bodied, slightly smooth, low carbonation....I think some extra carbonation would help balance out the beer, which is already pretty tasty.

Nice Belgian style tripel to come out of Palos Verdes.
