Pours a cloudy, gold color. 2/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong yeast, strong floral notes, hint of hop, and slight citrus. Fits the style of a Tripel. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong yeast, strong floral notes, hint of hop, slight citrus, slight coriander, hint of alcohol, and a hint of earthy malt. Overall, decent, mild, but a little earthy for my taste.

Cold bottle served in a wine glass.

Appearance: beautiful golden straw color with a full white head of foam. Clear and bubbly.

Nose: pears, Belgian yeast, malty sweetness, minor hops character

Taste: follows the nose but more of the classic Belgian yeast. Very taste.

Overall: I actually thought this was more of a "Imperial saison" style. The carbonation was pretty high but that's not a bad thing. I really enjoyed this offering.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass.

Appearance: pours a thick 2+" white head that drops slowly with a great deal of lacing. Color is light orange with lots of sediment in suspension and tons of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: sweet, yeasty bread, coriander, floral
Mouthfeel: medium body, prickly carbonation followed by astringency on the tongue and throat.
Flavor: sweet bread, banana, coriander, cinnamon, a bit of raisin, a definite lingering bitterness as the hops move from an initial floral to a finish of citrus rind.
Overall: well done, with an interesting balance between the sweet, spicy and bitter flavors.

Pours an effervescent & chill hazed honey color with 2 fingers of ivory colored head. Some floaties, stays effervescent, nice head retention& lacing

S: Pears & apple blossoms, honeysuckle as well

T: Follows the nose with some honey crisp apple &pineapple up front, pretty dry as well. More orchard fruit, then a touch of dirty yeast (Brett I presume?), but only a touch, dryness also as this warm, a little bit of apricot over-ripe pear. Finishes fruity, with a whisper of citrus with just a bit of honey crisp apple & candi-sugar, a little grapefruit as well

MF: Light/medium body, firm carbonation, a little booze warmth as well

The 9.0 ABV is well hidden, a pretty nice stab at the style, pretty drinkable. On the edge of greatness & well worth a try. The warmer this gets, the better
