I’ve been seeing this brewery around a lot lately, but this is my first time trying it. This triple pours a slightly opaque dark golden color with a fairly small white, frothy head. The smell is a quite pleasant mixture of spices like clove, and a strong malty caramel scent, with undertones of banana as well. The taste is not quite as complex as the smell would have me believe, but there are some interesting things going on. The initial taste has some spices, maybe clove and pepper, but not as many as most Belgian triples. It has a fairly malty, heavy body for a triple and a very sweet caramel / honey flavor comes through in the aftertaste. The aftertaste also imparts a stronger hop character than is typical of Belgians, with a bitterness that is borderline Belgian IPA territory. This is not your standard triple at all. I wish it had a little more complexity with the spices and for once I actually think the malts could be toned down a little. However, it does do some interesting things here and I like how the high malt and high hop character tries to balance each other out in the aftertaste.
