As soon as you smell this beer, you realize how amazing it could be. The immediate honeycomb scent is forthright and the taste is amazing. The honeycomb taste makes an untraditional tripel, but this beer will blow your mind. Share with a friend because it is sweet, but worth it.

Probably would have enjoyed this if I split it with someone. For one person, it becomes too sweet. Still enjoyed it, but became cloying towards the end of the bottle.

Pretty solid tripel to style. Carb is bright. Body has the right malt bill for consistency. It's a little boozy, but not harsh. The honey is the showcase. You taste the honey as a wildflower honey that you would get raw from a local farm. That's the most intriguing aspect of this beer. The yeast profile is overly fruity, but that's standard for this style. The banana presence doesn't overpower, which helps.

sometimes american made belgian styles are just terrible, really off balanced and with weird yeast complexions that are offensive to the belgian beers the mimic. not this one though, wow is this one good. on tap it looks clear super light yellow, no extra grain weight at all. the head is creamy white and tall. i smell the honey, but the beer isnt sweet as most in the style, its more gummy and polleny than anything else, and the honey is a nice contrast to the candy sugar these usually show so much of. its really mild in flavor, delicate almost, insane its as strong as it is, you would simply never know it. carbonation is really high too, which i think this style needs to not get sweet and too long in the finish. i love what the honey does, sweetening it up just a little but adding a real summery earthiness to it, while distinguishing it from the belgian examples. one of the better american made belgian beers ive had in awhile, i think its real underrated here, and a beer worth trying. excellent this time of year, nice as it warms, and just a clever brew all up. perennial is awesome.
