Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Perennial Artisan Ales branded short stemmed tulip/snifter

Pours a hazy deep golden with amber accents capped by a fluffy two finger bright white head. Slightly above average retention, multiple thin strands of lacing apparent on the sides of the glass. Unique nose: fruity, floral notes, Belgian yeast, and wisps of alcohol. Opens with fruity bubblegum, floral accents joined by dense Belgian yeast midpalate. Some strong alcohol notes surface that are quickly mellowed by light honey which carries through to a smooth finish. Light side of medium bodied, fairly high level of carbonation with some effervescence that is balanced with hints of syrup in the mostly silky smoothness. An excellent variation on a traditional Belgian-style tripel. Another great brew from Perennial.

This is a tripel and it basically tastes like one. The pour is a dark gold (SRM 9), almost no head, not much lacing. Mouthfeel medium bodied. Taste starts sweet, ends sweet, with an alcohol gag at the finish. Not enough maltiness to bury the booze. Probably due to the use of honey as an adjunct. No acid. No hop nothin'. Aroma has a hint of honey, maybe a trace of coriander, or maybe that's something I just wanted. Very strong, sweet tripel, but not exceptional.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled June 2013.

Interesting color. Very orange bronze and deep, with some shining clarity, but head barely forms half a finger of creamy white. Manages to leave a simple good puck with noticeable carbonation on the sides of the glass. Beer has a real unique color, but looks quite lifeless.

Mild sensing honey, and plenty of candi sucrose. Smells incredibly sweet and sugary. Not much else going on here.

Palate comes with luckily not as much sweetness. Slight fussel notes of heat, but not too boozy on taste. Crisp and light bodied with not much thick malt presence. Slightly wet, but manages to hold up, but also makes for easier drinkability. A little soda like carbonation and slightly medicinal flavor on the finish as well.

Overall it's not bad, but doesn't come off as anything really memorable for a tripel.
