Bottle at home. Clear copper pour with an off-white head and visible carbonation. Honey, caramel, Belgian yeast, spices, some floral notes. High carbonation, medium body and a spicy sweet aftertaste.

Appearance: Pours reddish amber, nice frother white head that resolves to fine lace

Smell: Hint of hay/barnyard, malt and plenty of yeast, over ripe apples/pears, fruity esters

Taste: Pleasant fruit forward (apple/pear/cider like), nice malty throughout without becoming syrupy, bready, very mild hop like astringency with adequate carbonation

Mouthfeel: Creamy, Adequate carbonation and hops to prevent from becoming too malty

Drinkability: Pleasant, easily quaffed tripel with well hidden alcohol.

Half-moonman proves to be a total jerk as this is one of the worst gushers I've opened. Pours a hazy amber with dense two finger thick off-white head, settles slowly to a half inch with a sheet of clumpy lace halfway down the glass. Smell: caramel apple, pear, graham cracker, pepper note. Taste: soft sweet red apple, cooked pear, dried sugared apricot, herbal and peppery notes. Alright.
