On Tap at The Sidecar Bar

A- Served in a ten ounce portion, nineteen looks on the yellow side with some straw color thrown in as well. A nice frothy white head up top that leaves minor sticks but retains rather lengthy.

S- I get a nice dose of bready Belgian yeast up front, with some banana and pear mixed in. A nice earthy hop addition with some pale malt backing.

T- Taste is bold with hops and yeast trying to steal each others thunder. They both pop out rather big with some earth from the hop variety used, slight citrus with pear and a bit of banana. In the end the yeast is the clear winner.

M- Pretty much dead on medium with a crisp carb bite that stings the tounge a bit, yet the insane amount of taste thwarts that. Pretty bitter for a saison, this is on the American side of things.

D- This is a tasty beer, it delves in some american style hop methods with a triple backing. If your looking for a Belgian type triple, you will find it but with a bunch of hops. I think i could do a bomber of this if i put forth the effort.

Silver foil capped bomber bottled April 2012 into standard pint.

A: hazy straw colored got about a finger of frothy white head that fell to a fantastic cap of froth.

S: strong pale malt smell with a bit of mild hops keeping it from being sweet. A bit of spice and very light citrus notes almost like lemongrass. But mostly big rich pale malts. Not as much belgian funk as I was expecting, only a slight yeast smell.

T: Opens malty and rich, slight spicy notes. Finishes with some citrus and a good hard yeast flavor almost like a bread starter.

M: chewey and pretty heavy. Good stuff.

O: my first trippel, had a couple strongs and dubbels. I like this despite it being a lighter beer (color wise) for my taste. The belgian yeast flavor hits right when it should.

A very different tripel from the ones I've been drinking lately. Some mild funkiness on the initial swirl, lemon zest, lavender, corn, aspirin. Really aggressive flavors though.. hard candy, peppermint, banana, yellow pear, & pineapple. Carbonation and mouthfeel is spot on for a tripel, lots of tiny bubbles on each sip makes it feel light, despite the heavy flavors.

Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. An aroma of some yeast, wheat, spices, and a little sweet fruit. Taste followed suit. A medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with this one and quite enjoyed it. I'd definitely drink this one again.
