Pours a two finger white head that fades slowly to a ring leaving some lace. Hazy amber/straw color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light Belgian yeast nose and flavor is light fruit and Belgian yeast. Higher ABV, 8.7%, is hidden, better as it warms. $17.00 for a growler from Shilling Beer Lincoln, NH.

On tap at Worthy Burger, South Royalton, Vermont.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy/cloudy burnt yellow to orange color with a slight cap of a little white foamy head. Not much lace, just kinda slid off.
The aroma had some sweet clove then seemed to come across slightly spicy as it warmed into some green apples, red apples, Belgian sugars, light grassy tones, and a slight clean earthiness on the back end.
The flavor leaned slightly sweet initially and then seemed eto come across slightly spicy as it warmed. Moderate grassy to woodiness trolled a little bit of earthiness to come in for balance. Moderate aftertaste of the spice and then the woodiness.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair in between glance of the "sessionable" to "sipping" quality about it. Carbonation felt on par. ABV felt appropriate. Mild spicy to apple-like finish, somewhat like red apples but also a little bit of smooth malts.
Overall, very nice tripel that I would be willing to have again. Dry hopping wasn't really noticed, though.

L: Burnt orange, hazy, spotty lace
S: Really fruity and sweet, pineapples being quite prominent, bit of mango and green apple. Spice and yeast also present
T: Spicy phenol, fruity pineapples, very dry flavor. Soda cracker malts mixed with pepper and yeast.
F: Very crisp, pretty light and somewhat easy to drink. Probably more of a sipper.
O: Very enjoyable tripel. Fruitiness is really nice with this one. Appreciate the spiciness as well.

L - Poured from crowler leading to 1 finger of white head on the ocher colored beer

S - A lot of pineapple and citrus upon opening the crowler and in the glass

T - Pineapple continues to show in the taste. After warming slightly the taste starts to leave the fruitiness and tend towards the buttery diacetyl maybe because I have had the crowler too long.

F - Maybe a little light on the carbonation but I have had the crowler for a few weeks before opening so not unexpected

O - 8.2 alcohol very easy drinking and enjoyable beer. Edited as the beer warmed: But the warmer it gets the less appealing the flavor more of a butterscotch sweetness presents itself. Cold this beer is good 4+;warm, not so much.

Sampled from a growler poured on September 24, 2016.

It pours a milky looking pale yellow underneath a modest off-white head that hangs around.

A lot of aroma activity including toasted bread, apple, pear, orange, clove, and coriander. No alcohol profile

Medium to full body. Smooth.

The taste comes across as sweeter than I expected given the fruity type aroma. The Belgian candied sugars must be kicking in. Mild to moderate bitter finish and mild dryness. Enjoyable.
