Vintage 2012

Appearance: a dull golden color. good clarity with lots of floating sediments. a finger or two of a foamy white head. leaves a lacing that slowly fades

Smell: quite floral, lots of sweetness, some fruitiness, and some spiciness

Taste: bananas, cloves lend a slight spice, very sweet notes but not quite bubblegummy, some alcohol come through, and some hop bitterness on the back end. pretty good taste, could use more hidden alcohol

Mouthfeel: heavier, as per the high gravity series, extremely dry and hot. too hot and dry.

Overall: a solid American trippel but I have had better that were easier to find and less expensive. pretty good but not worth the hefty price that seems common with big new holland beers

750 ml into glass tumbler.

A: Very nice blonde color with the tiniest bit of haze. Very good lacing.

S: Thick syrupy floral aroma. Clovey malt blossum.

T: Nice clovey triple flavor with a touch of hops in there. A bit of a glue aftertaste. Kind of strange malt profile in this triple. It is not a bad beer for 6.99, but not the best that I have had.

M: Nice medium feel.

O: Not a bad beer, obliviously the Bros. like this one. There are certain malt profiles that have a glue taste for me. This might be one that is right on for you, try one on.

12oz bottle into a tulip, fittingly.

A: Pours a translucent orange-gold with a nice large white head.

S: Floral, cloves, lots of pale candi sugar, some bready yeast.

T: Candi sugar, mild bitter hop leaf, spicy esters, slightly tart apple, palpable bite of alcohol, sweet grain in the finish.

M: Medium-bodied with slight carbonation.

O: Not bad. A bit too sweet with the alcohol showing a bit too much, but overall pretty tasty.
