DATE TASTED: March 24, 2016... GLASSWARE: Affligem chalice.. OCCASION: ... APPEARANCE: pours a crackling golden orange with sparse effervescence... mostly clear... the head rings out to an almost cloudless... zero lacing in the glass... AROMA: a beautifully aromatic, spring flower dominates with grapefruit and orange... the banana, clove and spice suggests raw yeastiness... TASTE: a sweet, hoppy strength ripples through the profile, with astringent yeastiness, banana and clove... a sharp Saaz suggests a pilsner, while the the malt is a bit of cracker and bread... a balanced tripel, which is not the usual... OVERALL: a powerfully alcoholic, clean, crisp ale that rewards in its richness and displays the capabilities of Flying Fish... balance is the key to this abbey, with notes of honey and orange peel late...

A strong beer that will not disappoint. It isn't excellent in any one area, but is a good Trippel overall. Has a very enjoyable, complex taste that will leave you satisfied (and buzzed).

Finger plus of sleek, pure white microfoam which breaks down into larger bubbles as it dissolves, stays steady once it gets down the surface, the lacing is a bunch of random short splotches. Yellow verges on light orange hued liquid, darkened by a fine particulate throughout, the carbonation is not much in terms of quantity but moves actively. The nose has textural thrust into the nostrils but is kind of shy in terms of scent expressivity, orange peel, bubblegum, tree bark, damp brush fire, sweat, floral paste, apricot, white grape, cherry, has a good array of fruit scents, the booziness is evident just sniffing it. Full-bodied, however, drier than one might be used to for this style of beer and thus it does not soak into the palate as aggressively. Yeast, bubblegum, flower water, clove and white pepper, figs and golden raisins, the citrus is restrained here. The carbonation could stand to be a bit higher. A forest floor funkiness lurks throughout, not all sweetness and sunshine, sour twist at the end where the hops get assertive. There’s something about that feels “incomplete” and it leaves you suspecting this shows best at the dinner table.

12 oz bottle poured in a basic tumbler glass. Copper color, and nice aroma of hops and Belgian yeast. Also the style says Trippel, in my opinion it's a Belgian IPA. Hop forward bitterness with a nice Belgian finish. I really enjoyed this beer, and would definitely drink many more of these.
