looks like another review got purged. i'm glad i keep notes!

a: clear golden color (when properly decanted) with a thick fluffy white head.

s: belgian yeast filled nose (farmhouse/horse blanket) with noticeable floral and citrus hop character.

t: complex flavors of malty sweetness, floral/funky yeast and surprisingly strong hop presence (pine and floral flavors). very good.

m: somewhat dry mouthfeel (in a pleasant way)

quite a fantastic beer. i hope they keep making it. i'm also happy to say that a year or two does wonderful things to the flavor profile of this brew. it gets very fruity and even more complex with time..

This one for the price can't be beat, a lot of fruit up front consisting of mango,pineapple. A bit sweet with a little heat at the end over all the heat is hidden well. The only draw back here is the head retention lasting only about 45 seconds and minimal lacing , but like I said for the price you can't beat it I will continue to purchase this brew. Cheers!

A: a somewhat thicker looking orange-gold color with a quickly receding thin layer of head....less then a 1/4 of a finger, if that's such a measurement...

S: somewhat sweet and flowery...fruity too... a pretty unique blend of it all...malty, grassy, interesting...

T: Palate was taken aback a bit here...some vanilla/banana blended with a summery taste of floralness mixed in with a bit of yeastiness... pretty good..

M: somewhat thick & creamy... very pleasant!

0: Very enjoyable tripel from the east! glad I have a few more :)

A: The beer is golden yellowish orange in color and has a slight amount of carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that died down but left some lacing on the surface.
S: There are aromas of bananas and spices in the nose along with some hints of grapefruit and orange citrus from the hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and slightly sweet and also has some hints of bubble gum, candi sugar and honey in the flavors.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It is somewhat smooth and thick and also had dryness, particularly in the finish.
O: The alcohol is noticeable in the taste, but doesn’t hinder this beer’s drinkability; however, I’m not sure if I could have more than two of these in a night because the alcohol will catch up with you and the thickness could make it start seeming somewhat cloying. Nonetheless, it’s a nice beer to sip.
