Had at a dinner overlooking the Baltimore harbor. Paired with such items as foie gras PB&J and cheese sticks.

Appearance: golden, cloudy, no head after the pour

Smell: grassy, hoppy

Taste: strong upfront in alcohol, followed by hops and grassy flavor

Mouthfeel: pleasureable, subtlety of flavors was brought out by slow sipping

Overall: nice belgian triple with obviously high ABV, on the petey side, not as complex as comparable belgian triples, but enjoyable all the same

A-Pours a deep, impermeable golden color with a vibrant white head that dissipates quickly. Foam leaves little to no lacing on the sides of the glass.

S-Dark fruits (dates, figs, bananas), a bit of a cheesy yeast type smell typically more pronounced in wits, and a lot of spice.

T-A spice bomb. The flavors noted in the nose are washed out by spices on the palate. Finishes with that funky belgian yeast flavor. Alcohol isn't present at all.

MF- Crisp, light bodied, dry finish. Over-carbonated as well.

O-Mediocre. The nose is pleasant, but everything else disappoints.
