12 ounce bottle with enjoy by Feb 28 2015.
A - hazy golden champagne bubbly brew with half finger of fizzy head and some moderate lacing.
S - strong floral component with a dose of coriander and yeasty bread.
T - whoa, that's a tripel with a strange pepper kick. The barely there malts disappear under the peppery fire leaving a very mildly honey sweet middle with a bitter follow through. It taste like an extract of black pepper.
M/D - the carbonation is great but the pepper is so pronounced and amplified by the carbonation that you have to sip.
Feels watered down and spiced up.
I love a good peppery tripel but this one is not high on my wants for a tripel.
I wonder if it doesn't need it's own fusion category of tripel/herb/spice beer.
