Pours a nice clear golden color with a bit of a white head. Considerable amount of bubbles in it.

Smell is yeast, citrus fruit, and spice, mainly pepper.

Taste is fruity, bit of orange and lemon. There is also a bit of Belgian yeast funk and a hint of pepper on the finish.

Feel is ok, about average for the style.

Basically an average triple, nothing really stands out, but is still decent. I think it could use a bit more complexity, the funky flavors tend to overwhelm a bit, would like to see more fruit and pepper. Not a bad beer, just not a great one.
