crazy this cigar city collaboration was still sitting on a shelf down in colorado springs, covered in dust, nice find! decent beer too, although i suspect its changed a bit, coconut and peach as the additives, solid basic tripel at its base. its really sweet from the peaches, sweeter than the normal style, which i already often find sugary. lovely in the glass though, with a tall white head, lasts the whole drink. the peach flavor has faded a lot i assume, but the sweetness is still there, less flattering like that. the coconut is still there though, more earthy and nutty than sweet and milky, which is a nice contrast and steers the tripel in a cool new direction. wheat is the grain i taste the most of, and the yeast is ad weird as it always is from these guys. its belgian, but theres a lot more going on than just that, some mild spice goes with the peach, and the fruitiness is also compatible. neat beer, but a bottle to share if you still have one due to the sweet and the heat, the booze does show through a little bit. cool to see coconut it a light colored beer, let alone a belgian one, very uncommon, but it fits super well. i dug this quite a bit, but wished it were drier.
