Pours a thin head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is grain, barn musty and a little lemon.
The taste is watery, boozy and dry grain.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
Not great.

Pours with average to medium head, golden cloudy body. Aroma of sourdough, and spice, coriander. Taste is butter, light tangy hops. Palate is again hops, overall slick mouthfeel. Decent effort.

Orange color with a chill haze, minimal lacing and no head, it still looks nice in the glass. Poured from bottle with no date. Clove, bubblegum, banna, and citrus peel on the nose, or as i call them the usual suspects for a tripel. The same on the taste with the familiar yeast qualities. Slightly watery but alcohol not as strong as i was expecting. Good entry level tripel.

Enjoyed from a bomber, in Seattle, poured into a plastic Oregon Brewer's Festival tulip (uh?) glass. Pours hazy orange with minimal but long lasting white head. The nose is boozy with a bit of Belgian sugar and ripe fruit. The taste shares the ripe fruit with the nose and is boozy as well. The body is light, with a dry finish. Overall, a bit thin and boozy but for the price, I'd have it again. Cheers!
