750 ml bottle. I think Erin bought it at World Market- somewhere. No date.

Appearance: Its a quite lovely, perfectly clear golden color with a big, fluffy white head. Excellent hea retention and lots of sticky lacing.

Smell: Candy sweet with pear, apple, and peach notes. Spicy yeast-- clove and white pepper dominate. A little doughy. Some herbal, grassy hops too.

Taste: As the smell advertised, very yeasty, spicy and sweet/fruity. The prominent sweetness has some balance thanks to a bit of hot/bitter alcohol and a nice herbal/bitter hoppiness that was a little unexpected.

Mouthfeel: Soft and creamy, with a stickiness through the middle. It doesn't dry out quite enough, but thats minor.

Overall: A pretty solid tripel. There are better ones for the price, but this is worth drinking.

A-Hazy gold color with an off white head
S-clove, spicy, some citrus in there also
T-Clove, spice, slight malt that leads to a spicy warming aftertaste, with some hop bitterness in that leads to a spice finish
M-high carbonation and creaminess with a medium body
O-was a great beer that I paid $4.99 for a 750ml bottle, and I knew I should have bought more
