A little bit sharp on the tongue, and the head wasn’t as high as I would have hoped for, but a very good tripel. Nice flavors of butterscotch and ginger. Smooth despite the high alcohol content.

Opens with a very loud pop of the cork. Very heady, a hazy amber in color.

Slightly sweet & carbonation is tingly on the tongue. Tasted of honey & grain, No bitterness, it's 10.5% alcohol is well hidden.
An excellent beer.

L: Pours hazy gold into a Bush glass producing a 1” clingy white foam cap with a fine bead. S: Hops with fruit and citrus aromas T: Fruity – orange to peach, some funk and banana F: An extraordinary texture gives this beer a very soft palate with a medium body and medium to high carbonation. O: A must have, high quality potent big beer.

On-tap 5/24/2015 at Doherty’s Ale House, Warwick, RI served in a snifter glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains spices, Belgian yeast, bananas, citrus, caramelized malts and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of bananas, citrus and spices. Then some breadiness comes in from Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down dangerously easy, not too filling, strong well-disguised kick, very good representation of style, this is a very solid beer to drink for a long time.

750ml bottle served in a Prairie Teku glass
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one.

A - Pours a hazy apricot with 3 fingers of bone white foam with lots of floaties hanging around.

S - Straw, yeast, pears, apples, banana taffy, stone fruit puree,

T - Fruity yeast, pears, golden delicious apple, apricots, candi sugars, grainy malt, grassy hops, fruity alcohol. Lots of malt backing but isn't overly sweet. Has a nice dry finish with some herbal notes.

M - Moderate carbonation foams up in the mouth, warming, creamy feel. the carb dies down a bit as it sets.

A solid Tripel that doesn't wow you but has the basic components nailed down.
