A - Hazy yellow gold, white head, persistent, with moderate lacing.

S - Poached pears or baked apples, allspice and cloves, a touch of sourness, and creme brulee.

T - Applesauce. Spicy baked fruit notes. A bit of grassiness.

M - A bit prickly. Carbonation. Not much drying in the close.

O - A much more pale tripel than most I've had. The fruit notes are front and center, pleasant, and the beer is quite drinkable. High ABV is kept well hidden.

Peaches, pear skin, green apple, sweet Belgian candi sugar, clove, and musty yeast notes form the aroma. Flavor follows suit, with peach nectar dominating and pear accompanying tart apple on a bed of sweet malt. The finish is fairly dry, peppery, and a touch bitter. Earthy hops linger in the aftertaste. Ends up being overly sweet as it warms, but that could be due to age.
