No idea on a date, there's a date code or something on the side, 4 J 19? Doesn't mean anything to me.

A: Pours a hazy golden pour with an enormous effervescent white head. Head is soapy and thin, fades slowly however and with sparse bits of lacing.

S: A little bit grassy and a lot of wheat. Very doughy, like a sweet dough.

T: Yup, some grassy hops up front. Some white pepper to spice it up, maybe some allspice too? Doughy malt, like uncooked bread. Herbal on the back end, combined with that peppery spiciness. Fairly dry and crisp finish.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and dry.

O: Interesting tripel. On the very dry side for a tripel, in my opinion. Hoppiness is a bit high as well. It's almost like a tripel/BSPA hybrid in my mind. Tasty nonetheless.

Trade with BenBreeg. In Teku glass. Reading CSHTP6 Ch20 + playing Tomb Raider 2015. Foamy but doesnt affect feeling. Dry, with some sweetness and a remarkable herbal hoppyness. Improves as it warms up.
