Amber orange with a mist of sediment clouding it. Quickly fading ivory foam leaves the top with a moderate collar. Lacing drips quickly back into the collar and nothing to very little sticks.
Aroma is of melon and banana candy sweetness with a great addition of lime peel zest, pink roses, mild musty yeast, and is lightly spiced with clove and white pepper.
Taste has a short banana and pale malt dry front. Spice kicks in pretty quickly with yeast, pepper, and clove. A mild melon candy and dulled caramel sweetness soaks up the extras and keeps an adequate balance. Fluffy banana bread, airy rosey perfume, and delicate left over spices fade off the finish with carefully placed alcoholic esters and flowery hops.
Feel is just a nudge over a medium body with a solid carbonation, hold, and texture. Has a malty smoothness and light candy sweetness overall with a good spicy kick and airy dryness about its touch. Nice complex flowery spicey finish.
A pretty good Tripel. Complicated enough and well made with that certain American playfulness that suits its character.
A - Pours a big, slightly hazed, apricot colored body. Huge light tan head consists fo varying sized bubbles. From the sides it's big and soapy, but from the top it's thick and fluffy. The big soapy bubbles reduce to tight uniform bubbles after a couple minutes. Good retention and lacing.
S - Very floral and fruity. Belgian yeast comes off big and bold. Fruity esters of strawberry, peach, and apricot. Some candy sugar sweetness mixed in as well.
T - Taste is very much like the smell, but maybe a bit sweeter. Starts with huge fruity sweetness with strawberry, apricot, mixed berries, apples and pears. Yeastiness comes in, but isn't overpowering. Finishes with a bit of spiciness, with coriander and all spice.
M - Smooth and fluffy, medium full bodied.
D - I really like this one. Big and sweet, but somehow not cloying.
