Pours a murky copper with a lasting tan head. Aroma is raisin, nuts, and yeasty. Taste is caramel, doughy, some dates, and a little pepper. Lively on the palate and finishes dry. Not bad.

NIce pour... malty sweet with the lingering yeast and super long/mild hop note. Very fresh... Carbonated just right!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy rust-tinged burnt orange with a small white head. Aroma is kinda tangy with orange peel, sourdough bread, toast, grain, hay, slight caramel and raisin. Flavor of caramel, sourdough bread, raisin, grass, pepper, and a slight chardonnay-like flavor. Finishes with the yeast drying things out slightly and an aftertaste toast, tangy sourdough yeast, and some caramel. Medium to light bodied, fizzy mouthfeel, doesnít quite hold it all together. Decent beer, but the flavors are very light and tangy in nature. Pouring the yeast in helps the beer, but overall itís merely an average example of a style I love.

OK, everything about this beer screams Tripel not dubble, which almost makes me think they put it in the wrong bottle, but thats all I will say about that because its still a great beer.
Aroma is sweet and spiced like apples and pears with cinnamon. Color is a deep golden with nice white head. Fairly malty flavor but those spiced fruit flavors come through quite a bit. A great beer, however misleading.
