3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: bronze-orange, clear at first then increasingly cloudy with subsequent pours; a near-white meringue of a head lasts quite awhile. Aroma: toffee, caramel, vanilla, honey, pepper and clove, with some herbal, lemony hops. Taste: light caramel, pear, honey, light citrus, spicy and peppery hop/yeast note. Finish: lingering yeasty bitterness balanced by a firmly sweet caramel and clove undertone. Notes: A surprising tripel, with a focus seemingly on caramel malts and yeast as opposed to the typical fruity and dry champagne type notes. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.
