Lectvay (191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 9, 2014
From Rare Beer Club. A light hazy honey color. Really explosive floral taste. Manages to be effervescent and full-bodied at the same time. Very good tripel.

JDBaker11058 (1764) - Maryland, USA - DEC 30, 2013
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.

Mango colored, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is pepper, spice, pale malt, grass, lighter fruit. Medium bodied, moderate to light alcohol, fairly dry. Not bad.
