Bottle. The pour was a clear reddish amber with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that dissipated in a matter of seconds down to a very small collar, which created some poor spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a light cereal malt and a sweet funky yeast with notes of candi-sugar, apple, dark fruit (plums and cherries) and a slight sour alcohol presence.
The taste was a tad malty sweet with a mild candied apple flavor early on, becoming mildly yeasty with a nice note of dark fruit, a slight sourness and a mild alcohol tinge at the end. The flavor hung on for a decent time proceeding the swallow with a sour fruity taste left to linger well after all other flavors were gone.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry watery texture and a lively carbonation.
Overall a very unique tasting brew, one that has a mix of a Belgian Tripel and a sour beer blended extremely well giving this brew a superb drinkability and flavor...

The nose has hints of hay, tropical fruits and some alcohol. Pours a golden color with a slight haziness and a medium white creamy head. Looks tasteful. The taste is full and has a nice mix of caramel, sweet fruits and hops. Is has a nice feeling in the mouth with a slight creaminess. Overall a pleseant beer, but no blockbuster

Bottle from Beers of Europe, during the Belgium-US game. Splendid bright golden colour, although no yeast present. Sweet malty character, syrupy, strong alcoholic bite. Almost a barley wine with a tiny hint of some Belgian yeast character, could do with being drier and more balanced for me.

High Priestess of Fermentation have spoken. This Tripel has an extra Belgian candy sugar caramelized flavor that is rich and Imperial. I dig it. But I have a sweet tooth. I think they did a great job at retaining the Belgian quality of the yeast although remaining unique. Rich and sweet not sickening and thin.

Bottle. Smells of spicy malt, clove, banana. Tastes very sharp and fizzy, spice and malt with a very bitter dry long finish. Pretty malty for a Tripel.

Pours clear orange, slight of white head. Aroma pilsner malt sweetness, fruity, bubblegum esters. Taste sweet malt, bubblegum, fruity, banana esters, no hop flavor. Mouthfeel aproaching thick body, mid carbonation, alcohol heat and slight astringency, finish on the sweet side. Overall not great, not enough hops for the style, too sweet of a finish, no balance sweet throughout, do not like the banana esters.
