3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Somewhat confused beer. Orange and spice like a tripel, dried fruit spiciness and rich dark flavors and aromas like a quad, with perhaps a hint of lactic sourness like a lambic. No reason it has to adhere to any specific style ... some of my favorites are American hopped tripels, or lambic IPAs, or any of the complex hybrids that seem to be popping up all over. Maybe just a tad more alcoholic than I expected. Nice, drinkable, great complement for the duck I and jerked chicken that I served with it.
