Arriving in time to greet the new year is our deceptively efficacious Belgian strong ale. Golden-straw color, effervescent condition, and commingling flavors and aromas of curacao orange, coriander, yeasty fruit esters and phenols, a subtle malt base, and a warming, slightly hoppy finish. Served proudly in its own tulip-shaped glass, this perennial was the first Belgian-style beer produced in American craft-brewing history according to the beer Hunter, Michael Jackson. Don’t miss it!

Pours nice in haze orange style with a rather small nose (perhaps a little cold yet) some yeast is present. Taste is rich and herbal with spicy notes and malty. Hopas are not overwhelming but still gives a little bitterness.

This beer seems to be one that is very palate specific. I love this, but my wife is not quite as keen. Pour: This beer pours a hazy golden with a really thin white head. The carbonation both here and on the palate is perhaps a bit less than I would like, but it’s not a big sticking point for me. Nose: At the first introduction to the nose this reminded me of a yellow or orange colored fruit, such as peach with pineapple and a hint of cherimoya (which may be the banana esters coming through). It is a warm aroma, with a moderate amount of booziness as would be expected with a Tripel. The smell is predominately sweet; I would have preferred a bit more aroma hop, perhaps something like Kent Golding would do the trick. Tongue: The aroma of fruit carries through to the palate, but introduces quite a bit more complexity with flavors of traditionally risen bread on a background of delicately flavored noble hops which trail indistinguishably into long notes desserty alcohol and the light burn expected with a tripel. There is an undertone of acidity however which I find a bit odd. Mouth feel: This ale fills the mouth with a luxurious gelato quilt of silky and savory textures that enhance the favor profile which is only mildly complex, enriching the experience to a delightful play between taste and texture. Overall: I’m biased because this brew is reminiscent of another discontinued ale that I find exquisitely tailored to my palate, however I would contend that this is still a finely crafted tripel that will satisfy the palate of beer lovers, belgian beer lovers, and beer avoiders alike. I may use this as an introduction to beer for my friends who "don’t like beer," as there is a beer for everyone IMO. There is definitely room for improvement, but I will certainly buy it again.
