3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Elegant in appearance, this luminous light blond beer yields a copious, bubbly head that disappears quickly. The aroma has a wine-like blend of tart apples, pears, and mild yeast. The flavor is a bit suprising: bubblegum wheat notes along with the warmth of alcohol followed by strong vinegarish acidity. The body is wine-like as well: light and very dry. There is a slight lingering fruit flavor on the tongue. Blueberries?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Kevin D. for offering me and my pal Jason a splash of this new Triple in a Tulip for my tasting. He said they were proud of it and they should be.
Typical small white head receding to a ring presents this sparkling clear light yellow triple. Heavy hops with phonetic notes of perfume and pear and a clear smell of bubble gum, that eventually fades, fascinate me and lure me to drink. As I tip the glass towards me once again, I get a slight white wine feel with a dry texture hitting my tongue. Initially sweet and moderately bitter, this is a truly great triple Finishes just as it started and leaves an ever-so-slight metallic feel maybe due to the ABV.
Well done guys, although not a true abbey triple due to the lack of malt and yeast tones, this is a good and drinkable Belgian triple.
