3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours mostly clear yellow apricot with a big off white, rocky head with great retention and great lacing. The Belgian yeast is apparent on the nose with a juicy fruit flavor, as are the hops with citrus and ripe pitted fruit. Some peppery notes also. Taste is first sweet then the bitter kicks in with citrus pith and pine character which lingers. Some of the pitted fruit appears after bitterness fades a bit and has a semi spicy, peppery finish. Mouthfeel is soft but full and medium bodied with medium carbonation. Good but thought I would like this more as it is a combination of two styles I enjoy. Would rather have a great IPA or a true Belgian tripel or pale ale.

Tap...quite aromatic with floral hops and funky yeasty notes asserting themselves. Complex and well balanced body with bittersweet flavors and fruity esters in abundance. Clean dry finish...well done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber to copper colored, nice lacing, medium strong off white head. Aroma is malt, peppery, some yeast and hay. Taste follows the nose, moderate sweet malt, some caramel, yeast, straw, lemongrass, spices-peppery, medium+ lasting bitterness which is a bit harsh, astringent, dry finish. Medium bodied and carbonation. Not buying it...

On tap at Roger Brown’s in Portsmouth, Va. Malty like a tripel. Lacking the real citrus character of an IPA. Pretty good, not great.
