3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Happy Gnome in the 10 oz pour glass they are so fond of. Surprisingly little head on a golden, clear colored tripel. Aroma has a sweetness to it that stays understated. Spices and lemon on the nose serve as a good precursor to the taste elements to come. You can feel the alcohol presence but in general it’s a good tripel representation. Off the top of my head I wouldn’t be able to describe the difference between this and their traditional tripel. Oily mouthfeel. Nice spice action working throughout.

On tap at the Prado 5 Seasons. Hazy orange, with a medium, beige head. Big nose of lemons, some musty and farmhouse character, mangoes, some floral hops, and a nice, peppery spice. Sweet and fruity flavor, with a light bittering that balances nicely. Medium body, acidic, crisp, and very effervescent, with a clean, smooth aftertaste. This is a very nicely done tripel.
