On tap at Jacs. Hazy golden yellow-tan. Big steady white head. Significantly hoppier and drier than most Tripels, still has a sweet sugary backbone though. Maybe not as cloying as some examples. Very drinkable, well done.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pale and hazy straw with a thick white head. Aroma is mild but pleasant, with Belgian yeast, light pils malt, and a hint of apricot. Flavor is at once malty and light, with medium bitterness and minimal sweetness. Grassy and very dry, with a lingering bitterness and some booze on the finish. This is a somewhat unique tasting Belgian tripel, but a bit one-dimensionally light and dry.
