Draft notes from P-ville during spring cleaning. I go to IHP every Friday and this one was dark straw with hops, funky yeasty malt, and spice in the nose, tasted as it smelled, with more spicy notes late, but came off like a peppery tripel.

Tap at Pville location. Pours a mostly translucent golden with a large foamy white head that laced. Aroma of your classic Belgian Tripel spicy, peppery and fruity notes with you guessed it...a dash of basil. Lots of citrusy notes as well. Flavor was a lot of the same, basil coming through stronger in flavor. Kinda bready, basil seemed to help tone done the alcohol burn that is in the standard tripel. A little on the sweet side.
