Draft at The Alibi Room with the Vuong family. Pours a clear, bright amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is sweet Belgian candy. Mouthfeel is thin with bland notes of Belgian candy and zesty yeast. Light spice. Eh. Overall pretty boring, and not my preferred style.

Very aromatice fruit nose. Almost smells like Sunny Delight. Fresh oranges, melon, and a hint of booze. Taste is full of citrusy hops with big notes of peach, apricot, and melon. Hop bitterness isn’t harsh, but warming alcohol in finish.

Golden, slightly hazy pour. Head dissipates fairly quick. Citrus hops on the nose. Really interesting combo. Definitely get that classic, smooth Belgian flavor up front. Turns to a nice west coast style IPA.

On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma of buttery malt, yeast and some candied sugar. Flavour of leafy hops, dry apples / pears, Belgian yeast, some candied sugar, and fnishes very dry hoppy. A most wonderful IPA / tripel hybrid. Excellent.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap. Wow, this is interesting! Pours clear to slightly hazy amber with a nice white head that dissipates leaving great lacing. The aroma hits you up front with citrus - grapefruit and orange, just like a west coast IPA, with a backing of Belgian yeast notes. Taste starts fairly traditional of a tripel - yeast, a little wheat, alcohol notes, but then the citrus hits again filling out the body in IPA style. Fades to a nicely bitter aftertaste. This one may not be true to the style, but it is an interesting and quite tasty fusion.
