4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured From the Tap into a pint glass
The color is a bright hazy yellow/orange with two fingers of thick foamy white head and some thick lacing left on the glass.
The smell is citrus but with a touch of earthy funk aroma. There is some navel orange or tangerine here in the nose along with earthy grass aroma.
The taste is tangerine and a touch of banana with a earthy, herbal flavor. The hops here have some bite but it seems less sharp then expected where the fine malt bill shows that this beer has more balanced then I anticipated. At times there is a bitterness that threatens take over and dominate with a spicy flavor that was interesting. The malts makes this beer work as touches of Belgian malt flavor rears itís head keeps things from being one sided.
The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a crisp, drinkable feel. The ABV here does give a slight kick but this is a beer that can be sipped and not rushed.

Total surprise! Is there a soft IPA? This is it! Subtle fruit, boozy, but very drinkable! Great, well crafted brew!

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2015 Bottle/Fest.
A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head.
T- Citrus, bubblegum, wheat, slightly bitter.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, yeasty finish.
O- Meh, itís certainly like no other tripel Iíve had and thatís not the best thing. Definitly more an IPA to me yet tons of bubblegum like a hefe.

On tap at 2015 GTMW, pours a hazy golden orange with a thin head, the aroma has a good amount of hops and citrus mixed in with some belgian yeast and spice at the same time, the flavor has a hoppy front end with a lot of vanilla and fruit and spice at the same time, really interesting.

Absolutely splendid. Combines the best attributes of both styles. Think an exceptional IPA with Belgian yeast. This is that.

Stunning and wonderful. Solid triple, perhaps a little more sweet and less carbonated than the standard. But done perfectly well. The barrel aging adds a complexity. This is a very very good beer.
