3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Bad Apple in Chicago. Citrus, honey, black pepper and spices in the aroma. Pale yellow appearance, lots of white head on top. Boozy taste, honey, coriander, tropical fruit, and some hot peppers. Lots going on here, tasty at a slow pace. Mouthfeel is lively with carbonation, crisp and warm from that booze aspect. Overall I'd say thumbs up on this twist on a tripel. They squeeze in a lot of flavor action and it works as a whole.
