Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2006
Fruity nose, plum esters, some clove, light citrus. Slightly hazy orange-golden color, big. rocky white head. Nice balance of fruitiness and spiciness in the flavor, corriander and clove dominate, pleasant malt sweetness but finished dry. Medium body, pretty high carbonation. A decent tripel that features spices over hops.
