A cloudy, yellow-gold haze rolls in as the Pisgah Solstice Belgian Tripel fills my awaiting glass and her bubbly head settles in dead center. Spice, yeast, and sourdough are exciting first impressions as her nose unravels before me. Pepper, sage, and green herbs mingle with feisty coriander and peppy orange peel. There is no doubt the Solstice Tripel is of proper Belgian inspiration. My first quaff is rich and rather thick; too thick, as heavy kneading dough weighs upon my senses and threatens to smother her compatriots. The spicy yeastiness in her nose is now piercingly rancid, biting the top of my tongue and sides of my mouth. I have a soft spot for Belgian beers in general, Tripels being one of them of course, but the Solstice Tripel from Pisgah Brewing is nowhere near my soft spot. The last few quaffs are just more of the same.

No matter how celebrated and sacred the solstice may be, this one in particular falls short. Her aroma was delightful, but the final product was a less than enjoyable Belgian-style Tripel. The potential was there, so maybe Pisgah will turn a new leaf and upon the next gracious solstice, try their hands at a new batch. After all, if you brew it, I will try it. Whether or not I will like it though, that is the question.

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Bottle. Poured hazy orangish gold, lots of head and lace. Aroma of yeast, spice, citrus, light malt. Taste is similar with some soapy characteristics as well. Mouth is light and carbonated, very drinkable. Finish is a little boozey, but not bad. Overall, a decent trip.

Bottle from Bruisin’. Split it with Chris out by the pool. Good tripel, notably a little more tart than usual. Not my favorite, because of the tart, but still tasty.
