3fourths (9015) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2012
bottle-conditioned 750ml. first shed rating of the winter. hazed gold body with a white head. both sweet smelling and more estery than the Printemps, less grassy and more fruit jelly / honey-like. the sugar suggests higher alcohol and thicker mouthfeel and it delivers the same. tropical and banana-like yeast, very Belgian-like, so I would probably say it was abbey tripel if blinded, though it seems a little more chunky, pasty and muddy like hefeweizen can be. thick finish of oily spice, sweet bread and simple syrup with banana / pear / tropical ester touches. delicate carbonation, bright flavors and light acidity / tartness play nice together, but it’s a little too sweet for my tastes.
