A great tripel. Cloudy orange with a whisp of head. Lacey. Aroma of fruit and yeast.Medium mouthfeel. The taste-did they cut these fruits in? Unfiltered taste, apricot and then peach. A bit on the sweeter side.Aged? Yet the fruit could be a smoothie cut up an hour ago, masterful brewing by the couple. A must try, and as good as a monk in Belgium.

On tap at the brewery. Mild yeasty estery aroma. Honey, grain sweetness, light orange peel and blossom. Sweet sugary smell, too. Hazy golden amber with foamy lacing off-white head. Medium-light creamy body with light carbonation. Silky. Starts sweet with oranges and estery fruit notes. Light yeasty chalkiness. Sweet without being cloying. Very little bitterness. Good floral fruity notes at the finish. After is sweet with a chalky bitterness. Really true to style on this one.
