Pours dark amber with a tan head that dissipates fast. The aroma contains malts, caramel, fruits, dough and yeast. It tastes medium to heavy sweet and medium sour with a light bitter finish, and smoky, spicy touches. Full body and oily texture. Good carbonation.

Bill Becker (725) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - APR 6, 2016
Pours a light gold with just a hint of a haze vs clear. Large head of foam settles to aboot an inch and ceases from there to recede. It has the classic aromas of a Belgian Tripel. Hoppy, yeasty, earthy, yeah. Tastes like it smells. Nice level of bitterness that compliments that Belgian yeasty character and overall so earthy. Dry as a bone in the finish. Great mouthfeel and sooo drinkable. I am sorry that others don’t get this beer as in recognize this fits the style so well. Yeah, Silly is pretty much an overlooked brewer but. ..this is delicious!
