COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We started with a Trappist Triple yeast culture and carefully blended Belgian pale barley malt with traditional malted wheat and oats to produce a delectable golden ale. This special brew is aged 12 weeks creating a fruity nad refined taste with a huge bouqet, light body, and a very smooth, non-bitter finish. Best served at 55 degrees F.

12 ounce, twist-off bottle - $2.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, darkened gold body. Not appreciable head forms on pouring, and, what little is there, evaporates almost at once.

Smell: Clove buds marinated in alcohol, faintly bready pils malts, splash of honey wine, stone fruits, tropical fruits, and basic chewing gum.

Taste: Lightly bready malts, some balmy, grainy pils malts. Subtle sweetness. Early-arriving pinch of cloves and pepper. Fruitiness, most notably banana, pear and peach. Moderate bubblegum character. Noted alcohol though not overbearing. Drying on the back half with a turn towards a more tropical fruitiness. Alcohol definitely ramps up at the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Not bad, but a little middle-of-the-road for me.

Bottle. Nice aroma. Disappointing taste. A buttered taste if you will. Close but no cigar IMO. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Better on tap than in a bottle. Decent flavor of fruits and a hint of caramel, but not the most complex in this style. Easy to drink and enjoyable!

12 oz bottle pours a cloudy orange color with sediment, small white head, but good lacing. Aroma has cloves, apricot, honey, Belgian yeast, and buttery popcorn (?). Taste is slightly salty and malty. Medium to full body with average carbonation. Not bad, but by no means a great complex tripel.

bottle pours clear gold orange with small white head. Aroma of soft clove, fruit. Medium bodied, slightly grainy. Flavor is more along the lines of a belgian pale ale but with more yeast and clove presence. Lacks complexity for the style.
