3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 750 ml bottle from Central Market, 10/21/13
Aroma: The nose is fairly yeasty, lots of spice and funk, some light citrus zest
Appearance: Pours a bright, clear golden color with a thick, frothy white head and heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is heavy spicy/yeasty, as the nose would indicate, the funk it more subtle, but it is still present, there’s some citrus flavors, and it finishes with a not large, but noticeable hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, with a fizzy carbonation, and a dry finish
This is a really nice one. The mix of spice, funk, citrus zest, and hops works very nicely to make an interesting and tasty offering. I enjoyed this one more than I did the Friendship Brew Black Saison. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, says 06/06/14.
Thin, big bubbly white head, dissipates quickly. Vibrant, cloudy dark orange body, yellow hue.
Minty, spicy malt, bubblegum, strawberry candy fruitiness. Hint of paint volatiles.
A lot going on. Minty up front, spicy from malts more than yeast, not-so-smooth rye taste. Big warming booze feel at the back without booze taste. Numbs the mouth with lingering notes of pink bubblegum, slightly dry/powdery. Lively carbonation.
Hops mute at this point.
Solid Tripel with tons of complexity. Flavors are so soft which is confusing with the numbing alcohol affect.
