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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Aficionado’s "Hidden Gems" beer tasting on 05/24/2013: Pours a hazy orange-gold color with a medium thick foamy white head that recedes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, grainy malt and hops. Medium to full body with flavors of sweet spices, bready malt, yeast and hops. The finish is nutmeg and yeast with a citrus aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
