COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Touched by an Angel is a Belgian-style Tripel that dances across your tongue with flavors reminiscent of peach cobbler. Itís ethereal and effervescent, but packs an unsuspecting punch.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a mostly transparent gold with white lacing. Appears to be on the thinner side, at least visually. Smells solid; sweet and yeasty with a pleasant peach presence. Tastes like it smells, but not as robust. Average on the palate. A decent example of the style.

Draft: Hazy, light amber-brown with a small, off-white head. Orange, tangerine malt aroma. Taste is sweet, syrupy.....yeasty. Not bad, but clingy sweet.

shrubber85 (7732) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2014
Draft. Buttery orange malt and alcohol aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with small head. Sweet earthy orange and buttery malt flavor. Different to say the least - high diacetyl levels.

tap - Pours lightly hazy gold with a medium sized fading head. It has a yeasty aroma with some banana notes. The flavor is sweet and sugary with spicy yeast. Overall itís a good though but there are better tripels. Worth a try.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a very small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The weak aroma was fruity. The mild citrus mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering fruity aftertaste. The deep flavor contained notes of peach orange pear apricot citrus candy and fruity. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

This is a fine release from Sun King that definitely packs the punch it promises. More of an American style take on the Belgian than anything you would run across in Europe it still works well.

Aroma / Appearance - Warmth radiates from the base accompanied by a white fringe of head. Cotton candy, caramel, molasses, and malt linger as if standing around the fairgrounds the day after the close of the county fair.

Flavor / Palate - The chewy mouthfeel sticks in the mouth from the first sip. Honey, almonds, molasses, and a dry vinous texture round out a full bodied profile. This is so thick that at times it drinks like a low key mead. Your mileage may vary but this is a nice beer from Sun King that doesnít rely on the hops to impress.

Crispy34 (400) - Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2013
16oz aluminum can. Aroma is a sour malt aroma with an apple, trippel yeast smell. Appearance is a bronze with no head. Taste is a dry carbonation that tastes like apple and a dry, stinging booze flavor. A boozy triple flavor finishes this beer off. Palate is a dry, tripel flavor. Overall, an ok beer. Would have liked it darker, and less boozy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
