The jaggery contributes color and flavor to this beer. This a a bit darker than typical triples due to the palm sugar. The jaggery also imparts molasses and earth tone flavors. The beer finishes with a nice belgian funk from the yeast. Excellent take on the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is clear yellow and headless with a malty nose. It is sweet and not too terribly eventful, aside from being kinda medicinal and cand-like. It has high carbonation and is a bit tart. Lingering sweetness competes with earthy bitterness in the finish. The jaggery seems to add nothing special but this is a relatively decent trippel.
