3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Most amazing beer appearance in a long time. Golden color with awesome retention and the head stays firm and creamy. The surface of the head is cratered like the surface of the moon, very interesting. Floral, but also very earthy in the nose and some sort of spice (apparently basil). Taste has a creaminess to it, but still manages to be dry in the finish. Almost vanilla-like in the taste, with a bit of Cool-Whip, bits of grain, and a long, earthy taste. High carbonation and medium body. If not for a little bit of a metallic taste, I’d bump the taste score up another notch. Pretty good Tripel, and nice to have an American one that is nice and relatively dry.

Gold pour, small white head. Amazing banana aroma with notes of cloves, pepper, and yeast. Intense flavor, similar, with hints of what I want to say is Hibiscus but is probably something else. A damn good trip.

Bottle shared, thanks Will. Rich apricot esters, marmalade, very saison-like funkness, floral and herbal notes, fairly dry finish, alcohol well hidden. Pretty solid stuff, very Belgian, they did pretty well for such an unusual style in the States.

Bottle shared along the old (now underground) river in Koenji. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with 2 fingers of soapy foam. Wonderful light farmhouse Belgian nose with light apricot and stone fruit esters from the yeast and a bit of koji. Feels light on the palate, with good carbonation and a well-rounded slight softness from the rice. Nice lemony, grassy finish with some light bitterness...hides the abv magically. Really nice tripel / super saison hybrid.
