ryanknock (150) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 15, 2009
A well rounded ale, similar to a trippel, but much less sweet. Grainy, biscutty backbone with the estery notes subdued, mostly being apples and pears. Great noble-spicy hop presence, and due to the carbonation quite dry and refreshing in the finish, with low to no warmth
