Botel (bottel) - nose is honey, raisins and boozy forest fruit. Sip adds booze with a hop kick. Decent. hopdog (12350) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2017
12oz bottle. Poured a golden color with a smaller sized off white head. Fruity, spice, and some citrus. ironprog (81) - Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2017
12 oz. bottle. Pours a lemony gold color with a tight, white head that lasts a fair amount of time. Aroma is sweet with scents of lemon, yeast, and orange peel. Taste is exactly what it smells like ... sweet, lemony, and just a hint of orange. Very refreshing!! It is light-bodied with a slightly creamy texture and has lively carbonation. The finish is a bit tart. Overall a surprisingly good beer. When I saw it in the store I really wasn’t expecting much but figured, "What the heck". Now I’m glad that I did! I’d also like to point out that the artwork on the label is some of the coolest I’ve ever seen on a beer bottle. Their Night Swim porter is another good one to check out (both art-wise and beer-wise). UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAY 20, 2017
Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with one fat finger of rocky white head diminishing gradually to a creamy dense cap, moderate chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: doughy yeast, coriander, candi sugar, banana, apples and pears, citrus. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, mild peppery spice. (7/10) Palate: medium slightly slick body, moderate carbonation, sweetish moderately spicy finish. (3/5)
So, I was thinking (yeah, I know, first mistake): pale, clean, dry, highly attenuated… those characteristics definitely aren’t my bag when it comes to IPAs, but they sure as hell are when it comes to Tripels. So, precisely the characteristics that made me so dismissive of their Free Dive and Hyperbolic IPAs, should be exactly in keeping with what I’d like to see here, right? Well… maybe. I mean, there’s some of that. But it leads out with a doughy yeast, and carries through with a little more sweetness than I’d like, and finishes with a spicy coriander that to some extent balances the slightly heavy-handed and slick alcohol, but mostly just overwhelms everything that came before. It’s not bad, y’know?, but I was hoping for more. It’s very possible I haven’t had a better American Tripel, and it’s actually better than some Belgians I’ve had - but I’ve certainly had many better examples of the style, whether Belgian, French, or, yes, Canadian.

Bottle at lunch at Captain & Krewe in Naples. Bright enticing gold pour. Nose is yeasty and fruity. Tastes of yeast, orange, coriander, florals and lime. Some booziness for sure. Nice.
