COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dont be fooled by Candis golden appearance. This Belgian Tripel may taste of sugar and spice, but her beguiling introduction is far from nice, flirting with a covert 9.5% ABV. Saaz and Halltertau hops provide a clean, floral aroma with minimal hop bitterness and the soft sweetness of apricot and pear lingers nicely against a dry finish.

AirForceHops (6869) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle from a mix 12 pack, named the "Pinup Pack". Color is a see-through orange / gold color. Thin head retention. Aroma a lot of yeast byproduct of bubblegum, banana and dried fruits.

Flavor is sweetness of pear with light sugar notes, again Belgian yeast showing bubblegum and banana, but not over powering or overly sweet. The alcohol is only lightly noticed. Texture is somewhat dry. Not overly spiced or overly sweet. Pretty much average for the style.

gripweed57 (1513) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Bright honey gold pour topped by a firm rocky beige head. Fruity, yeasty malt nose redolent of peaches or apricots. First sip brings fruit, yeast and alcohol. Warming notes in the throat and belly. The tart sweet apricot notes are balanced by a moderate bitter hoppiness. Finish is cloying, then bitter, then dry.

BierMeHoos (587) - Maryland, USA - SEP 15, 2016
Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro. How: 12 ounce bottle. Appearance: A hazy pale apricot amber in color, with a somewhat small off white head. Aroma: Sweet and fruity, with a bit of dough smell, and some clove and banana in the finish. Taste: It starts off with a fairly healthy sweetness - candied sugar really hits the palate strongly. Palate: Has a good fullness to it, yet its not disgustingly cloying. Overall: A nice tripel, and pretty easy to drink.

WaddlingPlatypus (171) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
355ml bottle at the Head of Steam, Durham. Cloudy pale yellow pour with a pale gold head. Aromas of wholemeal bread with honey and haylage. Tiny initial jammy flavour, which gives way to the strong ABV and clove spice on the tip of the tongue. Peaches and honey are present on the tongue throughout.
