mathieuc (3872) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2016
Pours a very clear amber with a medium-high white head that leaves very nice lacing. Nose is of grass, peaches, wine/icewine impressions with some (expected) alcohol kick. Taste is also reminescent of peaches and is only lightly sweet. Really juicy and fun to drink. Body is moderately light for a tripel, carbonation moderate and the mouthfeel is certainly vinous. A very light alcohol warmth concludes the experience. A very nice vinous tripel with some nice peachy white wine flavors.

bottle shared by mathieuc, many thanks bro! pours unclear copper-orange with a reviving off-white cap, some retention and lacing. juicy mangoes, tons of tropical nectars, fat golden white grapes, very very winey - californian chardonnay; candies, lots of bretts and other funky bugs; salt. bright carbonation, medium body - oily; semi-sweet woodsy-spicy finish. like a tasty succulent tokaji aszu.

Golden color with off-white head. Aroma has nice brett notes with peach, apricot, white grapes and pineapple. Taste follows with fruit notes, slight farmhouse funk and floral yeast notes. Light, dry body with medium carbonation. Really well made, dry fruity ale.

A lovely brassy orange gold with a nose that is very wheaty, caramel, orange blossoms. Medium to full bodied. Its got a musty flavor with orange blossoms accents. Good but not as great as most at FoFa.
