COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian style ale right between a Blond and a Tripel aged in white wine barrels. Beautifully light orange in appearance from the small amount of specialty malts, The Window of Opportunity marries wonderful characteristics of malt and alcohol sweetness balanced by the Styrian Goldings hops which offer the perfect touch of spice. This 8.5% abv ale finishes amazingly clean and dry.

Bottle shared by Ryan, thanks! Pours a near clear crisp gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has light fruits with some sweet grains and a bit of flora. Flavor has lots of sweet grains and a bit of cookie with touches of flora and light fruits.

Pours a half finger of head on a hazy light straw body. The aroma is a wonderful mixture of honey, flowers, dry grains and lemon. The taste is nicely balanced. Tends sweeter, but with a slight lemon bitterness. The texture is light with a nice fizz to it. Quite enjoyable.

This sweet tripel was nicely done...and at "only" 3.7, my least favorite of my first 11 Mraz beers. More classic to the style than wine BA would imply. Solid.

Natai (152) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 26, 2015
500ml bottle from Nugget in Sacramento. Pours gold with an impressive frothy white head and good lacing. This brew is both complex and subtle, with hints of honey, hibiscus, bread, and white wine. Probably a touch milder than a typical tripel, which isn’t to say it isn’t eminently drinkable.

DYCSoccer17 (3708) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 4, 2015
500mL bottle purchased at Total Wine in Sacramento. The aroma is light, and a bit floral. Some crackery notes and a little honey, too. Not much else. Transparent honey colored body with a small, wispy white head present. Starts with a bit of a white pepper flavor, before this becomes a bit sweeter in the middle with faint phenolic esters present. Crabonated, bubbly mouthfeel. Finishes with a touch of spiciness present. This actually isn’t a bad American rendition of this style.

marcus (10684) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle from Corti Brothers. Pours dark golden with a thick off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a rich caramel malt flavor with some clove, banana ester and a hint of white wine. Lots of flavor and very malt forward.

Belgian triple off the hook. Everything you need out of a trip. Nose, aroma, taste, finish all right there in the zone. Fruity yet sour and enough tart to keep you ordering more.

bhensonb (15768) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy gold with a large creamy off-white head. Aromas of fruit esters, wine and wood. Full bodied. Flavor is woody, even ancient woody, a little malt and some fruit ester - maybe a bit of wine, tho not much. No heat. I have had drier ales, but not many. This is amazingly tasty stuff.
