What the brewers say

“Mildly yeasty with a complex palate of malt, fruit, and spice notes followed by a smooth, dry finish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Strong wheaty aroma, faint malty sweetness, backed up with hints of candied orange peel, lemon, black pepper, coriander, and bananas. Yeast aroma suggests wit more than tripel?”

Flavor: “We are in the wit zone! Solid blend of coriander and orange, with some good spicy phenols and a pleasantly dry finish. The orange also moderates the malty sweetness. Very similar taste to the aroma: citrus, bananas, cloves, black pepper, and even a touch of pineapple. High carbonation helps to provide a cleansing finish. Alcohol presence is fruity, but otherwise well hidden. Spicy hops flavor is subtle.”

Overall: “This is an outstanding tripel that veers toward the flavors of a wit. All of the elements are there, and they work harmoniously—it’s very nicely done. Makes me want to eat some mussels. Nice spice and fruit note with good supporting malt and bitterness and a crisp carbonation level.”
