This evaluation was predicated on the Beer Judge Certification Program style guidelines of 2015 category 26C Belgian Tripel.

Upon initial pour a pleasant complexity of aromas comes immediately into play. Yeasty phenols are dominant and accompanied by Coriander and other secondary spices. Fruity esters are also evident.

A frothy white head was supported by a peach colored ale  that carried a slight haze, often contributed as the result of a secondary fermentation in the bottle not unusual with this style.

A bready malt character blended well with the spicy yeast notes and a potpourri of other spices to deliver a unique and enjoyable treat to the taste buds.

The body was medium to full with a bit of alcoholic warming which led to a dry finish.

A well conceived recipe that delivers a delectable blend of ingredients enough to satisfy even the most persnickety of beer drinkers.
