Pours a hazy orangish amber in color with a small white head that fades to a very thin covering over the beer. No lacing. Aroma is strong of Belgian yeast, spices (cloves, nutmeg) and a light fruitiness. Flavor is very fruity… apples, melon… and slightly sweet. Alcohol is apparent, but muted by the intense fruity flavors and maltiness. Finish is slightly bitter and lingering. I am impressed… a quite decent tripel. This is the first of Stoudt’s for me and I look forward to more from this brewer.
