a dry, strong, pale ale with a somewhat spicy and fruity profile. It has generous pepper and clove aromatics along with ample orangey citrus and occasional banana. Malt aromas are soft and grainy, with light honey notes. Spicy hop aromatics might also be apparent. The flavor of Belgian tripel follows suit, offering a “marriage of spicy, fruity, and alcohol flavors supported by a soft, rounded grainy-sweet malt impression, occasionally with a very light honey note.” Spicy hop flavors are usually present, and hop bitterness is medium to high, supported by peppery fermentation character. The finish is dry and bitter with lingering spicy and fruity flavors.
