Pours a startlingly dark black, with a nice mocha head.Smells of holiday spices like you'd find in a Belgian holiday strong dark.
It's passable. Like most spice beers, I'm not a huge fan of the cinnamon, pepper, clove. Mouth feel is well balanced. Wouldn't get it again.

Pours a delicate publish red, almost like ruby grapefruit juice, with a fine white head that goes to laciness quickly. Smells divine. Belgian notes followed quickly by an elderflower nose with hints if tropical fruit and cranberry sharpness.
As its name would suggest, it's a very lightly flavored beer. Lightly tart with perfumed notes of elderberries.
Don't get it again.
Hazy golden with a tint off orange and no real head to speak of. An almost nectar like sweetness on the nose, with hints of citrus, honeysuckle, and higher alcohols.
Good balance and light flavor, with a bit of the sweetness evident on the nose. Each sip refreshes and leaves a slight after taste of syrupy sweet.
Pretty solid tripel. Get again, if it's reasonable.
