Profiled by Ken Carman for Professor Goodales
The flavor is tripel like, but if this isnâ€™t White Labs Abbey yeast Iâ€™ll bite myself. The aroma is WL Abbey out the kazoo with pilsner malt in the background. Iâ€™m guessing this has Belgian white candy sugar in it. It has that distinct slight abrasive sense.
Mouthfeel: a firm, tripel like, carbonation dominates with its prickly sense. Again: a slight abrasive taste as if the liquid has a little sand paper to it. Thatâ€™s a distinct Belgian white sugar sense.
This is listed as a Golden, but to me itâ€™s more of a Tripel with lower abv and WL Abbey. This is as if they wanted to do a Tripel but due to abv laws they had to back off. Millie described as â€œwatery.â€ To me itâ€™s more a weak attempted due to keeping fermentables down.
Appearance is slightly hazy, srm probably about a 2: light yellow, urine color. Head id white pillow with a few medium sized bubble-rocks.
I would try it: yes, but more a lawnmower Belgian. I simply canâ€™t give it a 4. Advise, if must keep it this way, try Coriander, Orange Zest, anything to make it more interesting. More body would help: true, but then youâ€™d probably raise the abv. Switch the yeast, please.

RB has it right in this case, BA too generous.
