Nose: orangey, doughy, yeasty. Zip of orange and tangerine zest in the back. Hint of banana peel. Aloe and green grass and cactus. Whole peppercorns. A pinch of sage in with the greenness. Playful and lively.
Palate: doughy, yeasty, and banana peels. Whole peppercorns, green aloe, and banana skins. Sage and spice. Bready, doughy, and yeasty underneath. Dry along the sides with straw and grass. Spice atop the tongue – whole peppercorns, sage, rosemary, and coconut husks.
Final Thoughts: another solid hit from Great Divide. While not the greatest Tripel a solid offering for anyone who enjoys this style. Good stuff.
