This rich, full-bodied brew is loaded with dense aromas and flavors of candi sugar, baking spice, just-ripe plantain and Granny Smith. The palate is surprisingly light and bright, offering medium carbonation and a subtle bitterness that lifts the finish. The alcohol is well integrated and barely noticeable, making this a dangerously drinkable tripel that's best shared with friends and food; pair it with fried pork chops or a good sharp Cheddar.
