A: Pale gold, ever so slight haze with white medium foam.
S: Very unique flavors, oak and citrus. It's a tripel, so I'm thinking there's some yeasty notes in the background. More than any beer I've had lately, the aroma is a tease that spurs my curiousity to find out what it tastes like.

That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
