      Bright red-brown, thick bubbly head. Sweet and spicy, malty and estery aroma. Light-medium creamy body. Rather metallic at first, with a hint of sourness. Richly malty, even chocolatey, with hints of cloves and cinnamon. Gum-numbing alcohol in the finish.

      "Triple". Golden, hazy, high carbonation, big head. Smells spicy, like a Wit, and somewhat floral. Sharp carbonation bite. Sweet beer that tastes just like it smells, only more so. Some citrusy fruity notes, soft spicy hops, and maybe a hint of Brettanomyces (more as it warms up). Warming and drying at the end. Smooth beer. "Best enjoyed before March 98."
