Pike Brewing Monk's Uncle

Monk's Uncle poured a hazy, golden yellow color with a paper thin, small bubbled, white head. The aroma is flowery, slightly sweet with a malt base. The body is pretty sweet up front, backed by a thicker malt base that dies out. It is a little thin on the backend, with the hops peeking though a bit.

Overall, an average tripel. The nose and first impression are great but it fades out. This needs some balance for the huge sugar bill up front as well as a little bit more depth. The finish is ok. An ok beer, but I miss the complexity here that I love in tripels.
