22 oz bomber, thanks to Solomon420 for the trade. 2007 version with a label rather than a screen printed bottle.
Aggresive pour gives a nice head, but it is scant and short lived and there is a distinct lace of lace. Body has a true golden, tripel coloration.
Some bubble gum in the nose.
This drinks like watered down tripel! There are hints of the Belgian yeasts, candied sugar, banana, other fruits and alcohol, but frankly the whole pacjage seems very muted. The side-effect of this is that the alcohol is also seriously muted and this feels NOTHING like the advetised 9.1%.
A bit odd to be honest – this feels like a 50-75% tripel to me, (almost) pretty typical, but just not there.
A bit of a shame really because I have heard some good things about Marin and this is my first example which is frankly a bit of a let down.
