Desir - A belgian tripel inspired by La Fin Du Mond

Ok so this is one of our favorite beers.   It is an excellent version of la fin du mond, but make no mistake it does not adhere strictly to BJCP styles.  So don't think this will be a huge award winner,  just a big crowd pleaser.  To make it an award winner I would suggest upping the coriander, ginger, black pepper, and orange peel, and choosing a yeast that attenuates out more.    It lacks some of the ester punch of the worlds great tripels so you might consider fermenting this at room temperatures.  And baby sit your fermentation, rouse it daily until the end of high krausen.  If it is possible to have created an easy drinking tripel... we did.
