3/5  rDev -22.1%

Born on date was within 90 days when consumed.
Poured into a tulip (Unibroue) and it finished with very thin head and massive hop bubbles.

The smell was nice if you think you bought a decent IPA.

The taste was like your average IPA by anyone and btw where is the "sweetness'?
I thought this was supposed to be a "Tripel" but didn't notice any balance in this beer to even remotely signal the word Belgian nor Tripel to be on their bottle.

Overall I am not happy with this Budweiser buddy brewers deception.
I've had a lot of Belgian Tripel's and many a hoppy version but most at least were complex enough to not shame the legendary style.
