Pours a cloudy, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of citrus hops, pine, sweet malt, slight yeast, grass, slight alcohol, hint of wheat, and hint of floral notes. Fits the style of a Tripel. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of alcohol, sweet malt, slight yeast, slight grass, hint of floral, hint of hops, and a hint of spice. Overall, good aroma, body, blend, and complexity.

Appearance - deep golden color with nice lacing around the glass.
Smell - A mixture of hops and a scent of alcohol.
Taste - Tangy on the tongue and then that warm feeling as it pours down the throat.
Mouthfeel - I drank this at room temperature and it felt warm on the palate with a slight bitterness.
Overall - A fine brew that I'll drink again, not an everyday drink for me, but a decent tripel, especially if you're into Belgian beers.

A: This poured a cloudy light gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like pine and grassy hops and some unripe apricot, with honey biscuit and sweet candy sugar
T: It tasted like grassy hops and tart white grapes, with some pine and honey biscuit. It had a clean sweet and sour aftertaste.
M: It had a smooth full body with subtle natural carbonation.
D: This was a really nice and fairly unique tripel, with enjoyable scent and taste. It had a great body and smooth finish, so it was easy to drink. Probably not for aging, but solid fresh.
