4/5 rDev +3.9%
A: poured into a snifter to a light orange with a finger and a half of dense white head that is slow to fade and leaves decent lacing
S: smells of spices, fruity esters and citrus.
T: taste is spicy yeast, phenols, fruity esters, citrus, slight malt sweetness and the swallow is more spice, fruity esters, and some lingering hop bitterness.
M: this beer is not quite medium in heft on the palate with soft but adequate carbonation and a pleasant finish that is a little drying
O: This is a pretty solid trippel. It's a little more delicate with the flavors than most but the complexity is there. I need to buy another bottle and revisit this because I'm not sure if I'm still tasting my dinner or notes from the beer. And if the former is the case then this would pair very well with some pork souvlaki.

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.
