look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours clear gold with a two finger white head, which has decent retention and leaves spotty lacing. The aroma has peaches, pears, citrus, pepper, coriander, and Belgian yeast. Not quite as nice of an aroma as the best Tripels have, but still pretty good.

Tastes more bitter and less sweet than most Tripels. There are peaches, pears, alcohol, pepper, coriander, Belgian yeast, and quite a bit of hop bitterness from the citrus flavored hops. The alcohol is not hidden as well as I would like it to be, but is not overly boozy.

Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Has a somewhat boozy aftertaste. Not made as well as I would have hoped for, but I'm glad I had a chance to try this.
