From notes on 6/7/14

Golden straw body. Sweet sugary sent. Taste is very sweet malty with some yeast flavors. It’s pretty good.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle, date stamped 12-21-2014
A 3.5 - thinner off-white head fizzles out quickly atop a golden colored ale
S 2.75 - almost no aroma. Weird. Faint floral and honey but that's it
T 3.5 - delicate flavors with honey, flowers, sweet candi sugar, spice, apple juice, mild yeast
M 4.25 - medium body, lower carbonation, exceptionally smooth, alcohol is well concealed, finishes clean
O 3.5 - very smooth drinking, high ABV tripel but it seems to be lacking in aroma and flavor. There are many other tripels I'd pick before having another one of these.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a very hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of white head which fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.

Smell: A spicy and fruity yeast driven aroma with good hints of citrus fruit. Belgian yeast with upfront hints of clove, pepper, funk, and coriander. Fruit hints of banana, pear, apple, and white grape. Citrus fruit hints of orange, lemon, mango, and apricot. Sweet hints of candied sugar. Pale malt with hints of wheat, grains, straw, and cracker. A pretty solid aroma.

Taste: Like the smell, a fruity and spicy Belgian style taste with good notes of citrus fruit. Belgian yeast with some notes of peppers, clove, coriander, and funk. Big mix of fruit esters with notes of banana, pear, white grape, and apple along with citrus notes of orange, lemon, apricot, and mango. Pale malt with bready notes of wheat, grains, straw, and cracker. Sweet notes of candied sugar. A pretty good Tripel taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Spicy and pretty sweet. Alcohol heat is tame.

Overall: A pretty good take on the Belgian Tripel style. On the sweeter side but not overly cloying.
