3.6/5  rDev -7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A bottle from Batch 1, Nov 2011. served at cellar temp into an Allagash chalice.

A- Pours a bright golden hue from bottle. Sits just a shade darker in glass. It's transparent and has light carbonation. Not much of a head forms, and just a gentle ring of foam lingers.

S- Sweet pears, light hay, lemon zest, cloves & yeast. Secondary notes of banana and bubblegum. A mellow aroma overall and on the sweet side.

T- Follows the aroma pretty closely. The sweet notes are kinda dominant, making it rather simple in the layers of flavors, but reduces in strength as it warms.

M- Medium bodied, perhaps on the heavier side for a Tripel. The sweetness lingers and is a tad heavy on the palate. There is some light heat from the Alc present in the finish. Swet and sticky.

O- A decent Tripel. Very drinkable, but nothing special or great. Too sweet for my personal likings, but a good bottle to split.

This is the first time that I like the look of a beer more than the taste.

A- Golden orange with nice cloudy body. 2 fingers of frothy white head that laces very cleanly as you drink.

S- Traditional Belgian yeast smell: orange with a yeast and gum mix.

T- Orange, Gum and a hit of alcohol followed by spice.

M- Creamy and thick that lingers on the tongue and follows with a smooth feeling.

O- I like this beer. I'd gladly have it again.

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

Poured from the 750ml bottle into a Harpoon tulip glass

The color is a bright yellow/gold with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell is sweet and has a great floral aroma that pops with a nice fruity nose. There is hints of apple peel, orange, and pear in the aroma with a touch of a Belgian character.

The taste is a bit yeasty with a grainy flavor that pops with some sweet malty flavor. The juicy fruit flavor here is delicious as some apricot, and apple flavor mixes with a tease of white grape. A nice tangy bitterness comes in and melds with the sweetness and is like a double edged sword as the flavor splashes into a poke of bitterness at the end.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a great drinkable feel that is a little dry but quite pleasing. It goes down easy and has some nice fruity esters that lingers only slightly after each sip.
