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.

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.

22 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled on 9/05/2013. Pours moderately hazy golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pear, apricot, apple, orange, honey, bread, candi sugar, coriander, clove, light pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of pear, apple, apricot, orange, honey, bread, candi sugar, coriander, clove, light pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pear, apple, apricot, orange, honey, bread, candi sugar, coriander, clove, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth and moderately slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Tripel style. All around great balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
