look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear deep gold and sudsy white head with plenty of lacing.

S: Yeasty bread, overripe bananas, butter, vanilla and hints of spices.

T: Sweet caramelized bananas together with smooth vanilla and yeast. Extremely smooth.

M: Thick, coating and chewy with very low carbonation.

O: Surprisingly smooth and thick, this beer works well with plenty of meals or as a sipper on its own. Definitely worth seeking out.

look: 4.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Beautiful orange with a bright white fluffy head that lines the glass.

S: Something is strange here. Some Belgian yeast scent but also a weird undertone as well. Another reviewer may have nailed it with likening it to olives. Not good.

T: Spicey Belgian yeast, cloves, and a strong malty back end. Some wheat flavors in there as well.

M: Full bodied but well carbonated. Fairly hot; I can definitely taste the full 7.5%.

O: This is one of those "meh" beers. It's good, I would probably drink it regularly if I had it on hand. It's certainly not great and not really worth seeking out.

Served from a 330ml bottle to a tulip glass.

A: Cloudy yellow/ orange with a thick 2.5 finger head. Retention was pretty nice and so was lacing as well.

S: Belgian yeast characters come through in the smell but there is also an olive like aroma that was rather off putting.

T: Coriander and cloves in small to moderate amounts.Belgian yeast esters are present .A little bit of a honey flavor and some very slight pear as well. Hop bitterness is low. Nothing was very bold in the taste and it was quiet balanced.

M: Bubbly feeling in the mouth and very smooth. Alcohol is pretty well hidden.

O: It was a good beer but I've had better. Nothing astounding but it was nice to have one of. I got it as a gift too so I'm quiet content.Overall kind of boring for a Tripel and nothing really stood out for me .If you're looking for a great Tripel look elsewhere but this was a decent representation of the style.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle

A- Orangeish, cloudy. Big and thick foam, nice retention

S- Caramel and honey malts, very sweet with a candied sugar feel. Slight estery spiciness

T- Again very sweet though never over the top, notes of honey from the malts, a bit of a sugary feel. Fruity notes on the back of things (apple, maybe orange). Slight touch of bitterness in the finish

M- Medium body, a bit on the light side for a tripel, carbonation is quite lively. Alcohol is way too easily noticed expecially since 7.5%ABV is on the low side for a tripel. Things get worse if it warms too much

O- Enjoyable, but still mediocre, lots of better tripels out there
