No bottle date, but this is being opened about a year after purchasing. Poured into a snifter
A- pours a bright and slightly hazy golden color with a small creamy white head that reduces to a small layer, no lacing left behind. Not the typical big foamy head expected from the style
S- powdery belgian yeast gives subdued aromas of sugar candy, banana and clove, toasty malt with grainy notes, light phenolic note. All of the aromas are there, but seems to be held back
T- sweet malty notes up front with some belgian sugar, clove and sweet banana. Faint phenolic notes kick in before finishing slightly sweet with a hint of alcohol
M- medium body with low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish, just a touch of abv warmth at the end, alcohol is hidden well overall
O- Easy drinking triple, doesn't rival the world class example but worth a try

Poured a light orange body with decent head and lace thanks to some lively carbonation. The first thing that hits me in the nose is some white grape aromas, like wine, then this gives way to a more pronounced tropical fruit aroma like pear or mango and there is some grainy hop bitterness and spice. Body is light and crisp, not too sharp from some orangish-citric hops and spice, the fruit flavors are really good here (again I want to say white grape) with pear, mango, maybe even pineapple along with good touches of candi sugar sweetness. The balance is there but only knocks on this triple is lack of complexity (it's really just some sweetness from fruit and sugar) and at times the alcohol bled into my drink and gave off a real boozy finish.
