App: pours reddish brown color with off white thick head with fine lacing.

Smell: malty, yeasty, hint of citrus a lot of nonspecific esters.

Taste: malt forward, dark fruits (prune, plum, raisin), hint of hop and nice clean finish

Mouth: medium body nice carbonation to provide some astringency and prevent from becoming syrupy.

Overall: Very good for the style, I’d recommend, though in the future would choose the tripel over the classic.
