4.78/5 rDev +24.2%
A: Very cloudy straw color. White head with moderate lacing.
S: Belgian yeast with mild spice undertones.
T&M: Well-balanced. Slighly sweet and fruity with a nice fade to a dry spicy finish. Light bodied, clean finish.
Very good quality Tripel. A must try if you are into this style. I got this in a 'beer of the month' package so I'm unsure of the cost, but I'd put this right up there with a Duvel.

The St. Joseph's MOA pours with a thick 1 inch head and has a moderately cloudy consistency. It has a golden, orange color to it.
The smell is great; very sweet followed by the classic spices and cloves of a Belgian triple.
Taste is ridiculously good, a 5 out of 5! Balanced, unique, strong, classic and refreshing...there is nothing else you can ask for from a Belgian triple. Perfect balance of sweetness (classic sugar), spices (pumpkin and coriander), cloves (cloves...haha) and earthy flavors.
The mouthfeel is great. Flavors are mixed and balanced with every drink and the carbonation is just right.
Overall this beer is a must try. Hard to beat this one in its category!

A: Poured from a bottle to a goblet. Had a golden color and a mostly clear texture. There was an inch of quickly dissipating head. Pretty good lacing.
S: A vibrant, fruity aroma of apples, spices, and malt.
T: Tasted of Belgian yeast, apples, malt, cloves, and some other assorted. There also seemed to be - unless it was my imagination - a slight (very slight) vinous quality. A solid, lively flavor.
M: A highly carbonated beer with a dry and smooth finish. Medium-bodied.
O: A surprisingly drinkable beer. I've never had a Tripel from New Zealand, but I hope this one is good indicator of how talented their brewers are.

Poured from a 12.7 oz bottle into a pint glass. Sorry, didn't have a chalice nearby! Poured a golden opaque with the loveliest, creamiest, two-finger white head accompanied by luscious, thick lacing. Very malty nose with a touch of clove and pepper. I'm not a huge clove guy, but even though it is quite evident it is no where near overpowering. Instead, it blends in nicely with the grass and resin. A bit of aftertaste is present, but again, it's nothing overblown...just a nice remembrance of what went on before. I would consider this medium toward heavy-bodied with average carbonation. It's been a long time since I've tasted a beer this good. It's available now in my area so I'll be having more of this!

Greenish gold color with a mild haze. Thin head but it leaves ring lace after each sip.
Sour and malty. Pleasantly mild nose.
Surprising pale malt start. It leans to the sweet side even for a triple. Rich body, enhanced by a low carbonation level. The swallow brings out lemon-like sourness (lightly!). This is a really interesting beer that is flavorful subtly.... Short but exquisite aftertaste. No alcohol warmth despite the content.
