A - Poured a copper color with an off white head that leaves lacing behind

S - Is of sweet malt with fruit and spices

T - Like the smell starts off sweet then the fruit flavors come out and finishes with a touch of spice

M - This beer has a medium body with higher carbonation to it

D - This is a pretty good beer not the best tripel I've had but one that has a good taste and is easy drinking its worth a try if you see it around

A - Pours with one finger of white foam on top of a clear, amber body. The foam settles quickly but a small head remains on the beer, supported by a steady column of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.

S - A strong, bready malt aroma with lots of toasted character. Some subtle fruit character in the background, notes of pear and red apple.

T - Sweet malt up front with a nice, mellow caramel flavor. Some toffee and pear notes in the middle. Finishes with more toasty malt and light hop bitterness as well as a touch of herbal hop flavor.

M - Medium-thick body, high carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - Well, this is actually quite drinkable though weather or not it succeeds as Belgian style abbey ale is another question entirely. It has a nice, round malt profile and enough hops to balance, but the yeast character is kind of subdued and, honestly, not all that Belgian. It is listed as a Tripel; I don't know what it was intended to be, but I know it isn't a Tripel. It doesn't have the color, aroma, or flavor of a Tripel and it has far too weak of a hop character for that style. It seems more like an Amber ale and its subdued yeast character is more reasonable if that is the case. This is not a bad beer, but it is kind of anemic for a Belgian style beer. With a more appropriate yeast character and a dryer finish it could have some potential.
