4.14/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

750mL bottle, poured 2/5 into an oversized wine glass

A: Slightly opaque gold, clean white but small head that dissipated quickly, very fine bubbles.

S: Estery yeasts and apples - nice and strong when I opened the bottle. Maybe a hint of honey as well.

T: Very light honey sweetness followed by tart apples and bananas, which I'm assuming is the astringency others mentioned. Maybe the slightest hint of warm spicy alcohol on the finish, no sign of bitterness. Sour taste lingers.

M: Light carb, medium full mouthfeel that's quickly dissipated by a dry finish.

O: Dangerously easy-drinking. Love the mouthfeel and smell, but the sourness lingers too long for my taste. Solid tripel and excellent value.

2.79/5  rDev -29.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A: cloudy orange/amber, fluffy eggshell head, quickly dissipates to a film
S: caramel, orange, malt, yeast, banana, bubblegum
T: smoke, savory, apple peel
M: medium-bodied, smooth, dry finish
O: The savory, meaty note just seems terribly wrong in the midst of other more natural flavors. I could be willing to try again to see if this is an unusual batch.
