Before I review this beer I need to confess. I don't like Belgiums, or anything that remotley resemebles the style, too sweet for me personally. HOWEVER, my girlfriend bought this for me and its been sitting in the fridge for a couple days so here it goes.
The color on this brew is hay color, lightly yellowish with a big fluffy head. A very nice looking beer. Smells of fruit, subdued hops come through faintly on the nose. Taste is sweet, estery, with a chewy medium thickness in the mouthfeel. Sugars come through very prevalently and hide the high ABV...so tread caustiously on this one! I thought this beer was well crafted, thought I'm not a huge fan on the style, the look, nose and mouthfeel alone on this made it OK to drink.

3.43/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz : chalice

Hazy, brassy, dark golden with a foamy, off white head, that is unfortunately fairly short lived.

Nothing particularly exciting. A subtle blend of clove phenols, lightly bready, sweet notes, faint fruity, apple/pear esters in the finish.

Medium body, foamy carbonation.

A tasty, well done Triple. On the palate nothing about it really stood out for me, but it wasn't lacking either. I would have enjoyed a more prominent, long lasting foamy head.
