look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into an oversized wine glass.

Look - light amber in color, fairly clear, but with little to no foam.

Smell - hoppy, but with a sweet note like that of apple juice.

Taste and Mouthfeel - wonderfully hoppy at the very beginning, with an interesting "grab" at the back of the palate. The abv is fairly subtle. Texture is somewhat more on the watery side, but not in a bad way like a adjunct lager can be. It's a "purer" type of wateriness.

Overall - Very interesting brew. Not super interesting in the taste, but near to it. Nice tasting too!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

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.
