3.51/5 rDev +1.2%
From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on April 20, 2014.
It is a decent looking pour with its orange-amber-copper color, good clarity, and modest off-white head.
The aroma had many of the Belgian Triple sensations one would expect such as biscuit malts, sweetness, and effervescent cleanliness.
The medium body is a bit heavier than most Tripels and I like that.
The taste tends to make one forget the aroma. yeah, there are biscuit malts, sugar sweetness, and clean crisp hops but there is this odd aftertaste that I would only best describe as medicinal. I have to say that it really throws the positives out the door because the taste is what lingers. It really throws all the good character stuff I have to say.

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.

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.
