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.

Not really the best at reviewing beers yet, but am I the only one who got a somewhat metallic taste from this? Maybe my palate is messed up but I could swear I had a bit of a metallic aftertaste. It's not bad, the sweetness is a bit overpowering, but I really don't have much experience tasting Belgian beers. I wouldn't jump to taste this again, but I'm just trying to expand my horizons. And I'm definitely gonna work on better reviews. Cheers!
