3.4/5 rDev -14.4%
Pours out a nice dark orange in color with a finger white head that dissipated really quick with not lacing, Smell is really sweet that I can only assume is brown Belgian candy sugar. Really not much going on in the nose except real sweetness, Taste is more complex with the Belgian candy sugar, a little tiny bit of booze, and certainly some brown sugar to go with it as well. Mouthfeel is medium thick which is nice for the style. Honestly I don't like the beer as much as the last time I drank it as it just isn't as complex as I would have hoped. this is a great beer but just needs some balance,

3.45/5 rDev -13.1%
Poured from a 750ml into a pint glass on this cold December night.
Appearance - Light golden color with 2 inch collar of foam. Significant lacing on left on the glass.
Smell - Very subtle. Hints of Belgian spices/yeast, sweet, and slight aroma of alcohol.
Taste - Apple, banana, and pepper.
Mouthfeel - Medium body and carbonation.
Overall - Not the best Tripel that I have had, but this is a good beer, decent value, and relatively easy to locate. You could do a lot worse.

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, hazy, gold in color, moderate carbonation, big time sediment
Smell: apricot, golden delicious apple, pear, and Belgian spices
Taste: apricot, golden delicious apple, pear, honey, and Belgian spices
Mouthfeel: sweet, light bodied with medium/prickly carbonation
Overall: A really good tripel. Love all the golden delicious apple flavor here. I was a bit turned off by all the sediment, but flavor wise, it is an excellent value buy.
