look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
750 ml bottle was poured into a wine glass.
Appearance: This beet poured a huge puffy white head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow with some haziness, but plenty of tiny little bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Vanilla, apples, pears, a little booze, Belgian candy, bready malts. Smells good.
Taste: apples, pears, vanilla, mild hop bitterness, bready malts, Belgian candy
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to high carbonation, highs little dry, medium carbonation, and a nice sipper.
Overall: A standard tripel that everybody should enjoy at one point in a person's life. Enjoyed in the past and will be enjoying more in the future too.

4.03/5 rDev -5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottle: a light brown 330mL brown bottle with a very busy yet stylish old-school Belgian label depicting the wheat fields.
Appearance: pours a honey amber colour with fine carbonation. A big white head bursts up and settles to a creamy white finger, leaving thick lacing as it dropped. Looks awesome!
Aroma: smells of spice, pepper, wheat and orchard fruits. Quite complex and refreshing.
Taste: again the complexity of flavours come through nicely with some heavier brandy and heavy fruits.
Aftertaste: flows through to the finish, lingering for a time. Pretty easy drinking yet nice as a slow sipper.
Mouth feel: a moderate- to- fuller body, with the sharp carbonation avoiding it being too syrupy.
Overall: a good quality Belgian Tripel - nice complexity of wheat, Belgian yeasts, orchard fruits, spice and some heavier ABV notes. Well worth the price.
