4.75/5 rDev +11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
A - Light yellow body with slight haze. Thick white head of foam with lots of carbonation.
S - Very complex spicy phenols. Moderate fruity esters including banana, clove, and lemon. Light malt character. No hop presence detected.
T - Spicy, fruity characters at first. Low to moderate phenols, definitely peppery. Some lemon citrus esters present. Ending bitterness is mild, with welcomed presence of yeasty grain character.
M - Medium/light mouthfeel. High levels of co2 create welcomed bubbles across your tongue. Very light warming from ABV, but almost unnoticable.
D - Very smooth, refreshing Tripel. Complex palate of esters will keep interest levels.
Wow! I was not expecting this beer to be this exceptional. I'll definitely be back for more.

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.
