look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A - Pours a cloudy gold with a two-finger foamy white head. The head dissapates quickly leaving no lacing.

S - Aromas of banana, pear, cloves, and yeasty esters.

T - Taste is fruity with a combination of green apple, banana, & pear. The fruitiness is balanced out mid palate with sweet malts, Belgian yeast and spices (corriander and white pepper).

M - Medium bodied with high carbonation. Sticky and dry finish.

O - This is an awesome Tripel. Well worth the price. Absolutely delicious.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

From the corked, caged 750 ml dark green bottle. Sampled on June 20, 2014.

Green. Uh oh.

It looks like a nice cloudy, unfiltered pale yellow pour building up a fozmy white head that sticks around for some time but slowly fades.

The aroma is pure Belgian and no green skunkiness. Thankfully. So I get toasted biscuit malts, Belgian yeast, Belgian sugar, some pear, and light spice. Inviting.

The mouthfeel is medium to heavy but leaning toward the heavy side.

The taste has a nice toasted biscuit character and Belgian sweetness to boast about. Some vague spice and pear play up the rear. Little to no hop character. Very enjoyable all told.
