4.35/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: golden yellow with fizzy white head, slightly hazy

Aroma: banana and clove, floral and spicy hops, soft pale male aroma

Taste: malt heaviness with palate coating flavor, banana and clove yeast flavors on finish, slight spicy hop bitterness of finish as well, non-detectable high alcoholic flavor

Mouthfeel: High carbonation, leaves mouth tingling after gulp, full body, soft malt character with heavy malt mouthfeel

Overall impression: A good example of a finely crafted Belgian Tripel, exhibiting notes of clove and banana with soft pale malt character and heavy malt mouthfeel. Crisp, cleansing carbonation revives palate for next gulp.
