4.65/5 rDev +8.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a goblet.
A: Pours a mildly hazy golden amber with a few flecks of sediment that snuck past my careful pour. Two fingers of beautifully fluffy white head dissipated into a nice cap that left beautiful lacing.
S: The mild smell does not do this brew justice. I get bitter lemon peel and malt.
T: Wow. Apples, nuts, citrus and yeasty malts dominate the palate. I get some pleasant grassy flavors on the finish. What a pleasure.
M: Highly carbonated, medium mouthfeel. The fine, delicate, almost champagne-like bubbles cleanse the palate and leave it beckoning for another sip.
D: At 9.50% ABV, I could easily drink too many of these. In fact, I plan on doing just that.

Poured into a Westmalle chalice.
Pours a nice Hazy gold. Not much head that dissipated quickly.
Smells like sweet bread/malts. Also getting some light fruits like apples and pears. Slight banana smell.
Taste is malty and sweet like most trappist tripels. I get some crisp apple taste, as well as some banana, like a weizenbock almost, just not as fruity an floral.
Mouthfeel is tremendous. Very light and crispy. HIgh carbonation, which is nice and tingly. mentioned how it compared to a weizenbock. Not nearly as thick as that. Very light, with a slight malty craeminess.
Overall a very good beer. Not the best trappist I've had (doesn't say much since they're all amazing), but still a very good one. I enjoyed the apple flavor. faint, but definitely there. Like biting into a freah apple right off the tree.
