4.69/5 rDev +9.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
A: Pours a light gold (piss) colour. Leaves a foamy pure white head. There's small dark sediment at the bottom. Not particularly good lacing.
S: Bathwater, sherbet, nail varnish. Floral and a touch vinous.
T: Phew, no coriander flavour. It's slightly vinous. Has some sweetness. Not yeasty but there is some white bread. A bit of spice and peppery clove, a good bit of lacquer/nail varnish complemented with an appropriate bitter bite. It's quite floral. There's some of that hoppy bathwater that I get from English ales but not as strong as the head suggests. Nail varnish and summer fruits in the aftertaste. More citrusy as I get to the dregs. Leaves a sustaining Sprite-like citrus flavour in the mouth. At 9.5% it's very drinkable. Alcohol is well masked.
M: There's enough effervescence but it's very soft and fine. Foamy but in a good way.
O: This is now my third favourite Belgian pale ale.

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.
