look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 11.2oz standard pressure cap bottle into a tulip glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.
A- Two-finger white head with massive bubbles and extremely active carbonation. Like a living creature it built itself up then settled down to smaller bubbles on a hazy orange-gold head.
S- Strong Belgian yeasts and Euro-style hops that add a citrusy, earthy tang. Some elements of a European Hefeweizen as well, banana and citrus are the two biggest notes. Yeasty and spicy as well. Peppercorns maybe? Complex, interesting beer.
T- Yeast returns, but hops and banana/clove combination takes over. Slightly alcoholic, but hidden well behind the fragrant and citrusy flavor of the beer.
M- Slightly vinous, with a medium bodied, alcoholic feel.
O- Wonderful beer. I'm starting to enjoy tripels more and more.

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.
