4.08/5 rDev -5.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: The beer pours a beautiful golden straw body with a big foamy head.
Smell: Sweet malts, clove, and a hint of coriander are noticed early. A banana aroma becomes stronger as the beer warms. Maybe I have an old bottle but the aromas all seem a little too subtle.
Taste: Follows the nose. It starts with flavors of Belgian hops, clove and notes of sugar. There is grape flavor and some dry hop bitterness on the finish. A very complex beer but none of the flavors are really "deep." The alcohol is well hidden.
Mouth feel: It is medium bodied with a lot of carbonation. There is a buttery feel that becomes noticeable as the beer warms; quite refreshing.
Overall: I don't know if it is as good as the "bros" say but it is still an impressive Tripel.
Serving type: bottle
