look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
A: Beautiful pillowy head, showcasing great retention and obstinate lacing. The color is amber to light gold with noticeable yeast haze.
S: Medium to medium high intensity. Rounded, elegant and complex. Upfront: Banana, Clove and Orange Blossom. Back: Roses and Bubblegum.
Taste: Medium to medium low intensity. Clove, Banana, Bubblegum. The holy Belgian trinity in perfect harmony.
Palate: Low bitterness. Small yeast bite. Medium bodied. Medium low to low carbonation. Chewy Texture. Velvety finish. Short lingering yeasty, banana gum aftertaste. Wheres the alcohol?
Overall: To try this is a must. It's super complex and elegant. This is definitely one of if not the best Triple I've had and one of the best beers overall I've had. And this is coming from a guy who isn't even into Tripples that much.

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.
