4.15/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
A: Poured into a Bordeaux wine glass. Had a nice inch, inch and a half head. Nice cloudiness from yeast.
S: Smells fruity like apricots, pears, and other fruitiness behind a malty veil.
T: Tastes similar to it smells. Upfront very acidic, tastes of pears, lemony, and like there is a peppery spiciness somewhere in there too. It ends with a floral honey sweetness and leaves an aftertaste of bread.
M: Too acidic and overly carbonated for my tastes. This is my third triple and they all have a similar mouthfeel (Unibrow Fin de Monde and Deschutes The Stoic). Personally I don't like it, but seems to be average for the style.
O: This is the best tasting triple that I have had, also probably the best looking. Favorite of this style so far.

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.
