Nice Belgian beer that packs a punch.

Pours a nice yellow. Foams quite a bit. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, some citrus, and some caramel or alcohol. Taste is very good. It's like drinking a very nice Belgian blond, but with added ABV. The taste of the tripel makes you stop from chugging it down. Body is stringy, light.

A- Dark orange with a bright white head. Nice a frothy, 2 finger head that died to a nice pinky's worth. Very murky and sediment rich. Looks the style.

S- malty, bready, spicey, & earthy. Has the nice Belgian yest strain smell. Also has a dark fruit quality. Slightly juicy as well, like grapefruit. Primarily spicy and malty. Very inviting.

T- Very spicy with an undertone of some kind of herbal quality as well. Has that Belgian funky yeast flavor, but only minimally sour. The sweetness accentuates the yeast character well.

M- Medium to full, but on the medium side. Very dry. Finish is malty and sweet before it dries. Its very spiced at the end.

Overall its a decent beer at best. It's not a Belgian beer I'd rush to the store to buy. It was almost one dimensional in its spiced/ herbal character. I'd like to see a lager yeast quality and more sour notes. But this is a decent beer overall.
