look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Translucent yellow with a gigantic white head that sticks around a while. Not much lacing to speak of.

S: Fruit, Belgain yeast, and slight citrus.

T: A little citrus at first. On to the sweet banana, esters, pepper and a hint of booze. Very tasty.

M: Medium with a dry kick. Well executed.

D: As good as I had expected it to be. Definitely a fine representation of a Tripel and one that I would recommend to others wanting to try a good one.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Huge three fingers worth of big fluffy pillow like slightly rocky pure white head... Settles slightly and shows solid retention at around one fingers worth which could also be a very airy and full lacing... A tiny bit of lacing clings to the glass... A slightly hazy muted golden orange color... A limited bit of sporadic, but mostly moderated paced carbonation...

S - Textbook Tripel... Belgian yeast... Some candied sugars... Apple... A slight spice kick... Some orange zest... Slightly floral... Very nice...

T - Belgian yeasts... Wheat... Apples... Pear... Faint candied sugars... Some spicy notes that pack a little bit of a punch... A bit boozy as well... Perhaps even a very faint hop component... There are some floral notes on the finish...

M - Medium bodied... Interesting carbonation which is slightly muted, but lively still at the same time... Slightly dense... Slightly sticky...

D - A very nice offering... A bit to harsh in terms of taste and mouthfeel to be mentioned with my favorite Tripels, but a very very good beer none the less... Recommended and something I would gladly drink again in the future...
