4.25/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Half-inch head dissipating quickly. Golden straw color with no real lacing to speak of. Looked nice in its Westmalle goblet, but expected a little more to entice me.

S: A medicinal, alcoholic, and citrusy smell. Yeast and hop aromas also play into it, giving the sense of smell an inviting feeling due to the complexity.

T: Sharp yeasty taste with a lemony backing flavor. Alcohol at the forefront, but in a way that was backed quite well with many contrasting flavors. Also, maintained a sweetness that fit in well with the complex array of flavor.

M: Generous carbonation, giving it a nice bite with a dry finish. Very nicely done in terms of its feel on the palate and so many competing elements in the taste.

D: Would love many more of these because of the interesting interplay of taste characteristics, however the abv would definitely keep consecutive orders of this one limited.

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

Poured from 11.2 oz bottle into a wine goblet.

Appearance: light golden blond color with a hint of opacity. Relatively persistent 1-finger head as a nice adornment.

Smell: fruity, sweet, syrupy yet peppery. There's quite a nice complexity there. There even seems to be a slight hop aroma, so rarely seen in this style. Bravo!

Taste: a delicate flavor, much more delicate than the aroma. Wheat flavors, some of that peppery quality, even a little bready. A touch of alcohol on the finish. Overall, subtle but tasty.

Mouthfeel: creamy, creamy, creamy. This kind of well-integrated carbonation is what I love in a Trappist ale.

Drinkability: a tasty tripel, which in my book is always exceptionally quaffable.
