look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance- Beautiful golden yellow hue, slightly cloudy as was expected. Poured an excelent head that maintained throughout the entire 750ml.

Smell- Excellent malt backbone that aintained the inviting sweet aroma to drink this beer furvently.

Taste- Overall malt caharcter, an excellent sweetness slightly offset by the hint of bright hops that counteracted the sugary flavors of the malt. Slight;y reminded me of a vanilla malt from Basken Robbins Ice Cream.

Mouthfeel- Excellent light cracter that lent itself very well to turkey. But with a slight alcolic effervescence that gave the brew a warming quality to the palate.

Drinkability- A beer that has a flavor that lends itself to savoring. Not guzzling, which is good considering the excellent complexity of this beer.

Notes- had this beer with Thanksgiving dinner, which made an excellent compliment to turkey, blaukraut, mashed potatos, and lamb.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - hazy orange, big white head. Good lacing.

S - sweet lemons and honey malt. Some low level spice too.

T - pretty much follows the smell. Very smooth alcohol

M - Light, yet smooth. Alcohol warmth is quite pleasant, but pretty strong.

D - Each sip is to be enjoyed. The alcohol is fairly prounounced, so you need to take your time with this one.

I really enjoy the sweeter tripels like this. Superb.
