look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Pale, cloudy yellowish orange, somewhat opaque with sediment floating towards the bottom. Good-sized white head that leaves behind a bit of lacing.

S: Smells yeasty and slightly musty, with subdued sugary aromas and hints of sharp, fruity flavors.

T/M: Sweet and sugary up front, with lots of sweet fruit, with the yeast base gradually taking over towards the back end for a dry, moderately bitter finish. Very crisp and refreshing, and the alcohol is very well hidden, just giving it a bit of a warming bite in the back of the throat with each sip.

O: A very good tripel, the originator and benchmark for the style, and it's easy to see why. Big, sweet, and very tasty.
