3.61/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

appearance: Hazy golden. Big foamy Tripel head. Attractive enough, nothing outstanding.
smell: No denying it's a Tripel. Some yeast, some fruit (a faint apple cider smell comes through. Again, a nice Triple, though nothing to distinguish it so far.
taste: Much like the nose. A nice fruity apple cider note in the finish, but mostly good enough, nothing great.
overall: Nice Tripel. Glad I tried it. Not wowed.

750ml bottle, best before 2015

A- Dark golden, light orange or something in between. Frothy white head that totally disappears in the span of a couple of seconds, no lacing either

S- Sweet aroma as to be expected. Caramel malts and a slight fruitiness among a yeasty feel, slight alcohol whiff. Quite weak

T- Luckily a little brighter than what the smell promised. Sweet malts upfront, notes of honey and caramel. Alcohol is very much present, bringing a warming feel and a touch of estery spiciness. Slight herbal finish with a touch of bitterness. Decent but far from the complexity that you can taste in most belgian tripels

M- Quite light body for the style, expecially low on the carbonation side. Overall quite easy to drink. Alcohol brings a warming feel but gets too much in the way as the beer warms

O- This bottle had no or signs of infection or major issues, so i'm reviewing the beer for what i had, which was still decently enjoyable, but mediocre and lacking complexity. It seemed to me like they were trying to bolster things up by just raising ABV

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that gradually died down, leaving a wide collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet malts and fruity yeasts are present in the nose along with some hints of alcohol and spices.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has honey-like flavors of malts along with notes of peppery spices. There is some sweetness from the malts and candi sugars but this is mostly balanced off by a light amount of bitterness and notes of alcohol.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. Some hints of warming from the alcohol are perceptible.
O: There's no mistaking the strength of this beer given the notes of alcohol in the taste but it is a nice beer to sip and a good representation of the style.
