4/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a corked 750 ml bottle into a clear chalice glass.
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden color, with a one finger white foam head that retains well. Minimal lacing.
Smell: Sweet and yeasty with phenols of light fruits. Some subtle hops in the mix and a little whiff of alcohol.
Taste: More hops than the usual Belgian Tripel, and I like that. It's a good mix with the yeasty phenols and light wheat-like flavors. A really well balanced and smooth drinking Tripel.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, creamy soft carbonation and finishes slightly dry.
Overall: Great session Tripel and a really excellent example ot a Trappist Tripel. Not as sweet as other Belgian Tripels, which is what makes this a unique one in the style. The extra hops and dry profile make it interesting, and I rank it highly on my list of Belgian Tripels.

4.03/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Pours a fairly clear golden with a lingering frothy ivory head. Notes of green apple, lots of peach, coriander, and clove dominate. The flavor is more subtle, with sharp green apple,a touch of pear, and citrus becoming bready mid palate and finishing peppery and spicy. Great beer, with a well appointed dry character that keeps it refreshing. Bitterness is a touch more than I'd prefer.
Serving type: on-tap
