4.38/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a very nice golden color with a beautiful one-inch head, and great lacing for a tripel.

S: A somewhat subdued smell with light malt and a moderate hop presence.

T: The largest amount of hops I've ever had in a tripel. This brew is slightly more balanced away from the malt end of things and more towards the hops but still extremely well-balanced, and I love the hops that do poke through. Subtleties only present in well-balanced Belgian brews abound and the beer improves considerably as it warms up. Great roasted malts underneath.

M: Dry, with a bitter finish and plenty of carbonation. The finish is a little more bitter than I expected from a tripel. Extremely crisp like the quad I previously had from Chimay.

D: Very drinkable stuff...tempting to drink too quickly but the wait is worth it.

A fine tripel that reminds me of the Westmalle but isn't quite as balanced due to the slight hike in hops. Still an extremely enjoyable brew well worth its price tag.

4.15/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a clear golden color with a half finger of head that dissipated quickly. This is a malt forward offering, but it is relatively light-bodied considering the ABV. The taste is ever so slightly sweet upfront with a dry, mildly hoppy finish. This is one of the most well-balanced beers that I have had the pleasure of sampling.
