4.7/5 rDev +13.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Bottle poured into a duvel, oversized tulip (no goblets on hand)
A - Pours a very red, opaque tripel. Not the most careful pour as a bit of yeast has snuck in. Lively carbonation, off-white persistent head that leave no lacing still is delicious looking.
S - Vastly complex. Some green apple skins, spicy, biscuit malt comes through nicely. I was unsure of the bottling date but the bottle conditioning has kept this beer fresh. I am just beginning to notice some of the candy sweetness.
T - I enjoy the noticeable amount of pale malt. Not completely trying to mask all malt flavors. Agrees with its smell with some biscuity, light melanoidins. Shys away from relying heavily on candy sugar to boost alcohol and keep body light.
M - Medium to full mouthfeel. Semi-dry and crisp. Heavily carbonated.
O - A lot of tripels I have had come across with way to full of a mouthfeel, no malt characteristics, syrupy, too candy-like but this tripel has opened my eyes to what most tripels should aspire to be.

4.03/5 rDev -2.4%

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.
