4.13/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a light golden-orange color with a couple fingers of tight white head. Retention is very nice, and the remaining lacing is tight and abundant.

Smell: A good deal of citrus, esters, cloves, a bit of banana, and Belgian yeast.

Taste: This is probably the most citrus-y tripel I have tried. Quite a bit of citrus (grapefruit and even pineapple) up front, with cloves, esters on the back end. A bit of dry bitterness lingers.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: Light bodied, mouthfeel is soft and creamy. Very nice overall with slightly peppery carbonation. This is a very drinkable beer; the alcohol is well hidden.

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.
