look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

330ml bottle into snifter, best before 2017, consumed on october 4, 2014

a: fully opaque light orange hue, three fingers of off-white head

s: some very nice bready scents made their way to my nose as i was pouring. citrus fruits are quite apparent -- think orange and lemon. these aromas are followed by spicy yeast and bready malt notes

t: the aforementioned citrus fruits are in the front, but that quickly leads into yeast flavours (the spice is tame though) and notes of freshly baked bread. has a mild-to-moderate earthy/herbal drying finish

m: very soft carbonation paired with the medium body gives the beer a creamy feel

o: an excellent beer -- it's balanced, tasty, and dangerously drinkable. the belgian tripel is a style i never enjoyed, but i'm really starting to appreciate it now

Dark yellow hazy body with a small fluffy white head. Tropical fruit aroma with a hint of yeast smell. Sweet banana yeast taste. Reminds me of a strong tasting American wheat beer. Really good.

Poured chilled into a snifter 10/17/2014

A = Hazy yellow with an awesome 3 finger merengue-like head that stayed around for quite a while. Lots of visible carbonation. No visible sediment but very cloudy.

S = Lemony citrus, sweet dough, a little peppery spice, faint banana, a touch of peach or apricot, yeast and earthy funk

T= Sweet and doughy without being cloying, citrus, low bitterness from herbal/earthy hops, fruity esters, warming alcohol.

M = Well carbonated and medium bodied but creamy and smooth. Very easy to drink for a strong beer.

O = A delicious and well balanced classic Tripel. Truly a benchmark for the style. Highly recommended.
