4.65/5 rDev +7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A: Poured out of a 12oz bottle into an old, clean canning jar with a handle. My nicer goblet-like pieces of glassware just don't have the volume to cope with the head of a tripel, so it had to be the jar, which seemed preferable over a pint glass. Despite that, the head was overwhelming. I had to repour a couple times to get it all in. Eventually the head faded to just a coating on the top. It's a hazy light orange color. I'm a little disappointed in the chaos of the head, but it looks nice.
S: A combination of sour lemon and dry, straw and hay aromas. Yeasty too.
T: First impressions: booze and sugary, ripened fruit. Much more potent and rich than the color and smell indicated. For the highest rated tripel on BA I was initially disappointed, but things are improving now. Grainy elements too, and a subtle finish to balance the initial punch of flavor. Man, it keeps growing on me, and I'm going to give it a 5 here.
M: Very creamy and impressive. The seemingly abundant carbonation is actually quite good in terms of feel. A little bit oily.
D: Well, the richness of it will keep me from putting down multiples of these, but it keeps pulling me back as I drink it. A really fine brew.
