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.

4.3/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pale golden and slightly cloudy with medium sized bubbles.
Aromas of dried fruit and trail mix, orange peels, candy corns, sourdough bread, lemon curd and almonds dominate.
Flavors of dried apricot, lemons and oranges; candy corns, lees, almonds and macadamia nuts and chardonnay. A really nice long finish, and amazingly light considering it tips the scales at 9% abv.
A really fantastic beer. I would drink this with just about anything, but grilled pork chops with apricot chutney feels like the perfect pairing here.
I am continually amazed, being of a wine background, at how much complexity today's craft beers are generating.
High marks for this great offering! Will definitely buy this again.

Slightly Sour.
Lemony.
Just a touch of bitterness to it.
Not too hoppy.

Is a higher ABV beer, but doesn't taste boozy. It is a lot mellower than you would expect it to be.

It is nice and clear, has a slight head to it. Nice color, bright.

Bottle and label are attractive.
