4.53/5  rDev +4.9%

Poured into a snifter.

Appearance. Cloudy golden yellow in color. Pours with 3 fingers of head which slowly dissipates to a layer on top of the beer. Lacing is great and sticks around for a while.

Smell. Filled with cloves and some floral notes. Sweet white grapes are there as well. Tons of yeasty esters.

Taste. Starts out with a dry grapey and floral flavor. Grape like sweetness builds, as does a clove like flavor. Some nice spice starts to make its way in with the cloves. The finish is sweet and nutty.

Mouthfeel. Huge amount of carbonation gives a frothy feel to this moderate bodied beer.

You can't really beat this one for the price. One of my favorite tripels outright. A real standby beer.

This is a very complex brew. It pours a light golden brown hue with a good 1 1/2 head. The alcohol is prevalent and wow does it pop. Not as easy drinking of a brew so if you are new to belgian pales or triples please sip. Other than that the brew is great and even better on a nice cool winter night. I highly recommend.

Cheers

4.5/5  rDev +4.2%

2.5 finger head with nice lacing on a murky amber and golden body. Aroma is yeasty with dark fruit, mostly red apples, and spices. Flavor is excellent with a nice yeast and spice profile on a caramel malt backbone. Very crisp, moderate to high carbonation and medium body. This has been one of my favorites for a long time. The apple notes are especially good. Overall an excellent beer and go-to beer when available.
