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

A: Apricot hue with a big and steady head and good retention; lacing is okay

S: An amazing mingling of grains and yeast: grassy, herbaly, citrusy; plus lots of banana, pear, spices, and pepper; this is grainy and fruity and yummy smelling

T: Lots of yeast and grains playing well off each other: musty grassy grains with subtle pepper and spice and lots of banana, citrus, melon, and cloves from the yeast; the booze also plays well off these flavors

F: Really yeasty and thus creamy with great overall mouth feel

O: A fantastic tripel; one of the true classics

Pour into a chalice, has an opaque golden yellow color with a short but sustainable bone white head.

The aroma is really interesting - tons of melon and banana along with a ton of sweetness. Digging deeper there is some pepper and clove to be found as well.

Due to the aroma I was at first thinking that this beer is extremely sweet. And while it certainly seems sweeter than the average tripel, overall the flavor is much more balanced. There are some nice doughy bread notes and honeydew in the flavor.

Nice full body, and the abv hides well enough under the complexities of the flavor and aroma. Clean finish.

Overall this is a beer worthy of its praise... I know several BMC drinkers that claim this to be their favorite beer, and whom buy this for parties despite never considering any other craft options.

For myself, tripel has never been a style I got very excited about. I'd be happy drinking this at any party, but for my own buck, I'd just as readily spend it on some of the Trappist examples instead.
