3.6/5 rDev -7.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from the stubby 11.2 ounce bottle. This has a beautiful presentation--orange/amber in color, clear, and a thick, fluffy head that isn't going anywhere. Carbonation is active.
The nose has notes of apple cider, brown candy sugar, clove, tarragon, sage, black pepper, orange peel, and cinnamon. There are some earthy undertones to this beer, too...of wet wood, damp leaves, and pollen.
The flavor has sweet citrus elements to it. It carries some warm bread tones, honey, white grapes, and maybe fennel. There are also some notes of dark fruit in here, such as plum and raisin--which brings with it a bit of a sweet, yet still a bit funky taste to the beer.
In terms of alcohol, the high ABV is quite present--both on the palate and as it goes down--very warming. The beer, though, is actually quite smooth--in body and in flavor. A lingering breath of clove, banana, and plum seems to hang around.
Overall, a good beer--solid, interesting, and drinkable--though I wouldn't have more than one in a sitting, for sure.

3.79/5 rDev -2.8%

Poured from a stubby brown bottle into my Chimay goblet. Slightly hazy amber color with a big white bubbly head. Decent retention for a Tripel and some random bands of lacing on the glass.
Aromas is fairly good. Light fruit (apples and pears), some banana and a little black pepper.
Flavor is more of the same, a bit lacking in Belgian yeast but still tasty and light with a little honey prominent in the taste as well as the other ingredients.
Mouthfeel is rich and smooth. No hint of the 10% abv. Goes down very easy, with the honey and sweetness as mart of the mix.
A good, but not great Tripel.
