4.41/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
A - Golden, straw-colored, but cloudy with yeast. Thick, three-finger head. Not unlike a tripel with a thicker head. Bubbles difficult to see through the cloudiness. Leaves a beautiful lace along the glass.
S - Fruity, slightest tinge of alcohol. A little citrus.
T - This is very nice. A little sour (not at all in a bad way), but not overly sweet. Very well balanced and complex. Difficulty picking out individual flavors. Despite the high(ish) ABV, the alcohol flavor really fades into the background beautifully. Not at all unlike a tripel, but with the flavors more balanced, less pronounced. Bright and forward, but not particularly hoppy; certainly not bitter. Mildly spicy, and lovely malts.
M - Lovely. Swishes like a medium-bodied ale, but clings with a lovely finish in the mouth.
O - This is one of the better beers I have tried. More complex than my limited palate can truly appreciate. The overall aroma, taste, and mouthfeel complement each other perfectly. Every sip seems to reveal something new.
