Thanks to StonedTrippin and all of his recommendations for the love of my life tonight. Your expertise is unmatched and greatly appreciated.

As for this beer, I was looking for a new tripel that might defeat my general distaste for the style. This one almost does the trick but I wouldn't say Im the biggest tripel fan ever now either. Light Bronze with a thin bubbly layer right after the poor. Pretty much what I expect so far. Sniff test? Well it isn't poisonous. Lots of yeast here. 9 % on the label too? Lets taste it... Pretty solid. Lots of smooth honey for sure. Everything else is about standard. Pretty boozy for a belgian brew. I don't know what it is about tripel but its just no my thing. This beer is sassy, but not much more than that. I just don't love tripel okay? Don't be mad at me. Somewhere between good and a little better than good for the style but nothing I would buy more than once unless forced too.

The girl loves it. And that counts for a lot.

A - Pours cloudy, orange-gold in color, thin eggshell head with little to no lacing/retention.

S - Really just some Belgian yeast and a slight sweetness.

T - Again, just a tripel with some yeast and sweetness to it.

M - Lighter bodied, medium carbonation and has a dry finish.

O - Kind of a let down. Not much more than a tripel to me.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: This poured a cloudy gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like wild honey and some grassy hops and spicy Belgian yeast.
T: It tasted like wild honey and spicy Belgian yeast, with some grassy hops and candi sugar. It had a clean and mostly sweet aftertaste.
M: It was thick and oily with subtle carbonation. Very nice slick body.
D: This was a very nice honey ale, more like a saison than a tripel. The scent and taste were very nice, and the body was excellent. The alcohol was well hidden, and the finish was smooth, so it was really easy to drink. Much more impressive than Plan B.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Perennial Artisan Ales branded short stemmed tulip/snifter

Pours a hazy deep golden with amber accents capped by a fluffy two finger bright white head. Slightly above average retention, multiple thin strands of lacing apparent on the sides of the glass. Unique nose: fruity, floral notes, Belgian yeast, and wisps of alcohol. Opens with fruity bubblegum, floral accents joined by dense Belgian yeast midpalate. Some strong alcohol notes surface that are quickly mellowed by light honey which carries through to a smooth finish. Light side of medium bodied, fairly high level of carbonation with some effervescence that is balanced with hints of syrup in the mostly silky smoothness. An excellent variation on a traditional Belgian-style tripel. Another great brew from Perennial.

3.51/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled June 2013.

Interesting color. Very orange bronze and deep, with some shining clarity, but head barely forms half a finger of creamy white. Manages to leave a simple good puck with noticeable carbonation on the sides of the glass. Beer has a real unique color, but looks quite lifeless.

Mild sensing honey, and plenty of candi sucrose. Smells incredibly sweet and sugary. Not much else going on here.

Palate comes with luckily not as much sweetness. Slight fussel notes of heat, but not too boozy on taste. Crisp and light bodied with not much thick malt presence. Slightly wet, but manages to hold up, but also makes for easier drinkability. A little soda like carbonation and slightly medicinal flavor on the finish as well.

Overall it's not bad, but doesn't come off as anything really memorable for a tripel.
