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.

This is a tripel and it basically tastes like one. The pour is a dark gold (SRM 9), almost no head, not much lacing. Mouthfeel medium bodied. Taste starts sweet, ends sweet, with an alcohol gag at the finish. Not enough maltiness to bury the booze. Probably due to the use of honey as an adjunct. No acid. No hop nothin'. Aroma has a hint of honey, maybe a trace of coriander, or maybe that's something I just wanted. Very strong, sweet tripel, but not exceptional.

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.
