4.25/5  rDev 0%

App: Cloudy, pale amber with big head and lacing and strong carbonation visible

Aroma: Malty and Belgian yeast. easty with notes of banana and apple. A good typical Belgian pale or tripel smell.

Taste: Sweet malt and Belgian yeast. A sweet tasting beer with hints of toffee. There is also an interesting peppery taste here.

Mouthfeel: Medium and somewhat frothy.

Overall: A good Belgian tripel. Didn't seem to quite have the "wow" factor of a Westmalle or Karmeliet but not significantly inferior and well worth a try for fans of those beers.

90/100

Pours a hazy amber with dense creamy white head, settles slowly to a thin layer, rings of lace down the glass. Smell: lightly sugary and bready, pear, coriander and spicy hop notes. Taste: pear, cooked green apple, clove and coriander, grassy and grainy, lemon honey cough drop, pear and baking spices in the finish.

Poured a medium golden color, with about one finger of head, which doesn't last long. Aroma reminded me of golden raisins. The taste also has that flavor, with a mild bitterness from the hops balancing it out. Has a moderately thick mouth feel with noticeable carbonation. Quite expensive, but quite enjoyable.
