4.63/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Hazy burnt yellow-orange with dark floaties tossed around by the high carbonation. Large, foamy white head with long retention and thick lacing.

Blast of sweet banana, clove and a spicy peppery fruit bouquet. Very pleasant.

A very well blended mix of the banana clove Belgian yeast flavors with some earthy hoppiness, and a sweet, fruity backbone. Spicy, sharp and refreshing. Nothing really lingers other than the yeast a bit. No real standout flavor here, as each kind of just bats down the other all the way through the finish.

Light, crisp, refreshing with fairly heavy carbonation. Perfect for the style.

Very nice, but not quite at the level of some of my other favorite Tripels. I definitely appreciate how perfectly balanced and well crafted this is, though, for sure. A very, very nice beer.

4.33/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from bottle dated 25.08.16, 11.2 oz into tulip. Deep gold as noted by most reviewers. I did get the spicy, mildly estery nose (some noted no or limited esters). Head white, fairly quick dispersal. Taste was, for me, true-to-form tripel with citrus-spice up front and yeasty in finish with very mild aclohol. Mouthfeel was pretty full-bodied with a more aggressive carbonation than it looked like it would give. Citrus lingers on tongue for awhile. Keeper, will buy more.
