look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Appearance:
Dark gold color, murky. Lots of lively carbonation streaming. Thick rocky head.

Aroma:
Fruity yeast... Pear, banana, maybe some apricot. There's some Beligum spices. Deep bready malt. Hint of alcohol.

Taste/Finish/Body:
Lots of fruity yeast up front, Pear, banana, apricot, also I'm getting some tropical fruit and spice (nutmeg and cloves). Deep creamy malts, bready, a little toffee. Finish is peppery, yet slight tartness and some dryness. Body is milk shake texture, crewy, crisp, semi-dry, warmth, very smooth.

Overall:
It's a world class beer.

4.5/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick off-white bubbly head that dies down moderately slow and leaves light lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of Belgian yeast, some breadiness, lemon, citrus, floral notes, coriander, cloves and light pepper. Very inviting.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some Belgian yeast, nice bready notes, lemon/citrus, floral undertones, banana, cloves and light pepper. Everything blends together perfectly.

Mouthfeel: It has a med-high carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. Definetely one of the best Tripel's I've had.

11.2 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: A two finger billowy head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a hazy pale yellow orange color with some clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Vanilla, spicy, powdery yeast, esters, apples, pears, pilsner, and pale malts. Some warm alcohol in there too.

Taste: You take everything above and blend it into one delicious sip. So tasty and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, deceiving warm alcohol, a little chewy, a little dry, and medium to high carbonation.

Overall: It's been sometime, but still an original and favorite of mine. I'll see you again in the future.
