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

Look: Nice golden yellow, nice frothy white head. Smell: Spices, lemon citrus, hay, little honey, mild oats, sour notes (green apples maybe), little banana. Taste: Follows the aroma, spices, lemon tart, apples, wheat dough, fruity notes, Feel: medium-light body, lively carbonation.

Overall: This is a text book example of a tripel. No alcohol burn. Not as sour as the aroma tells. This is a very good brew. Recommended.
