4/5  rDev +1.5%

Appearance - dark, hazy golden colour with very little trace of white head

Smell - Apples, honey citrus

taste - much the same as the aroma, I'm getting apples, honey, caramel

mouthfeel - medium bodied, low carbonation - almost flat, slight sweetness, flavors linger on the back a good amount, very easy to drink - you wouldn't guess this came in at 9%

Overall - solid tripel, enjoyable, this could have used a bit more carbonation for my liking but otherwise a good beer. This bottle I believe is approaching the end of it's 'best by' useful life, I'm wondering what a fresher bottle might taste like.

Price Point - $9.99 - 750ML bottle

33cl bottle (13-04-2016) into a tulip. Clear golden color, three finger white head with ok retention and lacing. Sweet smell with citrus, apple, yeast and malt. The taste begins with sweet bisquit malts and sour apples, followed by fresh lemons, finishing with a dry hoppy aftertaste with some spice that became sweeter after warming in the glass. Slightly alcoholic taste. Medium body, high stingy carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Overall a very drinkable, highly enjoyable tripel. Would be a very good choice on a hot day.

3.85/5  rDev -2.3%

Appearance: Clear copper color with some fairly large particles floating about and one finger of off-white head that fades slowly with a thick curtain of lace.

Aroma: Bready, ripe fruit, toasted malt, some yeast

Taste: Candy sweetness, toasted malt, honey and some yeast funk up front, then some herbal bitterness leading to an estery, brown sugar sweet finish.

The Rest: A really good triple, nice body and mouthfeel, just a tad on the sweet side and too much sediment to keep it from being fantastic.

750 ml bottle
A) Pours with a two finger thick, white head. Golden body color with visible sediment. Head slowly settles. Tight, sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Clover, banana, orange peel, and floral
T) Malty sweetness pairs with subtle caramel, some banana and citrus notes, and some apple.
M) Medium body. Creamy. Fairly smooth. Alcohol warmth in the finish with a subtle tannic feel.
O) A delicious brew! Besides the visible sediment this is a fantastic beer, making it easy to overlook the aesthetics.
