3.85/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

330ml bottle. Pokal glass @Homo Sibaris (Barcelona). Deep amber color. Clear appearance. Off-white froth creates a so close, foamy & lasting crown. Wide lacing rings are left on sides. Belgian yeast, ripe fruit, candy sugar & spiced aromas. Mild toasted sweet mal flavors & biscuit notes. Medium to full body. Soft to moderate carbonation. Dense texture. Warming & harsh alcoholic sensation & spiced palate. Long sweet/subtle bitter finish. Ripe peach & apricot on the aftertaste. Nice & easy drinkable Tripel.
