3.96/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is a bright, hazy, opaque, copper-orange coloring with a filmy, sparse surface coating of white, with a filmy build up of a ring around the surface. Aromas of jasmine, bubble gum, cotton candy, clove, lemon grass, toffee, and bread. Very layered and very rich/dynamic. Opens up the more it warms. Flavors are bready and toffee in the backbone, with a tangerine/citrus overlay heavily spiced with coriander, clove, and all spice, and a heavy dose of Belgian yeast characters too numerous to name. Very tasty, and very palatable. The increased ABV is very well blended in this beer. Smooth, and somewhat light bodied, with a slow building warmth into the spiced and rich aftertaste. The finish is spiced, effervesced, and clean, with a Belgian funk linger. Good beer.

3.51/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains caramelized malts, Belgian yeast, honey, spices, some fruit and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty malt character and Belgian yeast up front. Then some sweet flavors of caramel, spices and honey come in along with some tart fruit flavors as well. There’s a significant alcohol bite and sting. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent beer but there are several others in the style that I would pick first.

Pours a hazy orange/amber color.
Aroma is mainly honey, very sweet.

Taste is apricot, honey, pineapple with a very slight spicy/drying finish, however it doesn't really balance it out much. The sweet honey/fruity flavor masks the classic Belgian spices that are the heart and soul of a Trippel.

This actually is almost similar to a mead rather than a Belgian Trippel. I like mead, so it's not bad at all, but not what I was expecting.
