3.51/5  rDev -9.3%
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.
