look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very hazy, dark burnt orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger white head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lace left behind.

Slightly spicy aroma with bready yeast and estery light fruit notes.  Some pepper, clove and faint earthy hops followed by apple, pear and booze.  Pale malt backbone with hints of bread and biscuit.

Medium bodied with a slight creamy texture and a strong zesty spice presence up front that lingers over the bready yeast, light fruit notes and alcohol into a slightly dry finish.  The spices are a bit overpowering with lots of pepper, clove, coriander and possibly some ginger.  This takes away from estery fruit sweetness a bit but there's still some vinous fruit, apple and pear flavor.  Strong yeast component with banana and bread character before fishing with strong alcohol sweetness.  Not hot per se but lots of alcohol flavor.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a chalice: color is copper, head is light tan with fine and medium size bubbles, pretty dense, some lacing on the glass.

Smell is a blend of some booze and yeast off flavors and phenols, some hop bitterness and aroma is present, touch of grapefruit and grass.

Taste is blend of mild leftover sweetness from the sugar, phenol from the yeast and some booze/ester type flavor - all expected and desired. Sweetness is a touch more than other tripels. Phenol and ester flavors are not overpowering and complement the sweetness. There seems to be a good amount of hop flavor and solid bitterness balancing the sweetness.

Mouthfeel is a touch sweet, not cloying, followed by some tongue biting bitterness but not as much dryness as expected.

Overall, a solid brew, maybe a sweeter tripel than most but some good yeast byproduct and ester flavors.

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

very hazy rustic orange glow with golden high lights. About a finger of white head. Banana and hay on the nose.

Creamy and medium bodied. Very dry and tannic finish. Malt sweetness with a soft fruitiness up front, faint barnyard flavors of hay work nicely as undertones beneath it all. Very earthy dry finish to balance from the hops. Again super tannic finish, Really shows how a tripel can be sweet and dry at the same time rather then one or another. Reminds me of a cleaner version of weyerbachers merry monks with a dryer finish. Not too complex but with classic tripel flavors that go well together. banana and clove, fruit, and earth.
