3.65/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Firestone Walker snifter.

A: Pours an orangish amber, very hazy, with a half-finger of white head and low visible carbonation.

S: Not a lot of aroma overall. When you really dig in, there's nice sweet fruity yeast esters (apple, and banana to a lesser extent) and a bready malt background. But it sure doesn't punch you in the face.

T: Fruity Belgian yeast esters (apple and banana, with hints of strawberry and bubblegum), yeast and bready malts, and some ethanol sweetness right before the swallow. Sweetness in the hang.

M: Medium body, carbonation sensation on the low side. The alcohol is fairly noticeable, especially given the relatively tame ABV (for style) that's listed.

O: The alcohol presence detracts here - it ends up taking away from the other flavors. It's not an offensive beer, and perhaps worth a try, but honestly I didn't find it to be a particularly good tripel.

Pours a brown to slightly orange brown or rosy brown in color with a 3 finger full white head that leaves light lacing. It's translucent and resembles a tropical punch when held up to a bright light.

Fruit (from the lime zest and Motueka hops) and spice (from the Sterling) on the aroma. Definite lime, and maybe lemon, with other tropical fruit as well. Mango, and perhaps a hint of pineapple. The oak barrel comes through with just a hint of tequila.

Lime is even more clear in the taste as are both the tequila and the oak. Spectacular spice from the Sterling, but the tropical aspects of the Motueka are not as evident here as in the aroma. An overlying bitterness from the hops and the lime zest is matched by the sweet caramelly malts. The taste of alcohol is pronounced but not ovewhelming.

Moderate in body with a light sting of carbonation. Slightly drying with a bit of sticky syrup on tongue and lip, and a bit warming.

The aroma was amazing from the start, and the taste matured as the beer warmed. I like everything I've tried from Lickinghole, but this is definitely the best so far.
