3.65/5  rDev -9.9%
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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Note: had this alongside a barrel-aged version for comparison.

A: pretty much on point, light-yellow hefe-like coloring versus the darker barrel-aged. Opaque haziness in both. This has a dissipating head that clings to the edges. A swirl of the glass brings a film back to the top, which fades to the edge again fairly quickly.

S: definitely get a grain profile, but not barley, wheat or oat scents, although no idea if there's a reason to sense this. I can also sense what both me and my girlfriend call a "funkiness" that I notice more in the non-BA version. I think it's a coconut-lime kind of feel, but I can also say banana-orange (with a LOT less conviction).

T: if you let the beer warm a bit, it is very close to the nose. The beer starts fairly standard, but to me has the smoothness of an added adjunct (oats, for instance), which is independent of said adjunct actually being a part of the beer (since I do not know). I also get the coco-lime "funkiness" in the taste, which works for me. The fruity side of this sense is more prevalent than in the BA version. There is also a light vanilla taste in the end, and as a fairly big stretch, could be have a pseudo-creamsicle vibe.

M: very smooth, but maybe a slight bit flat (took me a while to tastes this one, so no confidence in that statement).

O: this one is unique to me. Not sure it fits with anyone's straightforward definition of a style. If you're on the adventurous side at all, give it a try.

Serving type: on-tap
