I love Begian Triples and this one is no exception.

Poured from a bottle to a glass. It was bubbly, moderate head. Golden and slight cloudy. Hazy as the bottle describes it. Slight floral undertone, but can taste/smell clove like its an Easter ham. Slightly bitter at the finish. Not too overpowering for the 9.7% abv.

Like and recommend it!

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

Poured into a 12oz pint size glass, color is opaque straw with a nice frothy white head that dissipates to a ring, nice carbonation.

Smell is resiny, slight biscuit, hints of spice and raisans with a solid hop note.

Taste is a estery alcohol upfront followed by mild pale and slight biscuit malts with spiciness that goes down easy.

Mouthfeel is slightly strong on the tongue but the bitterness and sweetness are balanced overall.

A very nice tripel that i picked up for christmas, one my favorites from flying fish

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

Appearance: Mostly golden, slightly warm, fairly clear (a few flakes from bottle conditioning sediment). Nice white, slightly rocky head, nicely laces with time. Appealing.

Smell: Resin, citrus, biscuits, banana skins, honey. A little candy sugar like booziness. Well balanced. Again, appealing.

Taste: Clean malt backbone, classic fat Pilsner and candy sugar fruitiness. Hop bitterness is forward a little as I would expect in an "American Trippel". Cypress needles and citrus zest hop notes.

Mouthfeel: Again, true to the Belgian archetype. Medium light, slippery, creeps off style with the astringent finish, but you'd expect it with the hop profile.

Overall: Damned impressive. Best of a cleanly brewed Belgian Trippel and bracing American DIPAs brought together. I really like it, and will be getting more.

Massive massive creamy white head that is crawling away. Hazy golden color with visible carbonation. Interesting nose of floral and grassy hops that mask a subdued clove aroma. Very nice.

Big juicy tropical fruit sweetness up front. Slight grassy hoppiness comes in on the back end to cut and sweetness that would linger. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Not nearly as carbonated as it looks. Some malty breadiness comes through a big on the front end as well with a hint of caramel. Almost no detectable alcohol besides a touch on the breath.

Way too drinkable.

The common Belgian flavors are there but hidden under the beers hop character.

A nice twist on the trippel style with a few more hops than you expect. Not in the least a very happy beer but the amount they add is just enough to make it different.

Not bad
