out of 12 oz bottle into tulip. slightly hazy yellow orange. aromas of apple, orange marmalade, cinnamon, nut, hint of vanilla. flavor has a hint of fruity liqueur, licorice, melon, lemon, orange, clementine. good amt of sweetness vanilla esque. has everything a tripel should and more, just a little bit more acidic than I like.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Weyerbacher pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy, medium gold. Moderate visible carbonation present along with some floaters, capped with a half-finger of white fluffy head.

S: Belgian yeast esters predominate (apple, spices, banana, clove) over a light cracker malt base. Overall impression is that of moderate sweetness.

T: Follows the nose – nice fruity sweetness (apple, clove, pear, light banana and bubblegum) with light cracker and crystal malts. Maybe a bit of pilsner malt character as well. Mild hop bitterness near the swallow. Finishes relatively dry with some alcohol heat.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation. The alcohol presence seems relatively restrained for a tripel.

O: Not a bad beer, but seems a little odd for a tripel. Less pilsner character, less alcohol heat, less big flavors than expected for the listed style. It tastes more like a Belgian Strong Pale Ale to me. This bottle didn't seem to have much in the way of the promised hoppiness, but there's no freshness information on the bottle either. Still, a tasty beer, if nothing outstanding.
