2.98/5  rDev -19%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a goblet glass. Pours a cloudy, gold with a 1 finger head. Quickly dissolves into a very thin head. Less than half a finger.

Aroma is somewhat lacking, in my opinion. Fruity. Alcohol comes through a bit... Picking up some floral notes.

Taste is more of the same. A little too fruity up front. Kind of like drinking some fruit juice. Can't really pick up the types of fruit, but definitely a blend going on there. Finishes with floral hops and a touch of spice. I also get a little alcohol taste in the finish too.

Surprising light mouthfeel for a brew of this ABV. Deceptively drinkable.

Overall, a decent brew, I guess. For me, its a type of brew I pick up to taste, don't enjoy it to the point where I get more but don't hate it to the point of a drain pour.

3.88/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 1 pt 9. 4 fl oz bottle into a goblet.

A - Cloudy orange with pale yellow highlights. Half finger head that dissipates fairly quickly.

S - Yeasty cloves and mild banana. Green grapes.

T - Bread, yeast, banana, and grape notes. Strangely not as much as alcohol presence. Mild tartness at the finish.

M - Mildly sharp but still a touch creamy. Solid.

O - An interesting brew. Tripels have a way of sneaking up on you due the propensity to swill it down swiftly. This is worth trying, even if it seems to be missing something to put it over the top.
