look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours a hazy gold with lots of visible sediment. Despite my aggressive pour, what little head there was disappeared in seconds...
S: Sweet malt, caramel, vanilla, pear, white grape and green apple in the nose.
T: Sweet malt, doughy yeast, banana / pear esters, and a touch of coriander and nutmeg. The finish is mildly astringent with very little alcohol presence.
M: Full bodied with light carbonation.
D: The well-masked alcohol and balanced flavors make for a drinkable, albeit underwhelming brew.
There are only a handful of North American breweries to nail the Belgian styles. While Victory gets closer than some, this is still a mediocre version of a tripel.
