4/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy medium golden color, with a large white head, which retains quite well, moderate slow-rising carbonation, and scattered, thick lacing.

Aroma: Rich aroma of cloves, ripe bananas, and bready yeast.

Taste: Sweet, warming alcohol at the open, accompanied by a fairly strong note of herbal hop bitterness. Throughout the taste the sweet flavors and the mild hop bitterness vie for supremacy, neither yielding, neither vanquished, rather striking a truce of necessity. There are also mild notes of light tropical fruit, and a mild peppery spiciness throughout, but these are very much the lesser.

Mouth feel: Smooth rich, soft, and very full.

Drinkability/notes: A simple, but well crafted Tripel, quite worth a try.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve ounce brown glass longneck bottle with a pop-off crown, served in a standard pint tap glass.

Serving type: bottle
