4.05/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Clear, golden yellow, non persistent white head.

A: Sweet bready malt, banana / tropical fruits, and belgian yeast aromatics.

F: Flavor profile matches the aroma w/ a slight tinge of bitterness in the finish. Balance is towards the malt and belgian characteristics.

M: medium across the board (Body, Mouthfeel, Carbonation). No alcohol warmth and at 9.5 is very cloying.

O: IMO this beer had some belgian IPA qualities, especially in finish. Also, the alcohol was very well hidden behind the hops ;) Does not come nearly to terms to "Tripel" as others in category (Appearance/Taste), but tasty nonetheless.

Serving type: on-tap

3.85/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a golden yellow color, fairly large fizzy head that fades at a quick pace but leaves a decent lasting cap afterwards, bubbles constantly rising from the bottom, no lacing on the glass.

Smell has a yeasty lemony aroma, touches of banana with a sweet malt backing.

Taste starts out with a strong Belgian candied flavor, lemon follows along with some coriander, carbonation is medium-high but closer to the high side, kind of explodes in your mouth and fills with foam, at first the alcohol is well hidden but with each sip it becomes more apparent.

Got this in a mixed pack, solid budget Tripel.
