4.33/5 rDev +17.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 12oz bottle.
A- Pours a semi hazy golden yellow light orange color. Two finger white head rises and stays for a short period. Ringing lacing on the sides of the glass.
S- Nice big aromas of clove and banana right off the bat. Light spicey hops in the backend of this. Some sweeter alcohol in very end. Light belgian yeast aroma coming in hints in the aroma.
T- This is well...not hiding anything that wasn't in the nose. Good clove in the front with a light spicey peppery note. Big banana flavor with a hunt of lemon. Alcohol is sweet in the backend but hardly there. Pretty much what you smell is what you get.
M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is a little higher than most Tripels I think. Clove stays on the palate with some sweeter alcohol in the aftertaste. Good drying on the palate after each sip. Flavors blend well together and crispness comes from the carbonation I think.
D- This beer is very drinkable. Victory has this problem (in a good way) with making their higher ABV beers so damn drinkable. This makes the beer dangerous but still enjoyable as well!

3.85/5 rDev +4.6%

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.
