4.1/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

This is a nice afterwork relaxer.

I poured it from a bottle into a pint glass.

appearance: honey gold with some light flakey sediment. Large bubbled 1/4 in head goes away in a minute or two.

smell: A little bit of peach cobbler. Fleshy fruit and white bread.

Taste: Very peachy with a bit of nut skin bitterness. Nicely balanced sweet v bitter. Kind of like what I always want sweet tea to be.... The high alcohol does start to come out on the finish... but it stays in your mouth with out starting to burn your nose... more of a brandy than a whiskey...

mouthfeel: It's a bit thin for a belgian... the carbonation seems more "fizzy" than "velvety". Not a deal breaker by any means, but worth noting.

overall: a really nice, easy to find, reasonably priced beer that will not disappoint

comments: After reading other reviews I dug my bottle out of the recycling.... mine doesn't have a drink by date....

3.45/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Picked up a couple of singles from Total Wine back at the end of April for $2.29 per bottle. Best before 1-31-2017.

Beer poured golden with a thin wispy head that is hanging around.

Nose has classic Belgian esters, hints of apple and maybe some lemon.

Taste is coriander forward to the point where it overwhelms the base beer. Apple and lemon linger in the back.

Overall not a bad beer but no where near a classic Belgian tripel.
