look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Relatively tall head, but it dissipates quickly. Minute amount of lacing. Color is a darkish golden-yellow (not gonna lie my first thought was urine). Cloudy with trace sediment.

S: Spices and bananas come through immediately, followed by a reminder of the abv. Smells like it will be a little too spice/sweet for my tastes.

T: Taste better than it smells. In contrast to many of the other reviews here, I actually like the balance of spices and alcohol. There is definitely a warming effect, but I would say the alcohol is covered up pretty well given the abv.

M: A little slimy, but not too thick and has the right amount of carbonation.

O: As always, a good abv will give a beer a few extra points in my book, so long as nothing else is sacrificed. Not a bad example of the style, I would recommend it to anyone looking to try a new tripel.
