look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Yellow and clear with a half finger head and pretty good lace. Normally I'd expect more head on a tripel, but it ain't bad looking.

Cloves and yeast dominate the smell, along with a little banana.

Flavor is very banana and clove, with a good portion of Belgian yeast. It's very sweet and has a bit of fruitiness too.

Body is medium and less carbonated than I'd expect from the style. It leaves a sweet and yeasty aftertaste.

I don't think it's on the short list of tripels for me, but it's still a pretty good beer.
