4.01/5 rDev +8.7%
Had a friend hand me a bottle of this at a social gathering last week. I didn't have any way to take down some tasting notes so I don't have much to add other than I really liked the beer. Definately a strong belgian ale. If you like these types of beers, I suggest you try this one. Complex flavors that work together to make good beer.

3.25/5 rDev -11.9%
Look- nice clarity with some particulates floating around, decent amount of head from the carbonation, but it dissipates quickly. leaves a little ring of lace.
Smell- spicy phenols, and fruity esters, smells like clove, tiny hint of banana, peppery spice and some caramel maltyness.
Taste- crisp and fruity to start and then comes heavy with the spice and phenolics, i get a little bubble gum and aspirin taste which im not partial to. finishes with some lingering spice and caramel. no alcohol presence in the flavor
Mouthfeel- carbonation is full and sharp, drinks like a much weaker abv
Overall- i like this beer, but it would not be my first choice for a tripel. the aspirin/bubble gum notes threw me off this one, besides that its a respectable brew.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
A- hazy golden color, 2 finger head that dissipated quickly leaving heavy lacing all around the glass.
S- definitely has a peppery scent; there is also a slight floral note and a heavy yeast aroma. toward the end of the bottle there is a citrus hint as well.
T- the pepper/spices definitely come through as well as the malt or yeast. as the bottle comes to an end there is a heavier alcohol note.
M- the malt coats your tongue and the alcohol lingers long after the beer is gone.
O- The variety of flavors and spices that sit on your tongue make this beer fun to try; however, this beer is too malty/yeasty to be all-occasion choice. In addition, the high ABV makes it one with which you have to be careful!
