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....

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a snifter.

A: Hazy golden yellow with lots of bubbles and a one-and-a-half finger, white, foamy head that lasted a couple of minutes and left a nice film. Great lacing.

S: Sweet, Banana, clove, citrus, Belgian yeast.

T: Moderate to high sweetness and light bitterness. Sweet malt and spice. Lacks depth.

M: Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Crisp and slightly astringent. Slightly warm going down.

O: Good budget Tripel. Nothing really wrong with it, but not one of the best.
