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

Pours a big 2 finger white head. Body is golden yellow in color with lots of bubbles rising. Lacing is average and head retention is decent but nothing special especially for a Belgian style beer

First smell I pick up is of pale straw malt. Then I get the peppery hay smell of a Saison. No hop aroma but there is a weird metallic smell

Taste is pretty spicy, mostly pepper. There is a bit of alcohol detected that adds a warming effect. Malt has a hay taste to it and yeast adds a taste of sour apple to it. After taste has a bit of astringency

Mouth feel is light and well carbonated. Head retention isnt good enough to add any creaminess to beer. Finish is a bit dry.

Drink ability is above average but not the best from this style. Most tripels I've had were highly drink able and light but this one was rough around the edges. It's a decent beer but nowhere near the top in it's style
