look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Picked up a couple of singles from Total Wine back at the end of April for $2.29 per bottle. Best before 1-31-2017.

Beer poured golden with a thin wispy head that is hanging around.

Nose has classic Belgian esters, hints of apple and maybe some lemon.

Taste is coriander forward to the point where it overwhelms the base beer. Apple and lemon linger in the back.

Overall not a bad beer but no where near a classic Belgian tripel.

3.31/5  rDev -10.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A - Pours golden yellow with a two-finger head that lasts a few minutes and has a bit of lacing.

S - Quite mild. Aroma of a domestic Pilsner, with a little sweet added.

T - Not much character in this beer. Tastes very mild. A little sweet, a little pine, a little herb. ABV is well-hidden.

M - A little carbonation, but not a rich beer.

O - Belgian Tripels that are actually from Belgium are better than this beer. I was underwhelmed by this beer.
