3.68/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Look: Two finger soapest soap bubble head I've ever seen, off white, died fast. Dark orange (About a 13 SRM), poor lacing, steady carb can be seen.
Smell: Light malt, biscuity, yeasty, citrus, peanut butter? (I thought I was nuts, but I kept my hand over the glass for a moment, then gave a sniff and its there for sure. It's not offensive, just unexpected. I hear that peanut smell means that the yeast eats itself because of the age. I can't find a date on the bottle so thats up in the air.)
Taste: Big banana, light malt, floral, grassy, present alcohol (5.9% ABV, taste more in the range of an 8% IMO, I think this is an older bottle. Yeast ate hearty i'm sure.), peppery, spicy, sweet, medium body, slight syrup, good carb.
Final Thoughts: Although this is MAY be an older bottle, it still has plenty going on. I'm pretty new to the belgian pales, but this one tastes like a lighter tripel. Strong banana on the taste, boozy, etc. It was good, but this is me basing it off of only having two belgian pales before. If your looking for a lighter tripel, buy this, age it a bit, and boom.

4.35/5 rDev +15.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Appearance - Medium copper color with an off-white medium textured airy head with some lace remaining after the head dissipates.
Smell - Lightly soured banana like fruit aroma followed by light sweet alcohol and spicy resiny hops.
Taste - Sweet malt and lightly soured fruit followed by sweet alcohol with a spicy resiny hop finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium viscosity that is clean and light feeling with moderate carbonation, light bitterness, and a mild alcohol warmth as the beer goes down.
Overall - Well balanced with a light feel and very good flavor that gets better as the beer warms closer to stout serving temperature.
