Dark yellow with a rich head that lasts throughout the drinking process. Very crisp and fresh. No single flavor stands out, or so I felt, but, by and large, it tasted really good. By far the beer's best attribute is its feeling in one's mouth. It feels very creamy, but not too creamy, not too much like cough syrup or something. It drives that fine line between too heavy and too smooth perfectly. The taste is consistently good, with a mellow spiciness. A lot of sweetness. Heartily enjoyed.

Appearance - Looks like a classic Tripel.
Smell - Smells I think quite sweet. Maybe too sweet for my taste.
Taste - Taste is similar to smell and I do think it is too sweet for my taste.
Mouthfeel - Well carbonated and crisp.
Overall - Just too sweet for my taste. Seems to be well made.

A: Looks exactly how you want a Belgian Tripel to look; hazy, unfiltered, considerable amount of orange and yellow all the way up to the head
S: Smells like orange and lemon zest, with a slight aroma of hops. Could smell stronger
T: After having a considerable amount of Belgians in my 5 months in Belgium/Netherlands, this is pretty comparable. It has a great orange and citrus taste that is not overwhelming but compliments that slightly toasted malts and the conservative amount of hops. Also taste coriander and a not too strong amount of wheat and grains Definitely does a Belgian justice, even if it is all the way in Eastern Pennsylvania. Definitely cannot taste as much alcohol as their actually is in the beer
M: Fairly smooth, but it should have been at least a little bit more effervescent to give the beer a necessary bite
O: Would definitely recommend it to Belgian bier lovers since it is almost like Weyerbacher played it safe and just tried to emulate what all good Belgians taste like. While they do not do anything to try and alter the perspective of a Belgian Tripel, they do a great job of resembling the flavors of some of the best Tripels in the world
