4/5 rDev +3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a chalice
Appearance: golden-orange in color, cloudy, minimal head, moderate carbonation, sediment
Smell: wheat, light hay, and apricot
Taste: complex--a lot going on..apricot and banana dominate but also has hay, orange, earth, and light pepper
Mouthfeel: light body, sweet and funky, high carbonation.
Overall: Lighter than most I have had in the style and also more complex. Does not have some of the bittering alcohol that I usually find in the style..so that is why I would drink this one sooner than most. I like the banana and apricot fruity mix.

4.2/5 rDev +9.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from bottle into chalice glass
Appearance – Pours a slightly hazed orange color with a one finger white head that fades relatively fast to leave a decent level of lacing.
Smell –A big fruity sweet aroma is heavy of banana, apple, and some light citrus. These aromas are matched by a strong yeasty and bready smell. Mixed with these are some nice spice smells as well as an almost candy like sweet smell. The aroma is nice for the triple style and is overall delicious.
Taste – The taste starts out with a bready and citrus flavor. As the taste advances the fruit sweetness intensifies with the citrus getting stronger and joined by some other lighter fruit flavors of apple and pear. At this point the yeasty and banana flavors also come to the tongue. The banana makes the taste even fruitier while the yeasty complements both the bready and fruit flavors quite well. Toward the end of the flavor profile a sugary sweet candy flavor comes to the tongue and is joined by a moderate alcohol flavor and a light spice flavor. The flavors all meld together nicely in the end and produce a sweet and warming taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly creamier and thicker side with a carbonation level that is average. The average carbonation and thicker body allow the beer to coat the tongue and bath it in all the nice sweet, spice and alcohol flavors.
Overall - A sweet and tasty triple with quite a nice flavor profile and a great feel. This is a good one to try and a fantastic sipping Belgian Triple.
