Dark orange with brilliant hues, topped with a pure white foamy head. Decent lace and retention.
Yeasty, some mustiness, and light phenols in the aroma. Very gentle.
Smooth mouthfeel, touch of bittiness, and creamy on the palate. Upfront light citric twang on the palate that's pronounced by a tight carbonation. Notes of herbal, alcohol heat and spice. All of this gets quelled by a big malty sweet profile. Loads of caramel throws down in an almost syrupy consistency. More alcohol burn and esters. Over-ripe banana. Toasty bread crusts. Faint vanilla. Lingering alcohol spice.
Not all that bad, but this Tripel seems to lack some balance, thus the alcohol is allowed to be the more dominant character. I would have preferred a bit more hop character and dryness, less sweetness, and a sneaking alcohol.
