Notes/Commercial Description:
This strong golden ale is marked by passion fruit and herbal notes in the aroma, with suggestions of banana and honey in the complex palate. The Tripel has a remarkably long and smooth finish.

4.25/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: A delicious orange with an amber tinge, and a healthy head. I hesitate to give it a five but really how could it look any better, perhaps swirling silvery sparkles or some sort of acid induced hallucination. The lacing is good and the the head thins out towards the middle.

Smell: The smell is faint, sweet pineapple and alcohol.

Taste: Sweeter than I would have expected, The sweetness hits you first, very fruity from a mix of delicious esters and some glorious hops no doubt, the alcohol is quite sneaky and here I am 3/4 of the way through the bottle and I'm in that perfect fleeting state of euphoria, respect that 9%, the finish is complexity at its finest, you can taste it all the aromatic hops the sweet malt and esters and the alcohol.

Mouthfeel: On the high end of the style.

Drinkability: This beer has renewed my fervor for beer, after a few disappointing stouts. World Class!

3.45/5  rDev -16.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - cloudy golden body with a towering head when first poured that shrinks but sticks around

N - all I get from this is a breast yeast aroma. Not bad but I was expecting more fruit

M - creamy carbonated feel

T - again, bready yeast but I can also pick up some banana flavor. I also get some tart sour favors on the finish

O - this was my first tripel. I liked it. Maybe I was expecting too much but I wanted more fruit tones. I'll have to try some European variations for comparison but overall a nice brew that I wouldn't mind having again.
