4.13/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, honey, and spices. Taste is much the same with a sweet finish and an alcohol kick on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a great smell but the alcohol is a bit too noticeable for my liking.

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.
