A: lightly hazy honey - golden. 4 finger plus, frothy white, foamy head. lots o bubbles.
S: takes me straight to a brewery - Belgium yeast, fermenting goodness. big banana, apricot fruit, clove.
T: follows nose - sweet, big banana, apricot fruit, w. clove spice. bit of pepper/rye on the finish.
M: medium body, good carbonation. crisp.
O: well crafted. style is a bit too sweet for my sweet spot, so nice to bottle share, as this is a well crafted brew meant to be appreciated. but unlike liberace, I do not believe that too much of a good thing is wonderful - its simply too much. *F yeah, I just incorporated liberace into a BA review!!
batch 193. 750 mL bottle.

4.71/5 rDev +13.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
Poured from batch #203.
Appearance: Deep yellow almost honey colored with slight amber hues. Nice two to three finger choppy cream colored head that held on and left a nice lace on the glass throughout the drink.
Smell: Yeasty with apricots, hints of cherries, earthy tones, hints of citrus. All and all very complex in the nose.
Taste: Quick hit of sweetness upfront, followed by a complex mix of fruit, heavy apricot and strange plum like flavors. Followed up quickly by yeasty earth tones and just the slightest hop kick. Clean finish, lingering just long enough to make you want another taste. Slight alcohol warming in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium carbonation, easy drinking especially for a tripel. Smooth and enjoyable.
Overall: One of the best tripels I've ever tried. Really look forward to trying future batches of this one to see if and how it changes.
