So, this brew poured with a one finger white head that left signficant lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy yellow color, much to be expected. Due to the color and cloudiness, there was not a lot of visible carbonation. On the nose, I got a lot of fruit, specifically apple and tropical fruit. I wonder if this is the passion fruit that they mention would be apparent on the label. I don’t know exactly what passion fruit smells like, but maybe this is it? On the taste, I definitely get bread. The fruit pretty much gets lost in the taste. Although after it warms a bit, I do get some hints of lemon. I got the booze mostly on the finish of the beer. This was a little less syrupy than I expected, although I really haven’t had a lot of Belgians to be able to expect a lot. Although the booze isn’t exactly hidden, it isn’t obnoxious either. I would have this again, but this a brew that you can’t have too many of.

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.
