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.

Poured into a chimay chalice, color is dense straw with a light frothy head that dissipates quickly.

Smell is of yeast, light ester, bananas cloves, very feint fruitiness and some light malt notes.

Taste is a mixture of yeasty fruitiness, apricots, bananas, esters hints of orange.

Mouthfeel is slightly strong on the tongue but cleans nicely for a strong brew.

Overall, this is a great brew, perfect example of the style nice off yeast flavors and feint alcohol undertones.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Batch 169 from 750ml bottle poured into large, wide mouth stemmed wine glass.

Slightly cloudy golden hue with massive 3 finger head with strong retention.

The aroma is out of this world. Sweet smell with complex dried fruit pineapple and honey like with some spice of the yeast strain.

Taste alot of grain and big candied sugar ester fruit followed by some hop bite that lingers on the tongue after taste. I expected a sweeter more balanced taste but I loved this.

Mouth feel super creamy and soft with a crisp clean finish from the natural carbonation. Goes down so easy.

A: Poured into a tulip glass. A pale orange color with a thick, fluffy white head and sheet of lacing on the glass.

S: Belgian spice with some tropical fruit and grassy hop.

T: A nice sweet malt flavor with some pineapple, lemon and hop. A big boozy flavor that burns into the finish that is sweet and slightly bitter.

M: Medium bodied with high carbonation that adds a nice peppery feel to the beer.

O: A very good tripel. A great example of one of my favorite styles of beer.
