Not a bad tripel. Good sweet flavor with a small alcohol burn.

12 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled on 7/22/2014. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, banana, clove, pepper, light bubblegum, wheat, bread, candi sugar, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and pale/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, banana, clove, pepper, light bubblegum, wheat, bread, candi sugar, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, banana, clove, pepper, light bubblegum, wheat, bread, candi sugar, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast and pale/bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Tripel style. All around good complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast and pale/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

This is a pretty uneven tripel that ends up being fairly easy drinking for the style.

It pours clear and yellow with little head. The aroma is a bit light, but inoffensive. The taste is pretty good, though not overly complex (not complex enough). It has a malty, yeasty component and not much else. It stays in the mouth pleasantly.

I would not seek this out again, but if I bought one by mistake it wouldn't be the end of the world. If they weren't quite so expensive they would be be an OK value, but $2.18/bottle is too much for this. There are loads of better ones.
