look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

appearance: Very clear light golden. Nice enough swath of white head on the pour that mostly recedes.
smell: Sweet and sour nose with bready malts and clove.
taste: Very nice melding of all the characteristics in the nose with an amazingly easy drinkability.
overall: Man, this is a pleasant surprise. Ratings are meh....maybe I'm a Philistine and aren't dinging this for being removed from a traditional Tripel but I just think it's a damn fine brew. This drinks like a small session beer, alcohol nearly imperceptible.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Milky golden straw, wispy lacing, slight foamy head reduces to form circular colonies of froth- reminds me of a petri dish. Colorful bottle artwork, with esoteric symbolism; just looking at it gets me excited.

S: Really fantastic. Tropical fruit, coriander, a touch of yeast and vanilla, maybe some bread in there too.

T: The yeast/hops combination pulls through here, which gives it an overly earthy/metallic note, but the (to my senses) more favorable flavors of fruit and spice are still significant.

M: Light bodied, refreshing. Carbonation is more mild than I would have expected.

O: Pretty darn good, I would prefer a few things to be tweaked, but it's their interpretation, and I can still appreciate the originality. I'll probably return.
