3.93/5 rDev -4.8%
poured from a 750ml bottle into a 2L beer mug.
A - Pours a crystalline, just slightly hazy orange amber with two thick, luxurious fingers of soapy head that linger forever. Looks delicious.
S - A bit too boozy on the nose, with a very slight hop character and that familiar tripel candy sweetness.
T - Smooth, malty, sweet, and slightly spiced. Also an overtone of citrus. Pretty darned refreshing and satisfying.
M - carbonation is modest and body is light. Little bit of alcohol burn.
Overall - It drinks really easy for its ABV, so be careful. I polished off the whole bomber without problems. All in all, It's a good baseline representation of the Tripel style. It tastes great but is otherwise not unique. If that's your jam, you will like this one. But if sweet, spicy Belgian ales are not your thing, this one won't convince you otherwise. There are beers I'd buy over this one, but I'd never turn this one down if offered. I definitely recommend giving it a try.
