4.03/5 rDev -0.5%
This beer is best served at 50-55F.
Poured in a Orval Trappist glass. Light apricot color with a 1/2 finger head. The aroma was a light apricot/clove- not as strong as other tripels.
The mouth feel is very carbonated- more than other tripels I have tasted. I would have preferred a less carbonated mouth feel.
The taste is light apricot/clove. Not as pronounced as other tripels. The finish is bitter at lower serving temps and mellows at higher temps, where the bitterness is clearly the alcohol in the finish. The taste also mellows at higher temps.
A very good tripel. However, I like a smoother tripel, such as St. Bernardus.

4.21/5 rDev +4%
This beer sits within the median of the color spectrum between yellow and nearly red. It's a bit cloudy, but there's very little by way of "floaties." A sizeable and dense, rocky head is well-retained, and there's good lacing on the walls of the glass.
The yeast shows some strength in the aroma as bready, mildly sweet and somewhat earthy notes with some dryness balance. Tropical fruit is there, and there's some light funk and phenolic character present.
The flavor is dry but set against fruity and yeasty notes, and a light tart/sour combo speaks to bottle fermentation. It's earthy and slightly peppery. Some herbal plant and spiciness provide several different flavor notes from sweet to savory. Otherwise, some tropical and citrus fruits lie underneath.
The mouthfeel shows the Belgian skill in balancing the very delicate and precise character of Belgian styles. It has a not-quite aspirin dryness, a soft flow, creaminess, and light mustiness on the palate.
