This poured with a hazy apricot orange color and a head with tons of life.

The aroma was sadly simple but overly fragrant. I caught strong banana and clove or peppercorn but that was about it.

The flavor is unlike the nose as its vastly complex with honey, maple syrup, yeast, clove, sweet green Apple and pear. The finish is a bit twangy as it there's a sour note.

The feel is slick and full but the carbonation is fuller and expansive.

Never been a huge fan of Tripels but I must say the flavor of this is amongst the most complex I've seen and it makes this well worth the try.

On tap at Thirsty Monk, Asheville NC

A- pours clear and golden with a small creamy white head with lace that sticks to the sides the entire way down as it settles

S- lots of fruity aromas up front of dried apple, ripe pear, peach and banana. Fresh baked bread aroma kicks in mid-palate with some peppery notes and clove. Earthy aromas and wet hay finish out the aroma

T- dry and fruity up front with big notes of banana and clove, lightly toasted fresh bread notes kick in, adding some sweet doughy notes. Peppery notes with citrus, lemongrass and hay close out the flavor, leaving a dry finish

M- medium body and carbonation, super creamy mouthfeel with a dry finish

O- sweet and creamy with nice banana and pear notes. Definitely one of the better Belgian Tripel's that I've had a chance to try
