look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Poured a light golden with a light yeast haze. The last bit poured out reinforced the sediment haze. A inch or so of big bubbled foam rose up, but mostly reverted to a thin layer of white bubbles.

S: Light straw and golden wheat. Yeasty be easiness. Slight graphite.

T: Starts off mildly sweet with a honey and wheat note again. Earthy wormwood comes through the sweetness. Mild taste of decomposing fresh grass clippings. Some fruitiness with apple and orange. very mild bittering finishes with a longer lingering sweetness.

M: Somewhat light but with a longer lingering syrupy sweetness. Aftertaste is long and salty.

O: A little ligher than I expected, but nice and easy and approachable. Don't really notice the 9% alcohol.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Bottle marked 090M 03 23 at 55 degrees into snifter
Aroma of apples
Head average (4 cm), white, creamy/fizzy, rapidly diminishing to 1 cm ring with partial layer
Lacing Ok, some islands of various size
Body golden, slight haze from yeast
Flavor begins with yeasty phenolics and some alcohol. This fades to a light hop bitterness. No spicyness, no diacetyl. Slow stomach burn.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation.

Kind of a “meh” tripel, OK but not exciting. Worth trying once.
