look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

330 ml bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours moderately cloudy golden amber color with a thin white head with poor retention, that reduces to a thin ring of lace. Minimal lacing on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, clove, pepper, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of pear, apple, apricot, white grape, clove, light pepper, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pear, apple, apricot, white grape, clove, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt flavors; with a good malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this was a good tripel. Good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

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

Appearance: Rather hazy medium brown body, crowned by a modest , thin white head, which soon collapses to a dusting of foam. The lacing is thin and scattered. Little carbonation is present, and there is a moderate amount of suspended sediment.

Aroma: Robust aroma of coriander and cloves, sweet vinous alcohol, bitter apple, moderate earthy yeast, and bread-like wheat notes..

Taste: The taste begins with a moderate wave of coriander and cloves, soon followed by a moderate wave of spicy alcohol. Slight bitter apple notes are present as well. Late in the taste, there are moderate grassy hop notes, which linger on well after the end of the taste..

Mouth feel: Smooth and fairly full, pleasant..

Drinkability/notes: A pleasant, somewhat understated example of the style.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard eleven point two ounce Euro-style brown glass long-neck bottle with a pry -off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
