look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Hazy orange with a nice small frothy head, really messy.
Nice spicy yeasts on the nose, with pepper and coriander seed, citrus peel, yellow apple, bit of pear, wheat, a touch of alcoholic warmth.
Sweet orchard fruit up front, lots of apple, pear and quince, some banana, with a light smoked apricot note, slightly artificial, probably from the peated malts. Soft honeyish floral notes, some malt sweetness, lots of spicy yeasts, peppery and herbal. Finishes with a bit of hop too, but not so bitter.
Medium body with a low, smooth carbonation. A bit creamy. Aftertaste has lots of spicy yeasts (big clove), some nice lingering fruitiness too, a bit too sweet.
A decent tripel, but also weird, maybe the elements didn't fit so well.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Opaque and thick bodied appearance, with a nice booming apricot orange, to brass yellow. Head is a very cream forming off white to tan, with about two fingers. Nice creamy top with some whipped up like sheets of lacing. Very nice.

Excellent aroma for a tripel. Good hints of sweet bready like malts, and then some classic fruit pear and juiced apple qualities too. Bakery sweetness, some good controlled candy sugar that's not too out of control, adding to the fruit qualities nicely. Some faint banana, some good variety on the fruit angle, getting into fruit basket quality. Very very good.

Very nice delivering palate. Super creamy mouthfeel, coating with honey and vanilla like tones just amazing and them most impressive thing about the brew it seems. Lots of whipped cream and banana surprising quality in flavor. Warm hints of pear, even some soft tropical melon like qualities. Whipped up body like you could spread it on cake, with a big angel food taste, and soft graham crackers. Lingering spiced nutmeg and even peppermint action on the finish with a nice bit of dryness too.

Overall a great tripel, very different too from the standard Belgians also, very surprised by this as well.
