Had this one years ago. Forgot all about it and ended up with one in a variety pack. So be it. Poured it (what I used to call "Triple Horse") into a snifter. Amber-orange coloring, about a finger of head, little-to-no lacing.

Smells like a cold hot toddy (bet you didn't see that coming). Clove, citrus, honey; smells sweeter than most tripels.

"Yeah?" the old man at the back of the room asks.
"Well, maybe," I reply, "but I'm no expert on Belgian things."

Taste doesn't quite live up to the smell. Oh well. A little syrupy as it goes down. The 10% ABV is well-hidden.

Not spectacular, but decent.

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

A-Clear deep yellow, not much carbonation for head.

S-Heavy on the alcohol. Way too present. Some spices and wheat but the alcohol dominates it.

T-Some spice, wheat and grass. Slight lemon. But the alcohol presence is too much.

M-Lighter, slightly watery, no carbonation.

O-No reason to have this beer be 10%. The alcohol throws off the rest of the flavors, hurting what could have a good beer.
