Love the Belgian Tripels, couldn't wait to try this one. Nice golden pour with a decent head. So far so good, Typical sweet/complex aroma - fruits, breads, yeast, spices, malt, alcohol - very nice. Flavor is more of the same, starts out great than bang....sweet, sweet and more sweet. Almost thick and syrupy. Really need to rinse the sweet out of my mouth, it felt sticky. Couldn't finish it, sorry

Poured out a golden color with golden highlights and a small, tan head. It smelled yeasty with notes of grains, banana and clove. It tasted fruity and spicy with a good caramel kick. It was crisp and sharp.

Bottled on 11/17/14. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a burnt golden with a subtle haze, but still had some clarity; fluffy white head that fades leaving very nice retention and solid lacing with some floaties/sediment. The aromas are on the sweeter side with hints of caramel and vanilla. Lots of cherries with hints of banana and green apple. The yeast notes are there, but don't dominate. The flavors are pretty clean. More cherry with some banana notes. Not spicy. More green apple with some pear. Very subtle syrup notes in the finish, but it's a clean brew. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Dangerously drinkable. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with active carbonation. It's smooth and easy very easy to drink.

This is a nice brew. I never had it fresh, but I can say it has aged well. Although this might not stack up to the tripels that are brewed overseas, it's still a very nice and enjoyable brew. I really like it.
