Deep hazy dark straw color, a bit cloudy, with sparkling activity. Dense foamy and frothy white 3-4 finger head, lasting around 15-20 minutes, with strong legs and a good swirl reaction. Flavors of wheat, coriander, lemon, soft clove, light grapefruits, Belgian and wild yeast, sweet grains and floral hops. Slick and smooth full body with extra crispy carbonation, almost champagne like. Medium strength finish, soft hay, bready, with lots of dry hops. Good accessibility, but an under-intensified tripel. Lacks complexity and further Belgian qualities, even with all the yeast in. Slightly unbalanced with too much hops I find, feels more like a double witbier/IPA. Overall the quality is okay, could easily be a very good one with a bit of tweaking, or it didn't reacted well to the cellar (3 months).

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - This beer pours a murky golden color that is a little darker than yellow but lighter than orange. The head is white and very much Duvel reminiscent in that its huge and lasts forever. God this looks pretty fantastic. This would have been a 4.5 - 4.75 to me if it was clearer.

Aroma - apple grape tartyness, some sweet pear, banana, clove, peach, lemon zest and a fresh bread aroma from the yeast. Its not as light as white bread but definitely not as strong as brown.

Taste - Apple peal, lemon zest, boozyness, peach, grape, clove, pepper, and some fresh bread. Very nice Tripel

Feel - Medium body with a velvety feel, there is some boozy bitterness this is definitely not a beginners tripel.

Overall - This is a great Tripel for someone who has experienced at least a few of them and likes stronger beers. The booze is not as well covered up as it is in most which is funny because at 8 percent its lower abv than most. however for someone who is used to stronger beers this just adds a layer of intricacy, The peach is different but it works and all and all this is a pretty good tripel. IF you have not tried a Tripel before try a Westmalle or La Fin du Monde first!

A:
Pours a cloudy pale apricot that is between white, gold and orange with a spectacular 3+ fingers of creamy, rocky head that is pretty much permanent. Great retention; sticky icky lacing. Gorgeous.

S:
Immensely fruity with a bready backbone. Lightly tart up front with stone fruits—unripe peaches and apricots, lemon zest, white pepper.

T:
Fresh and fruity. Peach, warm dough, pretty boozy, white raisins; with a gradually warming medicinal finish.

M:
Velvety, hot, and coating. Medium bodied, but not the most drinkable thing ever. Excelent carbonation with soft feel overall. Pretty long, warm, finish.

O:
Very nice tripel.
This is a tasty beer and is a fine example of the style (says I). Pours like a true Belgian, with perfect head, nice carbonation to offset/enhance how creamy it feels, luscious lacing, etc. The taste is quite fruity and fresh but maintains some of the breadiness from the nose. Really nice beer.
Would have again; worth getting ahold of.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice deep hazy golden color to it. It has a nice thick white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves lovely lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of Belgian yeast, peppery spices, apples, citrus and some floral notes. Very nice.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a Belgian yeast, pepper, some breadiness, apple/citrus fruitiness and some floral notes.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Snifter.

A: Big gusher, beware. Leaves me with four fingers of white bubbly soap and a couple inches of pale yellow liquid. The beer just keeps rising and I eventually have to pour it into multiple glasses.

S: Pronounced pear and golden delicious apple notes with a little stone fruit. Floral aromatics blend with pepper-like phenols and some spicy hop character. Malt is redolent of sweet breads.

T: Sweet bready malt melds with pronounced apple and pear esters. Lightly peppery with earth and a touch of lemon. Floral notes are evident in the flavor. Herbal and mineral are present in the lightly bitter finish.

M: Lower medium body with high carbonation.

Overall: The gushing was distracting but the beer was pretty enjoyable. Pleasant esters and phenols riding atop sweet bread.
