3.83/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 12 oz bottle into Schooner Glass
Appearance: 2" off white head recedes slowly and leaves significant lacing. Golden color and slightly cloudy with large amount of carbonation.
Aroma: coriander, clove, fresh yeast rolls, a tinge of alcohol
Mouthfeel: not light, but not quite medium bodied. Watery and highly carbonated with a crisp, dry, refreshing finish.
Flavor: the funky Belgian yeast is always an adventure (one I personally enjoy greatly). The coriander and other spices are evident in the flavor and blend well with the sweet malt backbone and the hop bite.
Overall: outstanding, especially for the price range.

A-a clear golden color with a fingers worth of white head with good retention

S-pale malt, fruity sweetness spices, citrus, and Belgian yeast

T-taste is similar to the smell, pretty sweet but with a mild hop bitterness in the finish

M-medium body, high carbonation

Overall an easy to drink Tripel, though a little too sweet for my liking

Trippel pours a clear golden color with a nice long lasting lacing head. There is a a rich and spicy aroma, hints of coriander, lots of alcohol. The taste is very crisp, good noticeable amount of spices, hints of orange, good malt backbone. Nice flavors, a tad bit weak. Overall its not as rich as other trippels but has a very nice crisp fruity flavor.
