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

Appearance: A light straw color with a good white head, leaves good lacing

Smell: Malty sweetness, Belgian yeast

Taste: Fruity, peppery, yeasty, malty... this tastes like a highly complex version of what I expect from a tripel. You would never know it is high in alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body, high carbonation, very smooth and refreshing

Overall: A great example of the Belgian Tripel style. It is awesome, I highly recommend it, especially if you like the style.
