look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance – A beautiful semi-opaque golden color. A gorgeous head that lasts a very long time. Some microscopic sediment floating around, but too small to hinder the look.

Smell – A very nice spicy honey scent with some graininess and a nice touch of booze.

Taste – An nice spice with a slight sweetness, bread, and a good boozey flavor.

Mouthfeel – Medium body with medium-light carbonation. Smooth.

Drinkability – This is a great tripel; one of my favorite.

A real big off white long lasting head rests above a almost clear particle filled golden honey colored well carbonated beer.

A well balanced nose with a multitude of smells coming through, cloves, banana, grains, yeast, prunes, grapes, and light spices.

Grains are mixed with light fruits and lighter spices to give this beer a well balanced easy to drink taste that isn't weak at the same time.

A medium bodied beer that seems to have a very slight syrupy quality that lends itself to a light dry aftertaste that has quite a bit of a lingering quality.

I could drink quite a few of these, if your buying, a little pricey compared the bulk of the beers around here.
