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

A: clear orange/yellow color with some darker amber notes in the middle of the glass. A beautiful fluffy white head

S: lemongrass, pear, banana, grass, bready malts, green apples and crackers

T: fresh pears and green apple upfront. Earthy lemongrass and a big biscuity crackery malt sweetness behind that. There is a slight funk behind that as well which is nice. Some clove spice towards the end. Finish is another punch of bread and pear

M: heavy mouth with high carbonation. The bready malts give it a bigger mouthfeel as well

O: real nice triple. Light fruits and that little funk and Belgian spice is nice

A nice easy beer to drink. A nice white foamy head. A little bite at the end, but goes away quickly. You can't tell that it is a 8.0% ABV beer. A very good drinking beer.

Poured from 11.2 fluid ounce bottle into glass. Date code on label of 'L 17-068'.
Body is orange/copper color and hazy. Long lasting pillowy white head, settles to thick head, with extensive lacing rings.
Less expressive aroma of bread, peach fruit, and spices.
More expressive taste of sweet bread, sweet fruit (peach, apricot), coriander, cloves. Very slight alcohol intrusion toward the end, and then sweet again.
Medium mouth feel, but coating. Pleasant.
An accomplished Belgian tripel, a little subtle but balanced and expressive throughout.
