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

Pours amber gold, with a large fluffy off-white head which dissipates slowly and leaves tons of lacing.

Smell is Belgian yeast, a hint of spice, lightly roasted malt, caramel and booze.

Taste is tangy, fruity apricot tang, medium malts and tangy yeast aftertaste round this out.

Feel is light, especially for 10%abv. Plenty of carbonation lightens up this medium to heavy brew. A nice bite from the alcohol makes not quite easy to drink.

I enjoyed this beer, a great Belgian experience, just not as good as the others out there...

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the stubby 11.2 ounce bottle. This has a beautiful presentation--orange/amber in color, clear, and a thick, fluffy head that isn't going anywhere. Carbonation is active.

The nose has notes of apple cider, brown candy sugar, clove, tarragon, sage, black pepper, orange peel, and cinnamon. There are some earthy undertones to this beer, too...of wet wood, damp leaves, and pollen.

The flavor has sweet citrus elements to it. It carries some warm bread tones, honey, white grapes, and maybe fennel. There are also some notes of dark fruit in here, such as plum and raisin--which brings with it a bit of a sweet, yet still a bit funky taste to the beer.

In terms of alcohol, the high ABV is quite present--both on the palate and as it goes down--very warming. The beer, though, is actually quite smooth--in body and in flavor. A lingering breath of clove, banana, and plum seems to hang around.

Overall, a good beer--solid, interesting, and drinkable--though I wouldn't have more than one in a sitting, for sure.

A- Dark amber color, moderate head.

S- Simple aroma of dark fruits and candy sugar.

T- Simple flavor of dark fruits and candy sugar. A touch of wet paper. Ethanol.

M, D- This tripel I find to just not have an acceptable level of drinkability. It is flat, cloying, and is like a chore to finish due to its heavy, sweet, cumbersome construction. Lacking pleasure and inspiration.

A-much deeper amber color than most tripels. Wondering if dark candi sugar was used instead of clear.

S-yes, dark candi sugar is noted due to a nuttier more molasses/toffee smell. Belgian banana smell is also strong.

T-candi sugar, banana/bubble gum from belgian yeast, nice cloviness with the abv very well hidden. May have a slight spice on the back of the throat too.

M-very light and bubbly, lacing on glass is phenomenal. Instead of drinking IPA's in the summer, I may switch to this. Very good Tripel in my books!!
