A-Pours a hazy orange/yellow hybrid. Head is big, doughy and fluffy. Thick, sporadic lacing.

S-Aroma is pleasant. I am usually far from enamored with Tripels, especially in the aroma. It's rich with Belgian yeast, spice and fruit but I find the yeast to be far less overpowering than many of the style. It's pretty nice.

T-Again, the yeast doesn't come on too strong and there is a bunch of juicy fruit (peach, apple, pear). Light spiciness. He best part of the flavor (which I don't find in most of the style)'is a fairly robust, sweet, crackery maltiness. It's the best part.

M-Quite drinkable. I will attribute most of that to its relatively low ABV for the style. Softer carbonation.

O/D-One of the better Tripels I have tried. I shouldn't be surprised, it's a classic for those who lose the style. The depth of the beer's maltiness was by far the biggest takeaway for me.

A - Bright orange/yellow, no clarity, lots of head and sticky lace left all over the glass. Yes, exactly like a Tripel should look like

S - Fruit, orange, mild sugar candy.

T - Smooth! ABV totally hidden. Dried fruit, and a great balance.

M - Lots of carbonation and sizzles in your mouth

O - This brew grew on me as I drank it. By the end, I am a believer.
