look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a murky golden with orange in the center, small off white head on an aggressive pour not much lace.

Aroma is sweet malts, with touches of honey, almost wheat like notes, some fruity esters pear, banana, apricot. Good yeast notes hints of spice. Little strange almost a mix of a Tripel and a Hefe, but it smells nice.

Taste is surprising like the nose good sweet malts fruity notes with finish yeast notes and hints of spice. Definite Hefe notes again with clove being dominate spice. Not as sweet or candy sugary as most Tripel's seem to be for me this is a plus.

Mouthfeel is medium with fairly mellow carbonation for the style.

Overall little strange I would say its got a touch of Hefe in it not your normal Tripel. Don't find it overly sweet as I do many of the style. I am enjoying this one and would be up for having it again maybe I need to revisit the Tripel as a style because I use to avoid them.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of strong belgian yeast, citrus, floral notes, hops, sweet malt, and alcohol. Fits the style of a Tripel. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong belgian yeast, citrus, floral notes, hops, sweet malt, and alcohol. Overall, good appearance, lacking in balance, good body and aroma.

Poured from 32 oz growler into snifter.

A: Slighly hazy golden orange with 1-2 finger white head that settles to a thin ring around the edges. Little to no lacing.

S: Banana and clove mixed with sweet fruits - apricot and pears. Some floral qualities to the aroma.

T: Candied oranges, banana, and cloves. Alcohol is very well hiden. I never would have guessed the 9.7% ABV.

M: Medium to full body with light carbonation. Finish is a touch sweet.

O: Very nice American version of a Tripel.

A delightful triple; nice color (deep, dense orange flirting on the brown side) though the one I drank was a little hazy. Fair head retention with lacing. The aroma is one of the best features of the beer having a sweet citrusy scent that suggests the flavor but with sweeter brighter accents than the flavor itself. The flavor is pretty typical of a good tripel; orangey, with subtle floral notes and a even subtler and pleasant warming alcohol aftertaste.
