A: Dark gold with a small white head of delicate bubbles.
S: Biscuits and peppy yeasty esters. Typically Belgian.
T: Nice and crisp. A roasty biscuity backbone with that classic Belgian medicinal (phenolic) note which I think is related to that red winey bubblegum flavour. I think I know what I'm talking about. Sherbet-like citrus in the finish. Almost dry.
M: Frothy mouthfeel but has a soft effervescence. Gives you a nice snap of bubbles as you swallow.
O: I'm so completely bored of Belgian beer but thinking objectively it's not bad.

33 cl bottle poured into a St. Martins tulip. Best by of May 2015.

Aroma of hops and sweetness.

Appealing appearance - medium amber with a solid white head. Good retention with little lacing.

Perhaps I would like this better with more age on the bottle. All the flavor elements seemed to be competing rather than uniting. Sugar followed by a metalic tang and occaisional tastes of phenols, hops and honey. Surprisingly strong alcohol taste for an 8% abv.

Overall pleasing, but i would not buy this again.

3.71/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a cloudy rust color with a decent head (though not nearly as impressive as it should be for a Belgian); a few splashes of lace remain

Smell: Bread and sugary cake frosting with hints of stone fruit and phenols

Taste: Bready and slightly sweet, up front, with a spicy phenols developing along with the stone fruit flavors; after the swallow, apricot, coriander and honey tones build, though there is a lingering tartness to the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Perhaps a bit too much age on this one but an interesting Tripel; I like that it is not overly sweet like many others I have tried; the carbonation appears to have suffered over time, limiting the score

Thanks, briiguy, for the opportunity
