3.81/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured a cloudy copper tinted with slight orange hue body that had a large head thanks to intense carbonation. Aroma has that standard Belgian yeast aroma with hints of orange/citric notes and candi sugar, along with possible sweet malts. Medium bodied beer that is real smooth thanks to healthy yeast addition to beer, some candi sugar and tropical fruit sweetness, bits of caramel and/or toffee malt sweetness as well. Not a bad beer at all but the hoppy bitterness and spices one finds in a tripel for balance are muted and beer is sweet to point of cloying and can be a bit of chore to finish whole bottle (at least sweetness hides the booze). Perhaps only complaint of beer, other than sweetness, is that the booze and spices occasionally overpower the finish and leads to a finish that just doesn't match beer.

Pours a hazy copper body with a rich and frumpy head with excellent retention. Aromas are sweet and alcoholic. My nose gets a lot of honey and tropical fruit; the heat coming off this beer is undeniable and a bit disappointing. Big fruit flavors with a hint of caramel and spices combine in a way that almost medicinal. It was a fun tripel to try but one that, for the price, I probably won't try again.

drinking from a typical tulip shaped Belgium glass..... looks good with good lacing a golden clear with a touch of red amber. anyway its decent flavor with a some of the spice and booze flavor/smell. not awesome but good okish.....not a bad but not a good mouth feel either thwt i love from trips....overall its got a boozy flavor that aint bad but underwhelms......some of the other barrel room beers from SA are pretty dqrn good but this one is just ok to goodl.. 10 % abv will get you there though (if that's where you are going)

From the (hard to open) bottle, it pours amber with a nice head, well burnished by the addition of a steady stream of bubbles from the bottom. Opening the bottle must have been on me, as this is definitely NOT barely carbonated. Hoppy to the nose, barely sweet on the tongue with no hop flavor. Enjoyable, easy to drink (other than opening the cork!) and dangerous!
2017 review: Yum!

A very loud pop of the cork & we are off. A hazy translucent orange with generous cream colored head. Hops dominate the aroma, heady, some spice & a little orange fragrance too. But overall not a very strong aroma. It has a fair amount of sweetness & with its fruity flavors is a bit like a soda, no bitterness or alcohol flavor. The body becomes much clearer as the head diminishes. Very nice feel. I like it. Excellent!

A - a foamy bastard, and the cork was tiny and long. Goofy airy foam several fingers worth, high clarity for a "tripel" soft orange amber tons of carbonation 3.25

S - high hops. Bitter, starchy, 2.75

T - sweet creamy malty much more true to style. 3.5

M - great mouthful. 4

D - overall adequate oddity, good for a macro. Had to go back and take away a point due to the disproportionately strong hangover this beer caused.2.5
