Hazy and golden in color with lots of visible carbonation. Fizzy bright white head. Medicinal and herbal nose with some clove.

Very big body but with lots of carbonation. Flavors are very subdued. Subtle phenolic and clove flavors up fruit with a moderate hop finish. Flavors are clean and blended well but not sure if they all work together the best. Phenolic and slightly sour aftertaste. The hops attempt to cut some of the sweetness but only do so moderately.

Slightly offbeat but not exactly what I want from a tripel. A bit too medicinal for me with a slightly chalky mouthfeel. Not a bad beer but id take a merry monks over this anyway.

Pours a dense golden orange with a lingering white head and some lacing.
Has a very fruity nose. Apricots, banana, pineapple. Lots of herbal and spicey notes and belgian yeast. Very enticing.
Taste has quite a bit of belgian yeast and spice. Coriander & clove. Some fruitiness as described in the aroma and honey for a welcome sweetness and an underlying hop presence all makes for a well balanced and exceptional tasting beer.
Medium to full body with a long dry finish with just a bit of both the sweetness and hop bitterness carrying through. Smooth with the perfect carbonation and plenty of warming alcohol. Really enjoying sipping on this one.
