3.83/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours an opaque, orangey-copper body with a full, foamy, white head that never died.

Smell: Aroma smelling deeply of oak, spice, and, for what it's worth, red wine!

Taste: Light maltiness with, perhaps, some sweetish candi sugar hints. Everything takes a backseat to the oak and red wine. A taste of spiced banana emerges later on as it warms a bit. Dash of apricot juice on the heavily oaken finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: I'll be honest with ya, I've never been a huge fan of tripels, so it's nice to actually come across a tripel aspiring for greatness (as well as aspiring for grapeness, I suppose).
