Pours a clear light gold after gushing all over the place when I popped the cap. Nice looking with a solid 1" head of foam and nice lacing.

It smells malty sweet with the sweet actually being more like honey than caramel. Yeasty as well with another sweet note reminiscent of candi sugar.

Honey dominates the taste factor with some candi sugar and well, no perceivable bitterness to balance it out. Tripel...

Lightish body and despite the gushing, the carbonation is okay.

Bottled the 145th day of 2014, from the mixed 6 pack.

Pours gold with white head that leaves sticky lace. Nose is a bit dull...nothing special. Taste was better, honey is most prominent flavor. Some other reviewer state it is dry...not sure how that's possible since mine is overly sweet. Sweetness became more prominent as beer warmed. Full mouthfeel but little finish.

Poured from bottle into tulip. Small white head, which quickly dissolves with no lacing left behind. Some lazy bubbles, medium/medium low carbonation. So far, seems a little off for the style. Clear gold color, gorgeous, really. Full mouthfeel, thicker than expected. Aroma of spices, cloves, coriander, banana, white grapes. Taste follows, more grapes, with some pear. Most of the backend is pear. Smooth, no hint of alcohol.
