Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Opaque and thick bodied appearance, with a nice booming apricot orange, to brass yellow. Head is a very cream forming off white to tan, with about two fingers. Nice creamy top with some whipped up like sheets of lacing. Very nice.

Excellent aroma for a tripel. Good hints of sweet bready like malts, and then some classic fruit pear and juiced apple qualities too. Bakery sweetness, some good controlled candy sugar that's not too out of control, adding to the fruit qualities nicely. Some faint banana, some good variety on the fruit angle, getting into fruit basket quality. Very very good.

Very nice delivering palate. Super creamy mouthfeel, coating with honey and vanilla like tones just amazing and them most impressive thing about the brew it seems. Lots of whipped cream and banana surprising quality in flavor. Warm hints of pear, even some soft tropical melon like qualities. Whipped up body like you could spread it on cake, with a big angel food taste, and soft graham crackers. Lingering spiced nutmeg and even peppermint action on the finish with a nice bit of dryness too.

Overall a great tripel, very different too from the standard Belgians also, very surprised by this as well.

500 ml bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a small dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, black pepper, honey, bread, clove, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, black pepper, wheat, honey, bread, clove, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, clove, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/yeast balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is pretty well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice tripel style. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast ester, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
