3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Pours cloudy golden-orange hue with a durable off-white head. The head lasted until the beer was gone, thoroughly coated the glass with lace when tilted, and left some patchy lacing on the glass.
Aroma & T: Complex and sweet aroma features tropical fruits, pear, and light spices. The taste has these characteristics too, but add some tartness, traces of wild and Belgian yeast, and some alcohol esters.
M: Medium body; medium-high but soft carbonation.
O: Excellent and well-balanced mix of flavors and aromas: an impressive Tripel even by Belgian standards.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pours a nice frothy head that laces the glass. Poured into a tulip glass for Belgian brews, hints of banana and spice, but not overwhelming, allows the gentle hops, light malt and dry profile to show through. Outstanding effort, a slight alcohol booziness. Drinking in the chill of March today, expect this would still be enjoyable on a warm July evening.
