3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Seems to have a pink peppercorn and spicy like start. Not a mealy American example, which is great, but its not too floral. Its a thick somewhat sweet fruitiness, with some spices and that pink peppercorn. Yeasty and estery start to finish. Its interesting, and a bit different from a lot of others. Warming, but not alcoholic. Peppery finish. Very interesting and unexpected.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled on 9/05/2013. Pours moderately hazy golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pear, apricot, apple, orange, honey, bread, candi sugar, coriander, clove, light pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of pear, apple, apricot, orange, honey, bread, candi sugar, coriander, clove, light pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pear, apple, apricot, orange, honey, bread, candi sugar, coriander, clove, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth and moderately slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Tripel style. All around great balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
