Belgian tripels are not my thing but this was very pleasant. Nice balance and not too herbal/floral. Still wouldn’t drink it without food.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a light hazy yellow color with a large frothy head. Aromas of yeast, flowers and citris. Tastes of citris with very light spices. An OK beer but struck me as a little light/weak for a Tripel.

Has a large head for a pale ale, so pour slowly. The aroma is flowery and the taste is on the sweet side, although it seems a bit watery.
