Bottle from RBC. Aroma of a tripel with lemon, orange, and apricot lagery notes. Flavor is Belgian yeast, very slight sweetness, and Meyer lemon. Not a bad little beer, but it wasn't a huge standout in my mind. Pretty good beer.

750 ml bottle, used a tulip glass. Nice unfiltered gold color. Thin white head. Nose is fruity with nose yeast profile. Melons mostly for nose.
Taste is a bit different. Yeast is there but I get a dried sugary fruit flavor. Finish is sweet with sugar a light Belgian spice. Dry finish. Nice brew, thanks goes out to Adam Jackson on sharing this one.

Stored in the cellar for a while...maybe 4 months? Enjoyed in a Delirium glass at cellar temp so around 62 degrees.
A - 1-finger yellow-ish head that subsided quick to nothing. SRM of 9. Dark slightly dark hues of gold and orange. Minor haze but overall pretty clear.
S - Very sweet. Pears and bright flowers. pollen and honeysuckle. big bright smell. Apples? It’s really gorgeous.
T - Wow. Super nice. Mild hop aroma is dominated by apples and oranges. Melons. yeah, lots of melons and a hint of vanilla. Honey brightness on the finish.
M - 40% carbonation on the mouth swish. Medium body with a crisp finish. Honestly, the mouthfeel is not reminiscent of a belgian strong ale. More like a Saison.
O - Very crisp and bright. Nice taste indeed. I liked this one a lot.

Nice golden color with thick head that turns to a sheen with nice lacing throughout. Smells instantly of big green apples then slowly goes away to some spiciness and subtle sweet malt and fermented fruit. Taste is surprisingly tart and citrus peels, but dry and has a lingering touch of malt on the back end. Nice carbonation but overall this beer is just OK.

Bottle - 750mL crowned. Hazy gold with a short, fizzy white head. Aroma is spicy and yeast with fruit notes, flowers and sweet malt. Taste is spice and yeast up front with candied fruit, sweet malt, sponge cake, flowers and soft bitter hops throughout the remnants. Body is medium with a strong, effervescent carbonation. Finishes with more yeast notes, soft bitter hops, ripe tropical fruit, cake notes, sweet malt, soft spice and floral notes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Rare Beer Club: pours cloudy grapefruit golden, decent white head that recedes to a fine ring. Lemon zest, wheat, smells like a Tripel, bread malts, Belgian yeast. More of the same on the palate as there's a rich body as well. Esters and cane sugar sweetness are slightly overdone for me but this is a reasonable Tripelesque blonde.
