3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very hazy, gold color with a large, white head and lots of yeasty floaters. Aroma of yeasts, spices, and some hops; it is a bit floral and fruity too. Taste is sweet, yeasty, spicy, pleasant, and simply put good. A medium to full body, a creamy texture, and a lively carbonation. Finish is long and sweet. Overall the beer is good: pleasant, unimposing, and quite drinkable.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
2015 BJCP Category: 26C Belgian Tripel
AROMA: Lemon and orange peel, coriander, black pepper, slight tart character? 10/12
APPEARANCE: Amber hue; body is hazy with sediment floating in suspension. Huge, brilliant froth never dissipates with tremendous lacing. 3/3
FLAVOR: Sweet citrus flavor up front with spicy esters on the back. Soft, rounded grainy-sweet malt (no honey). Yeast esters create for Orange flavor without acidity Difficult to distinguish hop bitterness from natural spicy phenols. Alcohol is present, but complementary with faint vanilla character. Delicious palette. 18/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium+ body, though gentle. Soft, rounded mouthfeel that feels a bit thick but is still carbonated enough to make it crisp (CO2 fades). Alcohol is tame and smooth; no warming sensation. Mostly dry aftertaste with minor lingering spice. 5/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Definitely one of the best examples of the style I can recall. I was worried this was an old bottle! 9/10
TOTAL SCORE: 45/50

750 ml bottle. Unclear orange body with a huge, lacing white head. Aroma has pale malt, spices, some fruit and “sugary alcohol” (probably not a good term, esters might be better). Flavor is quite sweet pale malt, white sugar, mild fruit, yeast and alcohol. Low bitterness. Medium body and moderate, sweet aftertaste with some hot alcohol. Feels quite plain and sticky.
