3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle into chalice, bottle code 38596. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a nice 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of apple, pear, apricot, grape, honey, bread, herbal, floral, candi sugar, earthiness, and lightly spicy yeast esters; some slight cardboard but its not too noticeable. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/malty notes. Taste of apple, pear, apricot, honey, grape, bread, herbal, floral, candi sugar, earthiness, and lightly spicy yeast esters. Lingering notes of light fruits, bread, honey, herbal, grass, candi sugar, earthiness, and light spicy yeast esters on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/malty notes; with zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly slick and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Tripel. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/malty notes; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Yet another exemplary Belgian tripel. Poured with thick towering head into tulip, aroma is honey, vanlla and bread. Mouthfeel is smooth and velvety, taste hits the mark perfectly. Yummy!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured cloudy, milky golden with a colossal cap of yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up a blend of floral notes and white spices over sweet pale malts and pear meat.. lots more artificially-sweetened fruits and Sweet Tarts as it warmed up. The flavor found pale and fruity malts at the core, with Sweet Tart-like fruits and lesser white spices throughout.. tart finish with fruit skins over pale, grainy malts. Medium-bodied and tangy through the palate.. too much carbonation.. overall OK, but no real great components.
