For 10% ABV, the bite is well hidden. This is kind of sweet, though, and not in the way I want from a tripel. I’ll drink this six pack but probably won’t buy again. I’d rather leave this style to the monks.

Clear golden color, small white head. Sweet apple, candy-marmalade aroma. Medium-bodied. Tastes like an apple cider. Alcohol, light fruity yeastyness. Doesn’t taste like 10% at all, strange.

Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head and good lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, banana, sweet malts and spices. Flavors are yeasty, grainy, sweet malts, lemon bitterness with a dry finish
Not one of my favorite styles, this was real good. Sweet but off set by the spices.

Spicy, slightly sweet, and not bad at all. A step up from their dub release. Going to cellar a few of these to compare.
