3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark straw gold with a huge fizzy and slightly frothy off-white head. Strong tropical fruit aroma, with a light note of floral hops and alcohol. Flavor has light notes of tropical fruit, a bit of doughy yeast, nice floral bitterness, and a definate hint of the alcohol (very pronounced slightly above cellar temp.). Palate is very effervescent and lightly bitter, very average tripel mouthfeel. Good, but overall on the average side. Not much complexity, but still fairly balanced with the exception of the alcohol being a little too present.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark golden color with a rediculously thick white head that lasted the whole drinking. Lacing was sick. Smell is very fruity, and floural. Taste is very fruitie, in a good way. It really blends well with the alcohol taste this brew has. As it warms the alcohol comes a little more up to the forefront. Very solid brew.
