Great Divide "Tripel"
Abbey Tripel (ABV 9.3%)

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a cloudy almost murky medium yellow-orange that had an average sized (1-2 fingers) white creamy head that lasted a little while leaving behind some nice foamy residue creating a decent amount of lacing that lasted throughout.

The aroma was nice and enticing with a mild grain malt, a nice flowery hop and a sweet moldy yeast with obvious notes of banana, honey, orange and a mild peppery spiciness with just a tinge of alcohol.

The first sip tasted ever so lightly sweet with a nice dose of honey and a hint of citrus. Although as the flavor progressed it became quite a bit more appealing with a little bit of sour setting in and a nice strong yeasty flavor. Towards the end I noticed notes of banana, some spiciness and a nice alcohol warming sensation that allowed the flavor to stay with you for a decent amount of time.

Mouthfeel was light to medium in body with the texture starting out rather creamy but shifting to a dry finish with a mild carbonation.

Overall a smooth aromatic blending of malts, yeast and spices giving this beer a tremendous flavor.
