My rating: 4
My beeradvocate.com rating: 3.88
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.9

Intro: This 330ml bottle was dated best before August 2016. There was also a bottled date code 09:45 K04B14 which from what I’ve read on the multiple forums means at the very least, bottled on February 2014.
Appearance: The beer was poured into a Chimay goblet a hazy golden colour with a one finger white head which had good retention.
Aroma: Smells of sweet honey with bready malts followed by fruity pear and a bit of alcohol.
Taste: Alcohol taste at the beginning and aftertaste, but in between, there is honey, pear and some slight bitter lemon citrus.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, medium carbonation and a little creamy.
Overall: It was a pretty good tripel. I liked that it was not too sweet, although the alcohol taste is quite prominent.
