Have not brewed yet. Looking for feedback from experienced Brewers regarding this recipe. Do you think this has good taste potential? I may or may not dry hop the Summer depending on the flavor at Day 14. Likely to let it sit in the fermenter for 21 to 28 days.

Tasted today after 3 weeks in the bottle. Overall good taste and consistent with my experience with Tripel style beers. Sitting on 40+ bottles so not likely to brew this again until next year.
