Pours golden orange with a small off eggshell white head. Smells like a belgian triple should...candi sugar with bready malts. Tastes like apple pie! Absolutly amazing starts off as a classic belgian triple bananna, clove, belgian sugar and ends with a very nice apple brandy finish...really reminds me of liquid apple pie. Mouth feel has the high carbonation of a triple and a light mouthfeel with a semi dry finish. Overall amazing beer on this first warm night in front of a fire.

I did get this bottle at the brewery. Either this is just a sub-par beer, or the bottle they sold me was past its prime. With no printed bottle date, it's hard to tell.

Poured a slightly hazy golden color, with a small white head that fizzled out pretty quickly; minimal to no lacing. Aroma was woody, toasted grains, pale malts, vaguely floral with a hint of peppery spice. Taste was pretty bland and uninteresting, woody like the aroma, fusel, boozy, floral notes, fruity esters and stale cinnamon sticks, but really nothing "apple" coming out in any significant way. Mouthfeel was pretty dry and on the metallic side, light-medium body, and moderate carbonation. Not a very good drinker, and a taster was more than enough of this one.

Bad bottle or bad beer? I don't know, but I'd like to try it again to be sure.
