Served from bottle into Mikkeller taster flute. Poured hazy golden yellow with minimal white head. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, wood, caramel, earth, and subtle earth hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, wood, earth, dark fruit, caramel, fruit hop, and subtle sweet alcohol. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. There was quite a bit going on in this one if I'm honest. Fairly complex and very refreshing throughout the glass. Nice notes going on for the style. Really glad I got the chance to try this one and suggest that you do the same.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Served in a Tripel Karmeliet tulip glass (the big one).

Yeah, I bought this because of the name alone. *sigh* Oh well... Anyway, this stuff pours a lightly hazy golden-straw topped by a short finger of lightly cream-white foam. The nose comprises banana Belgian candi sugar, light clove, and sourdough. The taste brings in more of the same, with the bread really coming through powerfully. Beneath that layer lies one of straight candy sweetness laced with a touch of booze. Then comes a brief bit of Belgian spiciness before the other two layers return with a vengeance. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a pretty sad tripel, one that definitely skimps on the Belgian characteristics that make the style shine. I big disappointment, especially for the nearly $15 I paid for this bottle...

Last beer I had on-tap at Rogue's brewery in Newport OR during a recent visit.

Pours a lovely pure yellow colour, with a firm but translucent haze. Head is white, persistent and huge, although it leaves no lacing whatsoever as it falls. Carbonation is powdery when the glass is tilted. Looks good.

Big Belgian characters on the nose: buttered bread, baked beans, roundness. It's smooth, but sharp and pleasant. Awesomely traditional and very, very good.

Light buttery characters on the front, before moving into some smooth organics. Hint of floral notes (perhaps lavender) before a dry, phenolic finish. It's light but rather biting on the end, but leaves no ringing residuals on the aftertaste. Feel is smooth but light.

Overall, this is a very tasty brew, and a really good tripel. I'll admit, I wasn't expecting all that much: I find it rare to get a non-Belgian tripel that's really worthy of the style, but this is pretty damn good.
