Served in a tulip glass at between fridge and cellar temperature.
A - Blush champagne with silvery-copper highlights. Pastel sunrise. An interesting color I have not seen in any other beer. Clear, and without much overt carbonation action. Lacing is wispy and fleeting.
S - Immediate rush of framboise-style lambic, giving the impression of a much sweeter beer. Passion fruit is also detectable, but in lesser amounts. Some of the other musty, fruity esters commonly associated with a triple are also here, but it's mainly about the raspberries.
T - My immediate reaction was not one of pleasure. The dry Belgian funkiness coupled with the bright fruitiness caused a pretty big rift in the flavor palette -- I was caught off guard. However, with subsequent sips I was able to better understand what this beer is about. In the front is the essence of the fruit, but the sugars were fermented out so as not to create a syrupy sweet mess. The middle gives a nice tartness that works with the yeasts, leading to a refreshingly dry swallow. More complex than the nose would belie.
M - A bit thin until the effervescence kicks up a froth. No real body to speak of other than that, but it lends itself well to this style.
O - An interesting beer to say the least. Not what I was expecting -- actually, it's better. The dryness helps allow the Belgian intricacies to shine through, making any adventurous beer lover happy. However, don't attempt to serve this to someone thinking they're going to get a sweetened fruit lambic!

Red-amber color; slightly hazy with a fine head.
A tad too sweet despite some tartness.
Nice mix of fruity flavors with no one fruit dominating: A berry-cherry mix.
Medium-light body with fairly high carbonation.
Some hops show up in the aftertaste.
