Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass at the tasting. Much thanks to K for the goods!

Extremely pale yellow, nearly straw body, no lacing and some cloudy character. Not to much head and some very faint white collar produced.

Very boozy but impressive nose. Apple skin, luckily not getting into it seems acetaldehyde territory though, but with a big pie crust brown bread like match. Even some cinnamon sneaks out. It really does come off like baked apple pie, and fresh! But the boozy quality feels cheap and this comes off a bit un beer like.

Palate doesn't deliver though. Hot and boozy, almost like a mule wine and very cidery tasting. Classic apple but comes off like cheap flavored vodka and hot. Extremely weak body and very watery, like weak proofed whiskey, and very fleeting. Almost mouth burning finish.

So this is a tripel? one of my fav styles, who could tell? I can't even tell there is any Belgian sweetness, yeast, malt. It's overpowering and way too strong coming off like a cheap spirit. It's aroma is impressive but the beer character just disappeared under this thing.
