A strong, but flavorful beer. I approve!

Beautiful beer. Clear, shining golden and a massive, long lasting thick white head.

Mild aroma here. Potpourri like fruity spice, stewed apples, and some Smarties like sugariness. Surprisingly muted on the tongue. This isn't as sweet as most tripels. It's oddly dry in fact. Stewed apple flavors with strong potpourri like spice. Faint candi-sugar, grassy hops, and vaguely medicinal heat. Kind of lackluster overall.

Drank this for New Years. Don't remember much about it now, but after La Fin du Monde, I was disappointed.

The fruity yeast and malty character was there in spades, but it didn't paint a good picture, a bit off on the aftertaste.

Medium body, medium carbonation.
