Poured from 375mL corked & caged bottle into a tulip. My 100th tripel!

Appearance: medium golden hue with a tiny touch of haze and a light effervescence. Head poured a rather thin finger of white foam; usually there's a little more head to a tripel, but overall not too bad.

Smell: sweet malt with a bit of alcoholic heat. Not bad, but it lacks some of the fruity character I so love in the style.

Taste: sweet malt with a little orchardy fruitiness. There's also a little bit of a chalky character (which I like) and a little bit of that alcohol from the aroma. Finish is a little syrupy for my taste.

Mouthfeel: big body with a good smoothness and a pretty good carbonation and creaminess. Not at all bad.

Overall: this beer is a little sweet and I feel like it lacks a certain finesse, but it's a decent enough take on the style.
