Poured on tap at Churchkey into a tulip glass.

Nice mellow red amber body, hints at chestnut brown. A bit of see through clarity but very dark. Light and tan foamy top head in appearance, some mild lacing while drinking.

Real nice bouquet on this brew. Spice muted notes of cinnamon. Lots of dried brown fruits mostly fig. Even a faint hint of toast with barely a hint of sweetness.

Chewy palate, with hints of banana and a light sweet sense of candi sugar in the mid palate. Finish has classic rye malt dryness with a tannic nutty aftertaste. A warming quad like sense of grape as the beer warms up.

Super drinkable,unique, very memorable for the style.

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is slightly hazy reddish amber in color. It poured with a half finger high dense tan head that gradually died down and left a patch of bubbles on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong sweet aromas of candi sugar, fruits (apples seem to stand out in particular) and pale malts in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell. As the beer warms up, hints of spices from the rye become noticeable towards the finish and the overall taste gains complexity.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly thick on the palate with a low amount of carbonation.
O: The beer definitely tastes strong and has hints of alcohol, but the complexity of the flavors makes this a pleasant beer to sip.

Poured from tap at the brewery. What I like about this brew right off the bat is its color...tripels can be very light in color, but this is deep amber red (must be the rye??)...it just seems a bit more appealing. Smells of sweet belgian yeast and malts, but you really do smell the bitter rye. Great fruity malts and belgian yeast flavors and a great stingy rye feel. A really unique and flavorful tripel...go have one!!!

Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. Cloudy dark mahogany pour with a two finger off-white head with good retention and lacing. The nose is malt forward with hints of caramel, dark fruit, apple, rye bread, booze, toffee, tobacco, and subtle bubblegum. The taste mirrors the nose with hints of brown bread, caramel, green apples, toffee, rye, booze, and dark fruits. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with minimal carbonation and good balance. Overall, a nice Triple, but nothing all that special...
