Tripel of a dark ocher color and a nice and big whitey foam.
Smell and taste are malty, with strong condimented tones - some of them remind me of dried tomatos (woah) and is less yeasty than common belgian beers.
After it warmed a bit, I could feel sweeter tones on the head and a hoppier taste.
Body is really high (impossible to feel the alcohol), I would say this beer deserves a bitter ending.. but it's ok.

A-a hazy golden with white head that sticks to the glass

S-bready malt, yeast, light fruits, and a citrus finish

T-taste is similar to the smell, bready backbone with spices, some pepper spiciness, light fruits, sugar, and yeast.

M-medium body, moderate to high prickly carbonation, dry finish

Overall a great example of a Tripel, very well done

Cloudy light golden honey with 2 inches of mountainous head. Streams of bubbles. Thick lacing with retention.

Sutle malt and yeast aroma. I expected more.

Tastes of sweet discuit malt and grassy hops. Ends with the esters of Belgian yeast. No taste of alcohol.

Full mouthfeel. Smooth. Excellent.

Overall very smooth drinkable tripel. I wish it had more aroma. I am glad that I have a couple more of these.
