A hazy oreange golden colored brew topped in a thick coating of white foam that seems to sit on top forever before dying slowly and leaving the glass coated in lace. The aroma is a delite to the nose with nice hoppy notes as well as a sweet backround. I picked up a crisp aroma of champagne in there as well.
Tingly carbonation and a very delicate sweet taste start you out. The hops come in and balance very well. The body is a heavy medium; I would not say full. It has a great complexity. It is pretty hoppy at times, and at others, it is dominated by sweetness. Some fruit flavors come in to play as well as tiny hints of alcohol spice. This is a wonderful brew, and once you have a sip, you are ready to order your next bottle.

Sampled on tap at the Blind Tiger.
This tripel poured a hazy, golden color with very good white foam that left some lace on the glass. The smell was malty and fruity: musty grapes, grape skins, apples, and pears. The taste was vinous and slightly musty (grape) and fruity but with a good balance of malt, and with a hint of alcohol and spice. The hops were there but subdued. The taste was less sweet than some tripels. The mouthfeel was smooth, creamy, and warming. The body was medium-full with modest carbonation feel. This was a very, very good tripel, and I enjoyed it very much. Very easy to drink (perhaps dangerously so).

4.4/5 rDev +14.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Golden-yellow color, crystal clear, big, vigorous head that is very retentive and leaves a nice lace. Smell: Hops, an bit of maltiness and an unusual tart note. Flavor: Malty, but nicely dry as well, very good balance. Also a subtle, unmistakeable spiciness. At first, the unusual tartness I noted in the aroma does not appear to be in the flavor, but as the beer warms up it becomes apparent. Mouthfeel is creamy, rich and smooth. Drinkability is very high, helped by the dry balance. Unlike many American tripels, this one is very well balanced and not overly-sweet. An excellent beer.
