Came caged and cork in a brown 750ml bottle. Pured a deep copper with a cranberry hue and a creamy 2 finger head, dissipating slowly, leaving considerable lacing. A caldera of bubbles rose through the center for almost the entire first pour, into a Delirium Tremens tulip.
The bouquet offers yeast and a strong, yet clean, herbal aroma, slightly grassy and resembling wet leaves in autumn.
The taste consists of subtel malts and yeast, with strong fruit overtones--dominated by apple and pear, and a note caramel. The hops remain suggestively in the back, no trace of bitterness. Fruit dominates, and the flavor is almost all but devoid of spice.
The mouth is light--considerably lightweight comapred to many other Tripels-- and lively: acidic on the front palate, with the heavy but enjoyable fruit finish.
The drinability is high. Multiple bottles could easily be consumed in a sitting. A very enjoyble ale overall from the Dutch.
