The pour into my Chimay glass raises a thin soda like head that quickly fizzes away with a great din (for a beer, that is). Lacing is very splotchy and thin. The body is a hazy brown, with golden highlights at the edges of the glass. Quite dark for a tripel. The nose is spicy, herbal, acidic, and has a strong apple cider note. The taste seems to indicate that it might be going bad, with possibly a bit of vinegar creeping in. But, it has a nice caramel thing going on too, and some of the herbal notes from the nose. Pretty weak overall, though. The mouth is a tad thin, and too fizzy. Not absurdly bad, but one of the worst tripels I've had.
