Pours a deep orange-brown.

Smells enticing bit of an orangey cirtus hint.

Taste is incredible. Very complex, very drinkable, simply amazing.

Mouthfeel is also top notch, perfect carbonation that adds to the experience.

Overall this is one of the best beers I have tried, and definitely a champion amongst tripels. Pick it up. Don't hesitate to try the dubbel and quad versions either (quad especially).

Strong estery banana smell on first opening, but the smell evolved in a more complex, fruity, slightly nutty aroma accompanied by a generous blonde head. The pour was medium-to-honey color with modest cloudiness. The taste was exquisite. Fruity, floral, malty and complex, with banana nuts, and peaches. There is a lot going on with this taste, and all of it good in my opinion. subtle aftertaste with almost no hops to note. full, round, though not creamy mouthfeel. flavors evolved as the serving warmed but never got harsh or unbalanced. Could not taste the alcohol in this 8% ABV. I think this may become my favorite Tripel, more complex, more malty than St. Bernardus which I like very much.

to me, the perfectest beer in production today.

appearance is beautiful.. from the 750ml it pours a picturesque amber with steady carbonation and a substantial head which leaves an intricate, thick lacing on the glass which is almost as fun to watch as the beer is to drink.

aroma is buttery yeast and has trappist written all over it, no matter what the official rules say. malts and heavy banana dominate the scent.

taste.. what can i say? crisp and refreshing at the perfect temperature. subtle fruit flavor with malt and bready yeast adding to the experience. spices noted include vanilla and nutmeg... absolutely no bitter aftertaste and totally smooth through the finish.

i'm saving the all 5 review for something that doesn't exist yet (it was almost benevolence from cbc).. but this is darn close.

the beer that introduced me to tripels and continues to be a beer closet staple
