From 750ml bottle circa 2013. Pours a hazy darker orange, two fingers of soapy white head, settles to a thin but dense cap, with big blobs of lace halfway down the glass. Smell: notes of plum and pear, bready, mildly peppery, with a note of clove. Taste: juicy pear, some apricot jam, snappy grain, pepper, lightly grassy, clove note. Bubblegummy in there towards the end. Carbonation is a little over aggressive. Pretty nice.

Pours a nice copper color with a huge white head. The head does stick around, leaving a lot of lacing. Seems to be a lot of bubbles coming up from the bottom of my Duvel glass.

Smell is fruity, citrus, malt, and a bit of Belgian yeast funk.

Nice and fruity up front, more on the citrus side to me. slight bread notes from the malt, and a touch of lingering hop bitterness at the finish.

Feel is very nice, tingles a bit going down, exactly what I expect from the style.

No doubt this is an authentic triple. Has all the flavors I associate with this style, and a nice complexity. If you are a fan of triples, this one is a must try.
