Good introductory product for the style with plenty of zing. Cloudy and the hue of a harvest moon in mid-October, this beer has a creamy white head that leaves sheets of lace and persists til the bottom. The aroma is quite astringent and slightly fruity with the unmistakeable spicyness of Saaz hops. Big tastes of clove and star-anise that culminate in a slightly cloying spicy banana note. A ferocious malty sweetness lingers on the palate nicely. Moderate but silky carbonation. Drinkability is slooow but pleasurable enough....a nice little beer, perfect for fall.

Addendum: As the bottle suggests, this brew is best when cool as opposed to cold. The frutiness is more pronounced in this state and more diverse: pear and apple and other fall fruits come out to play.

Trippel pours a clear golden color with a nice long lasting lacing head. There is a a rich and spicy aroma, hints of coriander, lots of alcohol. The taste is very crisp, good noticeable amount of spices, hints of orange, good malt backbone. Nice flavors, a tad bit weak. Overall its not as rich as other trippels but has a very nice crisp fruity flavor.
