look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Got this one in a trade some time ago from absolutesites (I believe it was him...it was in a time of many trades, and my brain is not what it used to be...not that it was THEN, either). Whomever it was (and I apologize for only shaky, unsure credit), thnaks very much!

Nice billowy white head is more than three fingers in the glass (I used a pint glass, sted of the stemware in which tripels are oft served), but falls at a decent rate. Liquid is a more yellow honey colour, and quite clear. (Apprently, I didn't kick up much of the yeast sediment on initial pour).

Aroma is good, but not fabulous. Airy, yeasty, with a nice pineapple and spice overtone.

Flavour is a bit dryer and woodier than I expect from a tripel- and slightly thinner, too. However, it does have an underlying sweetness and a nice spice kick. Flavours here range form hte ubiquitous pineapple, to oak, to asian pear, to BMC (but just a bit of that.). It's not the best I've had, but it's not bad at all.

The liquid is deceptively thick. You feel it heavy on your tongue, but the rest of your mouth does not get the same feel. The carbonation is more than adequate, but stays high up where it doesn't detract from the liquid.

This one is a very easy drinker. Despite a few things that could be done a little better, this beer was rather pleasing. If I could get it here in Bama, I'm sure it would become one of my regulars, for when I;m in the mood for something not so huge and thick.

Be well

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.
