Presentation: 12 oz brown bottle with a best before date on the side of the label. Info about the brewery and beer are on the label as well. One ounce of beer was left in the bottle with the dregs as to not cloud the brew.
Appearance: Right away two fingers of froth appear in the chalice, clinging lace is witnessed and in very good shape. Bubbly golden, looks like a tame brut.
Smell: Peaches and roses very aromatic, phenols and a melon like fruitiness round out the aroma as well.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Super crisp with a yeast palate right from the get go, not overwhelming but it is there. Light maltiness of doughy biscuits and harsh husk. Some busy phenols throw down a mix of herbal and medicinal magic with a touch of hop bitterness to boot. Vaguely fruity; starch plantains and faint peach. A breath of alcohol in the finish. The bitterness lingers for a good while into the after taste.
Notes: Very refreshing with the 8.5% abv being slightly hidden, quite the palate cleanser. Cabot has this Parmesan Cheddar blend, a perfect match with some mini rye bread. If you are into Trippels this is a must try, IMO this is a good stepping stone to jump into the vast world of Belgian Beer.

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.
