On first glance, it pours a honey-like color reminding me a bit of a lager, but there's more depth. Lacing is fine. Aroma is well balanced hints at some of the yeast and hop character.
A very clear taste. The yeast is a little upfront but still light. I'd almost go for a little more depth but I've no real problem either. A faint hint of malt smoothness.
The beer is well carbonated so it feels a little bubbly in the mouth. Keeps it's character though.
Whilst abroad I used to go for the Leffe trippel, and as drinkable as the Leffe was, the alcohol is better masked in this brew. Still at 8.5 abv it'd be wise not to imbibe too quickly.
