Nice yellow pour with a small head, but everything from there on out is overwhelmed with coriander. Smells like coriander, tastes like coriander and clove with some sweet fruity yeast.

I'm impressed with how light it is and how well it hides the alcohol, and am enjoying drinking it... but I find it really unbalanced. Alas.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - golden (almost lager like) 1/2 head, moderate lacing

S - Malty, some banana, spicy (I don't have a great sense of smell so I am not really sure what to say here. Besides, I usually just drink my beer I don't sit around and do much sniffing) :)

T - This is more like a golden ale than a "trippel". This tastes like La Fin Du Monde light. It's good ale no question but it's not as full bodied as most trippels. The finish is more dry than the initial taste.

M - Medium body, crisp carbonation but not overboard.

O - I'd buy this again - it's a great tasting beer. I love belgium ale so this was a good purchase.
