Another exotic one from Belgium. Smell like barrels, intense, resembling quality red wine. Lots of a snow white foam, but beer color is nice also, dark orange. Earth tones at first, than citrus and melons. Sweeter than expected, but doesn't overload taste buds. Nice finish with malts and hops.

Going not by style, but by the ale, this is really nice and flavorful. If it were by style it is off the mark into a Belgian strong ipa and NOT a triple. That said....the beer pours a bright orange with thick frothy white head and EXCELLENT lacing and later pooling thin layers of foam. A "live" ale which I am fond of since it lives and matures much longer. Nose is sweet malts mingling with spicy hops, lemon grass, and Belgian bready yeast. Taste is up front sweet candy malts and sweet fresh bread yeast---ahhh the Belgians and their fantastic malts and yeast strains! The sweetness subsides into a citrus note, turning into a bittering hops note that lingers on and on. Very nice mouthfeel, nicely carbonated and smooth drinking. Excellent by ale standards, but not really a true Belgian triple. Great for hops heads, a bit over the top for Belgian lovers of which I AM.
