330ml bottle, poured into a delirium tremens tulip

Pours with a dark yellowy orange body, very hazy, thick fat white head, slight yellow tinge

Smell, apricot and peach, very ripe fruit, perfumy flowers. Little bit of lavender

Taste, thick alcoholic fresh very ripe fruit, estery sweetness, some almonds and marzipan. Lasting caramel sweetness on the finish

A big bold flavourful strong ale, very good

11.2 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. First DD beer I've had that hasn't spewed foam all over the place. Not really the most attractive shade of brownish-orange, but the head on it is great. Classic tripel nose of apples and pears, with orange oil, pepper, clove, and grass. Very pleasant-smelling. Flavor is also very smooth and full, with zero alcohol presence to hinder the enjoyment. Estery up front with pears and candied orange, then a nice caramel/toffee character that takes over until the finish, which is grassy with a modest but welcome bitterness. The body is sublime on this one, perfection. The only complaint here is that it is over-carbonated. A few swirls around the glass immediately reconstitute a nice head while simultaneously getting rid of the excess bubbles. In terms of flavor and aroma this is basically the quintessential tripel. Great beer.

33cl into a tulip. Pours a dull hazy honey, towering dense head, clumpy froth.

Sweet complex delicious aroma, everything you want in a tripel. Superb

Taste not nearly as sweet as the nose hinted. Dry crisp bitter finish proceeds the gracefully exiting aftertaste. Sweet, a phenolic kick, the finish. Truly, the finish defines this brew. Medium bodied mouthfeel.
cheers

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium orange amber with fine particulates floating in it. Massive fine to coarse head takes up half the glass with a careful pour. Good retention and leaves massive lacing. Aroma of sweet light fruit, citrus, cloves, Belgian yeast. Flavor is intense light fruit; stone fruit, apple, oranges. Finishes much dryer with the hops and cloves asserting a sharper flavor and a bit of a floral element. Quite a delicious start and pleasant flavor progression. Medium bodied. A quite enjoyable and well made tripel. I enjoyed this more and more as it opened up in the glass over time.
