750 ml bottle was poured into a wine glass.
Appearance: This beet poured a huge puffy white head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow with some haziness, but plenty of tiny little bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Vanilla, apples, pears, a little booze, Belgian candy, bready malts. Smells good.
Taste: apples, pears, vanilla, mild hop bitterness, bready malts, Belgian candy
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to high carbonation, highs little dry, medium carbonation, and a nice sipper.
Overall: A standard tripel that everybody should enjoy at one point in a person's life. Enjoyed in the past and will be enjoying more in the future too.

Trying this for the first time. Tasted 9 April 2014.
Pours a gorgeous hazy golden yellow. One finger of dense creamy white head, looking more like milk than foam. Great retention, awesome lacing, and a dense column of bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass.
Smell is bright and alive. Lovely yeasty esters with fruit (banana) and gentle spice, plus some residual sweetness in the back. Yum.
Taste has both the sweet, flavorful side and the clean, crisp side. Outstanding. Warm and fruity, a bit of sugar, a faint hint of spice, and only the tiniest touch of bitterness. Balanced, varied, and delicious. Not even a sniff of alcohol.
Feel is fabulous as well. Smooth and fairly light, with a fuzzy carbonation that spreads throughout. Keeps the flavors buzzing around.
One of the best tripels I've had, for sure. Excellent across the board. Great depth, varied flavors, and a delicate balance. Wow.
