Poured from tap into a tulip at Holstein's in the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
Pours a still, hazy, pale orange, almost peachy. Not much in the way of head or lacing, just some white bubbles on the edge of the glass.
Aroma is primarily fruity.
Taste is primarily of exotic fruits, malty sweetness, some bitterness in the aftertaste. A touch of spice.
Soft and medium-bodied. Carbonation is there, but not significant.
Tasty and drinkable brew. I think this particular bar may have an old tap as I remember this being more carbonated back at Wurstkuche in LA. The lower carbonation did not seem to detract much from a solid brew.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle: a light brown 330mL brown bottle with a very busy yet stylish old-school Belgian label depicting the wheat fields.
Appearance: pours a honey amber colour with fine carbonation. A big white head bursts up and settles to a creamy white finger, leaving thick lacing as it dropped. Looks awesome!
Aroma: smells of spice, pepper, wheat and orchard fruits. Quite complex and refreshing.
Taste: again the complexity of flavours come through nicely with some heavier brandy and heavy fruits.
Aftertaste: flows through to the finish, lingering for a time. Pretty easy drinking yet nice as a slow sipper.
Mouth feel: a moderate- to- fuller body, with the sharp carbonation avoiding it being too syrupy.
Overall: a good quality Belgian Tripel - nice complexity of wheat, Belgian yeasts, orchard fruits, spice and some heavier ABV notes. Well worth the price.
