Heaven in a bottle.

Golden color with a fuffy white head that slowly fades as you drink leaving a good amount of chunky lacing.

Smell is very pleasant. Spicy with a slight fruityness and a hint of grain and sweet malts. Corriander and possibly clove make a good showing.

Taste is superb. No trace of alcohol, starting slightly fruity with a slight sweetness. Fades off into a good spicy hop finish that doesn't dry out the mouth. No off flavors at all, just strictly solid flavors.

Best beer I've ever had. At 8% ABV it might not be a sessionable beer, but that won't stop me from having a few, now to find it in a closer location than Oregon.

I had the Tripel Karmeliet on tap at the Cheeky Monk in Denver when I flew out for GABF '09. I've had the it bottled before and enjoyed it, but on tap it just blew me away. This is my new favorite beer and I don't usually like Belgians.

I'm no pro at describing beers and why I like them. But here's my attempt:

The head was light and foamy.
The aroma was floral, fruity and slightly spicy.
The taste was so smooth and wonderful. It perfectly melded the malt and citrus taste together. I want to say it had a slight pear taste to it, but I'm horrible at picking out specific flavors. Either way, I greatly enjoyed it.
