Poured from a 330ml bottle into a St. Bernardus tulip at low altitude in NY. Thanks to my girlfriend for giving this to me as a gift!

A: Clear golden-yellow with a large, prickly white head of good retention. As the head gradually recedes, it leaves plenty of lacing along the sides of the glass.

S: Pear, apple, cloves. Smells intensely fruity up front with the spice character in the background. Alcohol doesn't come through at all on this one. Overall, the smell is mouthwatering.

T: The apple/pear notes come through strongly right from the beginning -- reminds me of drinking hard cider in certain respects. The fruit flavors give way to clove and pepper notes on the finish. The sweetness is a bit cloying.

M: Medium-bodied with a prickly and dry mouthfeel. Suits the flavors well, but doesn't leave any lasting impression.

O: Quite different from most other tripels I've had in terms of the apple/pear flavors (as opposed to dark fruits). Well-built and tasty, just a bit too sweet.
