Review from 8/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a light orange amber. Nice large white head that lasts a long time with nice lacing. Aroma subdued wheat. Flavor is wheat developing into sweet malt and light fruit. Sweet malt and spicy middle and finish with a touch of hops. Very well integrated. An excellent tripel and worth a revisit.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a slightly hazy yellow-gold with two fingers of white head that recedes into a thin layer with no lacing.

S: Belgian spices with tart, light fruit aromas similar to white grapes and pears. There are sweet candy sugar and bready aromas toward the finish.

T: Light spice notes up front followed by tart fruit flavors and some slight candy sugar notes. The finish is champagne-like with dry fruit and bread characters. Very tasty.

M: Light body with high carbonation, this beer is perfectly attenuated, leaving it light, crisp, and dry despite its high abv.

O: One of the best tripels out there, I think. It's very tasty and has the perfect body needed for a great Belgian.
