From big corked bottle dated 21/03/12. Poured in a medium Duvel glass.
Big pop of cork and slight gush.
Pours a gold yellow with big active head.
Aroma of candy sugar, malts, citrus spritz.
Moderate carbonation and modest mouthfeel.
Flavors of malts, grassy hops, lemon & lime, candy sugar, fresh bread, light spice. Overall one of my favorite Belgian brews...refreshing, full body with nice malt sweetness, some complexity but very drinkable.

Pours a straw body with a lively head that fades to a persistent fizz. Lacing is short-lived but vibrant.
Wonderful aromas of yeast and a surprising amount of spice. Gets fruitier as it warms.
Carbonation starts high for my taste but gets lower and very smooth given time.
Tripel isn't a style I'm generally fond of, but I'll be getting some more of this one.
