A: Pours a golden yellow, with a great white head and good retention.
S:A mild fruity and honey sweet smell.
T: Fruity and alcoholic taste, not too bitterness, but a little spicy because the alcohol, i felty some wheat too.
M: Refreshing and spicy because its high carbonation with a warmth end because the alcohol.
O: A great beer, but cannot stand when compared with trappists Tripel, its medium body and fruity flavor resemble the trappists, but it lacks its cousins bitterness and complexity.

Quite a nice sweet and beautifully flowing triple.
Presentation: 75 cl green corked and caged bottle. Retro font framing the illustration of a grain harvest. Back narrative offers a small description, awards and history. Shows 8.4% Alc. by Vol. Served in a tulip glass.
A - Hazy gold pour, towering frothy head, good retention, rich surface memory with rich lacing. Atta looker...
S - Sweet and lightly spicy nose… honey, citrus and pepper…
T - Rich fruity sense, citric, lightly tropical… sugar and spice… peppery really and softly woven in a nice way with the hops and a faint herbal touch.
M - Medium body, high prickly carbonation, nice punctuation of the spices with a soft alcoholic touch and a nice lingering sense.
O - Tremendous flow… And if one is into it, it sure is quite remarkable. Deceptively drinkable.
Notes: Why did it take me so long to try this brew? Recommended over and over again. Being typically not too keen on a good part of triples I overlooked it until now. Well, glad to fix that mistake. Fruity and dry, this flows great and is a nice crowd pleaser. I'm sure revisiting and sharing...

Smell: tangerines and herbs: the green kind
Taste: a champagne-like body with herbs, sweet citrus (probably tangerines), limes, hops, honey notes, and hints of malt
This was the first REAL beer I've ever had, so I may be slightly sentimental over the whole thing. With that being said, this beer is fantastic! What I love most about it is how different the flavors are from each bottle; age indeed does make this beer universally great, however.
Pair this beer honey smoked salmon over a rice pilaf, or get a smoked spicy sausage with sauerkraut, caramelized onions, and smoked peppers for some contrast

750 ml bottle was poured into a wine glass.
Appearance: This beet poured a huge puffy white head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow with some haziness, but plenty of tiny little bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Vanilla, apples, pears, a little booze, Belgian candy, bready malts. Smells good.
Taste: apples, pears, vanilla, mild hop bitterness, bready malts, Belgian candy
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to high carbonation, highs little dry, medium carbonation, and a nice sipper.
Overall: A standard tripel that everybody should enjoy at one point in a person's life. Enjoyed in the past and will be enjoying more in the future too.
