(A) Pours a hazy yellow with a slight golden tint to it. Very ample white head.
(S) It actually smells dry with light citrus, white grape, and citric rind.
(T) Citric rind and light malt grab you at first. There is some sweetness to it, but it's not overbearing like American tripels are. Some lemongrass dances around in the taste and helps to round out this really good brew.
(M) Light body, dry, and slightly grainy.
(O) I was impressed. I knew this had pretty decent ratings, but tripels made here in America are WAY too sweet and rest heavily on the Belgian candi sugars. They get too saturated for me. This was something though. Really well done and balanced.
