got this in the mail a few weeks ago as a birthday present to myself, and i've been waiting so patiently for tonight. i'm still quite new to the world of belgian beer, but i know enough to be really excited about trying one of the top tripels for the first time.

poured into a chalice, an amazing cloudy dark gold with a head that is huge and thick. this foam dies down after a few minutes but never goes away, adding to the appeal of this fine brew. smells delightful. thoughts of lots of fruit and spicy gum. definitely malty, but i do not smell 9.5% abv.

nor do i taste it. there is an alcohol presence that is very obvious, but it works with the flavor - enhancing it rather than dominating it. i look at the abv as a warning. sip this 750ml bottle slowly man, i can almost hear this beer advising me. wow. i am not disappointed, this one kicks ass.

Favorite beer in the world. Delightful, young or old. Rich, golden, hazy appearance. Light, lacy head. Full of flavor, rich and full, then finishing crisp with nice bitter profile, not overwhelming alcohol. Would buy over and over again. Drank a few that had aged 12mo+, and a more complex, robust flavor was experienced.
