This is a really nice looking beer, a hazy yellow-orange with a fairly fluffy white head. Smell is really nice fruit and Belgian yeast - exactly what a tripel should smell like. Flavor follows the nose - it's slightly sweet with a nice light fruit character up front, but the finish is more earthy and bitter than expected and a get a hint of alcohol as well. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, this is a nice tripel, but the earthy/bitter finish kind of throws off the balance to me. I know it's the original, but I think there are other tripels I like more.
