Poured this baby into my Watou chalice.
Golden yellow, i get a one inch head which quickly dissapates to a thin foamy layer. Bits of yeast float still-like in the glass as sparse and tiny bubbles make there way up for air. Spotty sheeting...
The aroma is of yeast, coriander, and maybe a hint of peach in there. Perhaps just a bit of earthiness is detected as well.
Taste is biscuity and dry, the fruit in the nose goes mostly undetected (just a bit right up front) as the flavours lean more towards the floral.. A nice hop bitterness too, nice and even from start to finish. Drier than most tripels i've come across... reminding me a bit of Orval.
Rolls nicely over the tongue with a slight acidic burn, and the carbonation is abundant.
This thing is real easy to drink, and i'm putting it down perhaps too quickly. Crisp and clean like a good lager (but unmistakenly an ale), each sip begs for another... and i could easily go three or four deep on this one. Delicious, and perhaps a nice foil for spicy or mediterrainean foods.
I'll be back.
