11.2 oz. bottle into Westmalle goblet.

Orangish/golden hue, a bit of cold haze. Two fingers rocky white head, slow dissipation. Fruity nose, a bit of pineapple with big passion fruit prominent. Pretty active mouthfeel, but not overwhelming carbonation. Big fruity esters dominate the taste, passionfruit (very Allagash-like, or vice versa :)) again, but a nice dry lingering finish.If it wasn't for the price and ABV, I could probably enjoy a couple of these. One of the world's great beers, to be enjoyed for special occasions, like my birthday today! A true world classic, the best tripel I've enjoyed.

EDIT: Staying in Brussels for two months while on sabbatical. The local grocery store has bottles for US $1.74. Happy :)
