Very delicious beer. Pours a nice golden color with a generous creamy head. Has an aroma of fruit, with nice yeasty notes. The carbonation level tries to balance the beer out but might be just a bit much. Otherwise everything comes together nicely with this beer.

This is a fine trippel. I really am enjoying it.

Pours a hazy amber gold with one finger of thick creamy ... very creamy head that leaves copius lace in the withdrawl as the beer is consumed.

Smell is fruity yeast and some maly with faintly discernable alcohol.

Taste is fruity malt with some hop bitterness developing as the sweetness fades. A little alcohol is there along with apples and plums.

Mouth feel is thick and slightly gassy.

Very drinkable for such a high gravity ale.

Appearance: Gorgeous pale golden color with light orange highlights. A full 3 fingers of egg shell white head that reduces down to awesome open lacing that clings all over my glass.

Smell: Citrus, cloves, alcoholic esters, and a bit of Belgian yeast combine for an awesome smell. I get more citrus in this tripel than in others, and less of a yeasty smell (than in other tripels and Belgians in general) which I consider a plus.

Taste: Some citrus and cloves up front, with esters toward the back end and slight bitterness. Great, balanced beer that can hold its own with any beer of the style.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: A bit under medium bodied, this beer is smooth and creamy with perfect carbonation. The alcohol is hidden extremely well and is very drinkable. Overall, one of the best tripels out there.
