Decided it was time to get off my ass and finally try the Westmalle Tripel.
Here it goes:

A: Pours a really light golden yellow. Very clear with tons of effervesence. A beautiful thick and creamy 2 finger head tops it of.

S: Tons of Apple skin. Sweet white grapes. Peppery citrus. Ripened bartlett pear or asian pear. Light caramel and floral.

T: Huge belgian yeast notes. Lot's of apple skin and juicy white grapes. Some sticky dark fruit notes believe it or not.

M: Tons of effervesence. ALmost champagne like. Really dry on the finish.

Overall: There's a reason why this is world class beer and considered to be the best Tripel made. Try it and you'll know why.
