750 ml bottle (bottled 5/12) poured into Chimay chalice. My 100th BA review!
A- Cloudy pale golden color. Off white head rests on top like meringue at a half finger. Good rings of lacing.
S- Crisp fruitiness with a little bit of the Belgian strong spice character. Strong sense of a malty, sweet bread background.
T- Dry hop up front. Sweet malt balances out fairly well.
M- Semi full body, sweet up front with a dry finish, but no looming of bitterness. Tingling of carbonation is nice.
O- Wonderful. I like how this is not a complete malt bomb. It gives Chimay a larger range, with some nice hop character. Very tasty, and definitely a go-to if I'm not feeling the sweetness of other Tripels.

Pours a fairly clear golden with a lingering frothy ivory head. Notes of green apple, lots of peach, coriander, and clove dominate. The flavor is more subtle, with sharp green apple,a touch of pear, and citrus becoming bready mid palate and finishing peppery and spicy. Great beer, with a well appointed dry character that keeps it refreshing. Bitterness is a touch more than I'd prefer.
