I don't know if I'm just partial to different tripel's, but this one just doesn't live up to the hype in my eyes. Poured out of a corked, 750ml bottle.
It's a good looking beer, golden, beautiful long-lasting head, medium lacing.
Smell's very nice, incredibly fruity, with spicy undertones.
I wasn't blown away by the taste. It isn't nearly as complex as I like my tripels (hat's off to final absolution), and i just kept finding myself wanting more out of it than i got. It's fruity, very mildly hopped, and quite light. It hides the abv well, but still shines through every few sips.
It's medium bodied with heavy carbonation that retains throughout the entire bottle. Leaves a nice hoppy aftertaste that makes you want to drink more... (don't you ALWAYS want to drink more?)
I don't think this is a very drinkable beer. Given the price, and given the taste, I just can't hang. I would never pass one up if bought for me, but I won't go out of my way for it.
