11.2 oz. bottle poured into Chimay goblet
L: yellow-amber-brown ... comes out like a reddish gold or orange, very interesting and layered colors; goblet is scored on the bottom so it keeps a constant head of offwhite/beige foam and the collar is THICK ... some lacing
S: musty fruity sweet ... some orange and lemon, some cherries or strawberries (?) ... fruit for days ... almost more dubbel-like than tripel, but it's fantastic either way; there's some definite bready malt notes waiting underneath the sweet
T: fruity sweet ... so candy-like, again it seems so much like a dubbel; some lemon but not overly sour; has a earthy finish
F: loads of carbonation, and even with the scored CO2 nucleation point pushing up a constant flow of bubbles it still holds onto enough carbonation to keep it crisp; very dangerous because it's almost watery while still holding on to a TON of flavor; hard not to call it perfect, so i will
O: love this brew and the fact that I can find it pretty much everywhere; there are better tripels, but not many that I've tried so far and no by so much that this seems like a disappointment. fantastic beer and fantastic style that here seems to mix Belgian strong pales, dubbels and a pinch of hefeweizen.
