look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Hazy amber orange color with a huge thick head with great retention and leaving lots of laces.
Fruity aroma with notes of grapes, peaches, Belgian yeast, mango, candi sugar and banana.
Flavor of young wine, white pepper, coriander, apple juice, pear, herbal hops, core of pineapple, bread, almonds and lemon. Dry and mildly bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with effervescent carbonation. Alcohol of 8% abv is completely well hidden.
Very elegant fruity Tripel with a subtle tartness and superbly well balanced. Complexity comes slowly in small pieces. Huge drinkability for its high abv. Very easy to drink for new lovers and still interesting for experienced.

Had on draught at Crave Kitchen and Bar in El Paso, TX on 28 Jun 2014.

A - Light gold color. Fairly clear. Thick, persistent, creamy white head with lots of lacing.

S - Aroma of lightly bready malt with a grainy twang that seems like Pilsner to me. Spicy noble hops are also prominent. Light cotton candy and spice notes. There was a moderate depth of aroma, but it may have been improved with appropriate glass ware. Unfortunately, mine was served in a standard US pint glass instead.

T - Strong, spicy hops dominate the flavor. Yeast and other ingredients might also contribute to the spice. Some bready malt. Light sugar and cotton candy flavors. Dry finish with lingering spicy hops.

M - Medium body. Creamy, full carbonation. Strong hops bitterness with some alcohol heat. All is in moderation and balance.

O - Overall balanced and drinkable with a surprisingly high level of spicy hops. Very enjoyable. It's no wonder it's considered a world classic of the style.

Poured a golden yellow with vivacious carbonation, surprisingly clear, surprising head persistence and body. Good aroma of hefeweissen-esque banana and lemon in the smoke upon opening, although aroma was somewhat weaker upon pouring. Crude stab at mouthfeel - medium body? Taste - initially dominated by boozy, peppery bitterness; upon acclimation picked up the aforementioned hefeweissen-esque banana notes as well as the soft sweetness of mango. I liked this beer because it is elegant in its simplicity - like well-sourced meat or vegetables that let subtle natural tastes do the talking.
