It looks dark as night with a thin crowny head that recedes immediately yet looks enticing and appropriately Belgian.
It smells like a good Belgian should - in fact, better and more honest than any North American examples of the style I can think of right now. There's wheat and yeast and some dark fruit & hint-of-coffee notes.
Tastes as advertised on the bottle with fresh fruit, bit of tang, and a warm winey aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is where this truly shines and tricks me into thinking it's an honest-to-balls Belgian import. Carbonation tickles the palate just right, viscosity is spot on, the way it works down is just magic, especially for its 9% abv. This is the point at which a good beer turns great.
In other words, try this if you have the chance. Skip over other Unibroue offerings and tap straight into their gold supply with Trois Pistoles.
