This may be my favorite trippel. It was a very strong piercing beer with a lot of flavor and sweetness as well. The smell of fruit and hops filled the glass as I poured it and the champagne like bubbles were overwhelmingly graceful! The aromas were fantastic! Then after a quick settle the taste of this was just perfect! It was sweet and warming, and the unfiltered goodness fills your mouth with malty flavors. I highly suggest trying the "holy water" and giving Canada a thumbs up for one GREAT beer!

07/02/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. All the cliches I run through miss the mark here. This is an extremely refreshing beverage that has a clean, refreshing effect on the palate, a substantial mouth feel/body but leaves one wondering what just happened? Magic is all I'm left with.

01/16/13 On tap a Rattle n Hum, NYC. Yes, yes, yes. If it wasn't for the 7.7 ABV I'd be all over this stuff. Seductive in a Rubenesque way. Lots of body. As a huge Fin du Monde fan, she needs to watch her Ps & Qs as I could swing this way with no regret.

Nearly clear golden yellow in the Gordon's thistle glass with an attractive foam. Big aromatics with the touch of phenols. Plenty of carbonation on the tongue.

Hot with alcohol even with the moderate alcohol content for a Tripel. Some spicy flavors and the drying sensation. Fruity but quite dry, in keeping with the advanced age of this stuff. "Best before" date is 08-02-14, so this has been around awhile. Some hints of pear and apple skins.

Quite drinkable, but at this drier end of the Belgian spectrum it gets a little sourish and funky in the aftertaste. From the bottle-capped 750 ml bottle purchased at Grapevine Liquor in Denver. Discounted to six bucks.
