I have had this beer several times. While I am impressed by the beer, I am not as overwhelmed as others. Poured from the bottle, the beer radiates a pleasant sour but fruity aroma. The scent gives a positive hint of what is to come. Giving a moderate head, the color is a cloudly golden color. The initial taste is a nice fruity sour flavor. It almost seems like a orange flavored Belgian. For some reason, I feel like the taste should be somewhat more complex. Being a Tripel, it is somewhat thick. Some might even describe it as being slightly chewy. There is some degree of spiciness in the aftertaste that is accompanied by a slight warming sensation as the beer goes down. While the aftertaste is mild, it does leave a pleasant reminder.

Haven't had this in years and was surprised by how much I loved it. Its a light orangey, yellow straw color with an incredibly soft white head and a little lacing. The smell is all stone fruits at first, Belgian yeast spiciness (white pepper, clove), banana, a little honey, vanilla and citrus peel. The taste follows the smell starting with strong peach and stone fruit notes, some candied pineapple, sweet honey, banana, and the spice profile grew as the beer warmed. A little bit of classic bubblegum flavor started to come out a bit too alongside of the clove. No traces of the booze. The clove was unique in that you would taste it and then feel all over the mouth like the way in which you feel clove. Really smooth with high level of carbonation. Could of drank this all night. Again, I had sort of considered this a gateway beer and hadn't thought of it much in a while but I was so pleasantly surprised with this one - really wonderful still.

Poured into a tulip out of a 750ml bottle.
Pours a hazy medium orange with a huge four finger billowy head. It takes quite a while for the head to settle down in order to fill up the glass. Really impressive head retention and lacing.
Aroma is very fruity and spicy with orange peel and some coriander. Maybe even a touch of clove and pineapple thrown in there. Very nice.
The flavor continues the characteristics found in the aroma but there is an addition of a quick shot of caramel up front. A big rush of orange peel follows with some clove and banana. There is a moderate dryness towards the finish and the finish is fairly clean. Alcohol is completely hidden.
Overall, this is a very nice Tripel. Probably not the best I have ever had but it is up there. I would say this is the best non-Belgian example of the style I have come across.

Pours a straw color with voluminous eggshell-colored head comprised of small bubbles; moderate retention with minimal lacing. The aroma is of lemon and orange citrus, white pepper, faint straw/hay, and grass. Quite the emphasis on the citrus. The taste begins with similar citrus, but almost immediately gives way to a rush of funk and clove. There is some white pepper, straw, grass, and another appearance of lemon zest on the finish. Great belgian yeast flavor throughout. Mouthfeel is crisp, light, and refreshing, but does have a bit of a sticky, resinous finish. Overall, this is a very well done and traditional tripel that is very drinkable. The alcohol is completely hidden behind a nice, complementary bouquet of refreshing flavors.
