An excellent interpretation of the Tripel style IMO.
Pours nicely, needn't be too vigorous to get a proper head. Said head is snuffable and quaffable, and it's worth doing both.
A: rather light, slight opacity, which raised my expectations. Good carbonation.
S: frankly this is my favorite aspect of LFdM: unusual (for our geography) notes of grass, hay, and other yeasty metabolites that coalesce to make it... oh, forget it - on to taste.
T: good but doesn't quite match olfactory. If anything perhaps too sweet; not sugary but cloying over time.
M: very smooth. Exceptionally drinkable. Good viscosity.
O: this has cracked my regular rotation of tripels (LFdM, Gulden Draak and Rochefort 8 (which I group with Tripels)).
Also worth noting, cost effective: $7.99 for 650mL. Plus you get to have the asthetic experience of uncorking a bier.
And then clarifying to any neophytes, "No, it's not champagne."
Prost, salud, cheers - MCC
