Champagne corked 750ml bottle into chilled standard pint. I must say, I am excited to try this beer.
A: hazy golden color with copious bubbles rising to the top to keep the pillowy soft foam head that refuses to fall. 1/3 of an inch of offwhite froth that just sits and looks back at me without end. Beautiful!
S: spicy hops, sweet juicy fruit esters, the slight astringent funk-twang of Belgian yeast. hints of apple peel and clove. Reminds me of Duvel, excellent.
T: big time clove taste, sweet juicy apple with a bit of peel tannin, pale malt body, some of the medicinal taste from the spices and the Belgian yeast. Opens a little sweet but the bulk or the flavor is perfectly balanced. Finishes off with a lingering noble hop flavor that is perfectly light and gives this beer a great finish.
M: right down the middle medium body. Not too thin so it feels insubstantial but not so heavy that it is taxing to drink.
O: worth the 3 months it took to get my hands on a bottle. Phenomenal tripple, I could sip this all freaking day. Words fail. By the way, that never-ending head is still there after like 10 minutes. I know a tripple and a strong are different but I would say that this is on par with Duvel but a little sweeter for when I am in a semi-dry mood rather than a dry mood.
