Poured ~50 degrees F into a weissen glass. Left about an inch in the bottom of the bottle, swirled it, then tipped in the lees.
A - the first one I poured had a perfect 2-3 finger head, the second one I poured looked like it was going to be OK, but then the head went crazy and towered over the glass by about an inch. It never spilled over though. The head was a light off white color, and very dense and frothy, like a freshly whipped meringue. The one that went crazy took a long time to settle down. The beer itself is a cloudy gold. I can barely discern what seems like a perfect amount of carbonation through the haze.
S - Not as much on the nose as I would like from a tripel, but I'm happy with what's there. A whiff of something fruity, like some vague citrus up front, but then I'm picking up mostly on baking spices. There's also a subtle hint of some barnyard tang and a quite noticeable dusty quality.
T - Drinks a bit like a kabinett riesling with notes of white grape and pear, the baking spice offered by the nose comes through. There's a little bit of bretty tang. The alcohol is well disguised.
M - Well integrated flavors, medium body, perfect amount of carbonation. Quick, dry finish. Quite like the mouthfeel on this one.
One of my favorite tripels. I'm drinking this one in lieu of champagne to celebrate a special occasion right now.
