12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip glass
Best before date printed on the back label
Appearance: Hazy golden honey color. Pours with a nice white head. Very nice sticky and patchy lacing. Solid carbonation is present as well.
Smell: Yeasty and phenolic on the nose. Strong clove influence is present. Slight citrus notes. Mild banana. Very complex. Slightly herbal presence as well.
Taste: Excellent malty sweetness upon the arrival. Sweet clove taste with a lingering herbal finish. There is a warming affect of the high ABV, however the alcohol is masked very well. Intriguing. Beautiful balance between all of the tasting notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, good carbonation on the tongue. Creamy and smooth.
Drinkability: This beer is quite refreshing. Very easy to drink despite the high alcohol content.
Ending notes: This is a very complex, but enjoyable brew. A perfect archetype of the style. I would highly recommend this to any beer enthusiast. Once you have a sip, you want to go back for more. Phenomenal. Best tripel I have had thus far.
