A - Two fingers of white foam on a hazy, golden yellow body. The head settles quickly and leaves minor lace.
S - A big hit of spicy wheat, followed by lots of phenolic yeast notes. Prominent coriander with some banana, pineapple, cinnamon, and white pepper.
T - Fruity, banana and pineapple, with spicy wheat. Spicy notes of coriander and clove come out in the middle and linger into the finish with grassy hops, moderate bitterness, and a lingering star anise flavor.
M - Creamy, moderately heavy mouthfeel, high carbonation, and a dry finish.
D - This is a classic example of the style, one I have had so many times that it is almost difficult to review it objectively. The spice notes blend perfectly with juicy, tropical fruit notes and make for a very refreshing beer despite the high abv. The only real weak point is the appearance and the anemic head. Not quite as complex as La Chouffe but very good; probably the best Tripel made outside of Belgium.
