Man, just not my thing. I heard great things about the beer, but I just don't like the taste. I've got friends that love it and drink it all the time. Not me.

I will confess that I like -- but do not love -- Tripels, but enjoyed this offering from Canada. Very yeasty, and quite smooth for a high-octane brew.

A fantastic Belgian pale. The active effervescence adds to a great feel. At 9% I'm wondering if there's booze in there. Hidden beautifully. Yeasty banana bread and clove.

On point in every way, full disclosure I haven't been to Belgium but this is as solid an expression of the style I've experienced. Those Canucks have nailed it.

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

a: Foamy eggshell colored head. Slightly hazy golden pale body. Nothing obvious in looks but it has a shimmer that suggests promise.

s: Smells like a French Christmas cookie. Sweet citrus, like a Cara Cara, cloves, slight toasted flour and finishing with a hint of a Honey Ricola but fresh, like when your saliva firsts hits it and all those sapient molecules open up into a bouquet.

t: Again...like a pain d'epice cookie...dry graininess like rye, peppery spiciness like clove and nutmeg, slight alcohol feels like mild fresh ginger...sweet citrus. Moves into a slight bitterness from the hops...dry finish but not lingering. No real aftertaste. Leaves you ready for the next sip.

mf: Smooth and sexy. The right amount of carbonation and a little bit of sappy stickiness.

o: This tastes like a hot toddy cooked down and chilled. A beautiful beer for the winter or Christmas holiday but not so obvious it can't be had all year.
