I'm always cautious to rate beer too high because I don't always trust myself. With the number of different types of beer and personal taste preference it'll take way more practice to truly identify the best of each bunch. Besides, what lies between "outstanding" and "perfect"? Regardless, this beer was incredibly good. I'm realitively new to the Tripel and got LFDM because of the high ratings on BA. That said, the flavours of this beer were very distinct, well balanced and downright tasty. There were so many different taste regions affected on my palate that I had a very tough time identifying the medley of flavours. The malts were not in anyway overpowering as one might think of a Tripel and a 22oz. bomber at 9% disappeared rather quickly. I'd venture to say that this is one beer deserves a place on every beer rack and should be brought our to impress the advocates in your circle.

12 oz bottle, best before 05-10-15. Silver foil cap. Poured into 16oz Odell snifter for review.

A – A hazy dark yellow/orange golden shade. Little bit of sediment floating within. Head is tall and fluffy, almost pure bright white. Head stays afloat thanks to beautiful rapidly rising bubbles.

S – Orange and fruity with spice notes. Banana, clove, and peppery Belgian style spices. Prominent and funky yeast aromas. Fresh bready notes, as well as some fresh cut grass.

T – Similar to the aroma, there is a welcome blast of pepper and banana. Some citrusy orange sneaks in and makes an appearance before the yeast strains come in and dominate nicely. There is a particular balance to this one, more spice and pepper come through towards the finish.

M – Medium/Full bodied. Texture is nice, and leads to a sweet and lingering finish. Very complex yet somehow easy drinking beer. The ABV goes undetected due to the huge influx of flavor.

O – Wonderful Tripel, stays true to the style. Does a good job of bringing lots of complex flavors to the table without letting any one of them overpower another. Great balance, and highly refreshing. I can't think of a better time to sip this one than outside on the patio on a warm day. Wonderful, big bodied, delicious beer.
