Pours out into my goblet an cloudy orange color with plenty of carbonation bubbles swimming to the top. The head is massive!!! I mean this thing looks like it is alive. Pours up to four fingers high (if not higher). Two fingers high just over the glass with out a single drip down the sides of the glass. Off white and fluffy. The retention is almost perfect, leaving rings and lace all around the goblet.
The aroma is dense with an almost white wine aroma. Light, and has some good citrus notes. Orange peel, coriander, bread, and alcohol. I even get a hint of diacetyl. Not as clean as I expected though.
The flavor has a sweet and sour flavor. Orange peel, white grape, and alcoholic sweetness hits the tongue at first. These flavors play a tug a war with the malt and yeast. Giving off a fresh baked bread taste. At the end there is a grassy hop that lingers on the tongue.
The body is medium, kind of slick on the tongue. The finish is not as clean and crisp as I would expect from the style.
Over all this triple is certainly worth a try. I am glad I tried it but this tripel seems a little over done.

Caution, this is my first Tripel. (Thanks Dean.) It was wonderful to try, and the complexity was fun to taste. Break this out for your beer snob friends to impress them.
Appearance - a nice orange shade brew
Smell - Fruity, citrus
Taste & Mouthfeel - very complex fruity ale flavor up front. Enough carbonation. Oddly, the citrus and high ABV reminded me of cough syrup for just an instant, but that quickly passed. There was quite a warmth at the end and a clean finish.
It reminded me of a complex wine with new flavors every second.
