Poured from a fresh 750 bottle into the trusty ol' Chimay chalice.
The body is on the orange side of things. Darker than most tripels. Lovely off white head with lots of bubbles of varying size. The head sticks around forever. Some lacing also decorates the glass.
Big notes of citrus fruits lead with the first jab to the nose followed by a right hook of yeast. The alcohol delivers the finishing uppercut.
Fruits, pepper, and bread tastes dominate. The alcohol is present but pleasant. You feel it more than taste it. A lovely sweetness that is honey like is also there.
Medium body but a little watery. Dry finish with lots of carbonation.
I’ve paired this with some spicy (faux)buffalo wings before and it went very well. Spicy foods seem to mask some of the astringency and alcohol people don’t like about it. The 750 takes a while to get through for this one so I would suggest the stubby bottle for most especially if you are a virgin to this big beer. It might hurt a little.

Poured from a stubby brown bottle into my Chimay goblet. Slightly hazy amber color with a big white bubbly head. Decent retention for a Tripel and some random bands of lacing on the glass.
Aromas is fairly good. Light fruit (apples and pears), some banana and a little black pepper.
Flavor is more of the same, a bit lacking in Belgian yeast but still tasty and light with a little honey prominent in the taste as well as the other ingredients.
Mouthfeel is rich and smooth. No hint of the 10% abv. Goes down very easy, with the honey and sweetness as mart of the mix.
A good, but not great Tripel.
