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.
