So, I know it's a Tripel and therefore has a higher ABV. Still, this is a sneaky bastard. Pours a rich, dark orange with a fine-bubbled white head. Aroma starts with the yeasty, bready and moves into spice and some caramel sweetness. Flavor is a more intense version therein, but with a slight reversal. The spice notes start, followed by the fruity esters. To me, a brighter dried fruit, more like golden raisins and cranberries or currants. The yeasty flavors are of a fresher hay, and it finishes with a tart (not sour) dryness not unlike a champagne. The problem here is that this lighter-medium bodied Tripel washes across the tongue pretty easily. And the 10 ABV, which is fairly well hidden, can sneak up on you.

Pours a clear medium orange with thick sudsy white head, thick lace strewn about the place. Smell: pear, pepper, mild spiciness, bready with a note of milk caramel. Taste: bready, pear, apricot jam note, peppery, grapeskin and mildly herbal. Seems to be pretty archetypal, well done.

APPEARANCE - Clear orange with a 2-finger, uneven, malty head, that dissipates slowly. Lacing is foamy

TASTE - Well balanced between a sweet Belgian and a bitter Pale Ale. Not cloying liks some sweeter Belgians. ABV well-hidden.


MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Soft, not gooey. Surprisingly decent carbonation.

VALUE - $12 for a bottle -- on the high end.

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Very smooth drink. Chuggable.
