Poured into a Triple Petrus tulip. Beautiful looking beer. Tons of sloppy head that sticks around forever, lots of lacing and a permanent white cap on top of the cloudy golden yellow beer.
Smells like candied pineapple, just a little funky grass/straw. Light malt and a little wheat. Not overly complex, but definitely solid and pungent.
Bone dry pull on the tongue despite a little sweetness from that candied pineapple thing going on. The fruitiness has just an edge of tartness that also factors in and balances things. There's just a tiny bit of medicinal/metallic flavor going on. I guess you could say it's part of the funk/tartness. Incredible how well the booze is hidden, just a little peppery alcohol spice to hint at that 8.5 ABV.
Silky smooth texture. It's like drinking custard. Low carbonation though.
Not much else to say about this one. World class. It's a classic, and maybe my favorite trappist.
