4.68/5 rDev +27.2%
Appearance: Amber/coral head with a crisp ivory head.
Aroma: Notes of grapefruit, raspberry, caramel, and 'earthy grape' - is how I would best describe it.
Taste: The aforementioned fruits come through with a spicy and earthy backbone.
Mouthfeel: Smooth with fairly light carbonation.
Overall: Considering that this was my first from Brouwerij West, and that I have had better Tripels, I found this to be quite enjoyable. However, I would have enjoyed a bit more carbonation. All in all, very good.

500ml into a tulip. Pours a hazy mid tone orange, yellow tinged dense head receded fairly quick to a cap which retained nicely, ok lacing.
Aroma is of sweet summer fruits, spicy with a touch of camphor plus a surprising pleasant note of dirty old sock.
The flavor is full and deep, evolves over a significant range. Sweetness stays in check as does the mildly dry twang before the aftertaste which too evolves significantly, into a lingering minor bitter. Medium full bodied smooth mouthfeel.

(Served in a tulip)
A- This beer pours a slightly hazy apricot-yellow body with a thick cream of light beige that sticks to the glass with each sip. There is a slow carbonation of tiny bubbles that trail up the glass.
S- The spicy phenol hint blends with a dried yeast aroma and some hints of earthy hops that take on some lemon pith and dry white wine notes in the finish.
T- The dried yeast character has some club soda ester notes and a dry finish with a softly pungent green hop flavor. The after taste shows the pungent hops growing more bitter and taking on a dandelion greens flavor.
M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a carbonic acid bite in the fizzy finish. There is no alcohol heat noticed.
O- This is a well-built Tripel that is mild in yeast character and depth. I prefer Tripels with a bit more fruity ester and some more depth aswellas just a touch of sweetness to it.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Mild aroma of sweet malt, Belgian yeast with light orange and stone fruit juice. Flavor follows aroma with stone fruit juice, sweet malt and Belgian yeast. The taste is an odd combination of sweetness with a finishing dryness. Finishes with lingering phenolic fruit and tripel spices giving a additional bitterness to the hops. Medium bodied. Perhaps a bit astringent in the finish. Overall a lightly flavored, but enjoyable take on a tripel.
