Small head that settles to NO bubbles and therefore, no head. Dark, dirty gold head which is nearly clear.

Lightly sweet without the typical strong alcohol aroma. Some yeast to the nose.

There's a much more pronounced alcohol bite on the tongue. Good malt in the background with a touch of bitterness in the swallow. Plenty of body with a flat level of bubbles. Interesting but not overly different from the typical Belgian Tripel.

Picked this up at the brewery. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice crystal clear honey hue with a good almost three finger head that slumps down to leave a thick one finger blanket. Not much side lacing though.

S - Pretty straight forward here. Light sweet malts, caramel, belgian spices, not much booze.

T - Again, pretty straight forward. Sweet (but not cloy) malts, belgian spice notes, faint, faint floral hops, alcohol, and a light almost creamy lacto note too on the finish. Finish quickly becomes boozy though.

M - Mouthfeel is on the lighter/thin side, and the finish is a bit too boozy for my liking. It works for a tripel, but I've had better.

O - Overall, not a bad tripel. A touch too boozy and straight forward.

750 ml. corked and caged bottle poured into a globe glass. The Triplication pours a hazed golden orange after a bit of struggle to remove the cork. Pops with good carbonation nonetheless and shows a steady cap of white foam. Maintains good lace throughout.

Nose is slightly sweet and mildly estery. Hint of lemony hops and a peppery yeast presence dominate. Spicy and phenolic, intriguing yet a bit atypical for the style on the surface. Warming brings forward some nice complexities however and nudges things up a bit.

Taste again offers a peppery spice and a decent body, along with a lingering finish with a bit of texture. This tripel lacks the fruity and clean notes common to the style yet offers a hoppier experience and a solid yeast presentation.

Overall a pretty solid expeience. Great Belgian yeast character.

In a tulip the beer was a golden color with a large white head. There was scant lacing.

Sweet fruity aroma, as well as peppery spice. Nice, but a little laid back.

Bananas, pears, peaches in the taste. Peppery. Sweet malt background. Taste also a bit timid.

This beer was sweet, probably too sweet for me.

Somewhat above average.
