It's okay. Taste like what you would expect a "normal" beer to taste like (like it is the most quintessential beer that one could expect). Aftertaste is a bit strong. Ordinary, nothing special.

Opaque golden body with white head and yeasty sediment. Belgian candy sugar, clove, honey, light malt and herbal notes. Remarkable.

Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a St. Bernardus goblet glass. Best by date of 29/09/15.

Appearance: Pours a very hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of off white head that fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.

Smell: A yeasty, fruity, and spicy Belgian aroma with good hints of citrus and spice. Belgian yeast with hints of clove, pepper, and funk. Lots of fruit esters with hints of banana, apple, pear, and white grape along with citrus hints of orange and lemon zest. Hints of Belgian candied sugar. Pale malt with hints of wheat, straw, grains, and cracker. Also some hints of grassy hops. A very good aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma hints, a fruity, yeasty, and spicy Belgian taste with big notes of zesty fruit and spice. Belgian yeast with some upfront notes of clove, funk, and pepper. Classic Belgian fruit flavors of banana, pear, white grapes, and green apple. Zesty citrus fruit notes of lemon and orange. Sweet notes of candied sugar. Backing pale malt and wheat with notes of straw, grains, biscuit, and cracker. Subtle earthy backing notes of grassy hops. A very good Belgian taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a carbonation level on the heavier side of medium. Juicy, spicy, and drying on the finish. Some alcohol heat is noticeable but things are still fairly smooth.

Overall: A really good Belgian Tripel. Nice mix of zesty fruit esters and spicy yeast.
