A: A highly lucent golden color with a frothy, bubbly white head that persists well and lays down some nice lace on the glass. The head isn't as rocky and massive as some of the other tripels I've sampled.
S: Rich, lush, and vibrant. Fruity and spicy in the nose, notes of bright golden apples, pears, white pepper, and clove. An extraordinarily complex and coherent aroma. Quite excellent.
T&M: Flavor is very nice. Bold fruit flavors of dry pear and apple start out, with dry pale maltiness coming in mid-palate. Alcoholic spiciness balances things out nicely late, giving way to a lightly drying finish. Well done. Medium to full body with a spritzy carbonation.
D: Very enjoyable tripel, an excellent brew. This one's quite fruity, whereas the Westmalle is a much spicier trappist tripel.
Serving type: bottle
