330ml bottle, Poured into a wide Westmalle challice from the 70's
Pours with a creamy yellowy body, some amber hints towards the edge of the glass. Thick and very dense yellow tinted head with great retention. Tonnes of patches of lacing all up and down the glass
Smell, almonds and fresh fruit. Some fresh estery tinged yeast, little bit of slightly roasted hazelnuts. Fresh bread and a crisp biscuity malt comes through, some fresh herbs especially corriander.
Taste, almost smokey and slightly creamy alcohol, spicy and slick nuttiness comes through with a touch of peppery hop character. Slightly musty woody yeast character, this beer reminds me of the old wood, fresh beer aromas of Cafe Gollem in Amsterdam. Sweet fresh fruit, some slight banana and peach. Clinging sweetness on the palette although not overpowering, some vanilla pod and rich clotted cream.
A superb tripel. Amazingly balanced with no flavours becoming too overpowering

Poured from bottle dated 25.08.16, 11.2 oz into tulip. Deep gold as noted by most reviewers. I did get the spicy, mildly estery nose (some noted no or limited esters). Head white, fairly quick dispersal. Taste was, for me, true-to-form tripel with citrus-spice up front and yeasty in finish with very mild aclohol. Mouthfeel was pretty full-bodied with a more aggressive carbonation than it looked like it would give. Citrus lingers on tongue for awhile. Keeper, will buy more.
