4.31/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a small bottle into a Leffe chalice. Nearly perfect level of carbonation as an easy pour produces two fingers of dense head that lasts and lasts. The beer is dark gold in color and has reasonably good clarity. The nose has lots of fruity esters and spicy phenols, giving notes of banana, clove, lemon, allspice, and puff pastry.

Medium-full body with spicy-sweet flavor and wonderfully balanced profile. Nice bready malt up front blasts you with a hearty sweetness, then citrus and hops meld seamlessly into the sweetness and provide accenting fruity sweetness and balancing spice. Not bitter at all, although it seems dry and the high carbonation does open the palate and intensify the flavors. No booziness at all, but it certainly warms you up.

Tripels are not my favorite style at all (I prefer Dubbels and Quads), but occasionally I do like to try styles I don't ordinarily seek out. I'm very glad I tried this one. I should probably do a side-by-side with Westmalle and La Fin du Monde, two other Tripels I think very highly of.
