A- Poured into a chalice. Pours a bright golden yellow with just a bit if haze, large foamy white head has good retention and eventually reduces, leaving a thin layer skimming the top

S- textbook tripel aromas coming from the glass. Spicy Belgian yeast provides a peppery clove aroma with notes of ripe banana and fruity ester, just a bit of sweet alcohol at the end. Aromas are bold and pleasant

T- dry and spicy yeast leads to sweet fruit with a bit of clove and alcohol, the finish leaves a dry-yet-fruity sweetness in the palate with peppery spice and coriander.

M- medium body with lively medium carbonation leads into a foamy mouthfeel mid-palate, continuing through to the finish, leaving just a bit if warming alcohol.

O- a classic example of the style and great balance of spicy, yeasty sweet goodness.

A: Pale golden yellow with a big fluffy, pure white head that sticks around forever. Very cloudy and carbonated.

S: Crisp and clean, with Belgian yeasts, some subdued fruits and grains, a touch of spice. Mild.

T/M: Rich and delicious. Big yeasty flavor with champagne-like fruits, spices, some slight bitterness on the back end. Very smooth and creamy, with a touch of prickly carbonation at the end of each sip.

O: An amazing tripel, just so tasty and complex.

330ml bottle into a goblet.

Pours a medium orange with quite a bit of sediment making it into the glass. Tons of carbonation with a white fluffy two finger head that has ridiculous staying power. Awesome lacing as well.

Aroma is just about perfect for a Tripel. Lots of coriander and clove along with some spicy orange. Hints of alcohol but they remain in the background.A little bit of bready malt and yeasty spiciness.

Lots of coriander and spice in the flavor along with a huge punch of orange. Light bread in the background but the yeast and spicy flavors really dominate. Alcohol comes forward a little bit towards the finish with the mouthfeel being bone dry as it should be in the style. Just a touch of stickyness on the lips.

Overall, an excellent example of a Tripel and one that is a great pleasure to drink. I'll have to pick this one up again.
