Poured from 11.2 oz bottle into St Bernardus chalice.

Pours a hazy golden color with a solid finger and a half of white head. Appears to have moderate carbonation. Light lacing occurs.

This has a characteristically Belgian aroma to it. When I think of a Belgian beer, this is it. It has a spicy, coriander presence to it complemented by some light citrus (lemon). Has a somewhat bubblegum characteristic to it. The yeast characteristics dominate the aroma. No hops detected in the aroma. Some sweet malt.

Actually doesn't match the aroma as much as I would have thought. Lots of coriander in there, with the signature Belgian flare. Citrus and a few other fruits, making it slightly sweet. Actually, as weird as it sounds, one of the dominant flavors is carbonation. This was more carbonated than I thought and it gives it a little bit of sharp, but brief acidic flavor. Some sweet malt too, but in the background. Some warming alcohol on the finish.

As mentioned above, carbonation is a little higher than expected. Medium body. Fairly drinkable though for 8%.

Not as impressed with this beer as I was with the other St. Bernardus beers. Still a solid beer, but I think a little too high in carbonation. For tripels, it finishes right above average for me.
