Poured into snifter.
Excellent hazy amber with huge off-white head, endless & respectable retention, never dies to nothingness :). Very complex and tender aroma - sunny malts, slight honey, delicate yeasts, spices & citrus. Flavour is semisweet, round, unlikely alcoholic, fruity to neutral malt palate. Oily with moderate drinkability. Anyway, excellent & mighty tripel.

Soft clove and barnyard funky graininess meet the nose with peppercorns, bread and spice. The flavor is quite zesty and spicy with a front of cloves and peppercorns. Mid palate perceives more bread and lemon as this finishes with Apple and pear. The feel is very easy and light with a slight dryness.

It may be the case that I go for a more defined beer in type/style/genre. Compared to many of the other trippels (Belgium only, not American versions), this one just seemed a bit more subtle in every department. Less fruit in the start, though it does stay on the finish. Less nose than others. A disclaimer: my nose may be tainted by a preference for severely hopped beers locally. Color, head, mouthfeel all fine and as expected for style.
