There was a lot of sediment in the bottle, so the pour was unevenly cloudy. A small head formed and disappeared completely leaving some lacing. The color is a dark straw.
The smell is a strong, sweet floral and fruit aroma; it's almost a licorice smell. The feel is well carbonated and smooth with a flavor flavor of lighter, honey-like sweetness and a dry finish. The aftertaste is dry and slightly hoppy.

Considering the style, this is an incredibly drinkable beer.

Fantastic Brew!

Pours cloudy golden with a more than ample head for a 10% brew.

Elegant lacing and head retention. Again, plenty of carbonation for so much alcohol.

Sweet and clean trippel smell.

Great mouthfeel. Very light for a big brew.

Super drinkable.

A+ beer.

Sampling a cellar temp snifter. The beer pours a hazy copper hue with a bleached white head of .5 cm that fades slowly to a wispy surface layer.
Aroma is white grapes and wine with a little bubble gum and a general fruity esters. Very pleasing nose.
The first sip reveals fine rolling carbonation and an average body with sticky textures. The flavor is similar to nose with a sweet fruit hit of white grape and wine with some rock candy and sweetness. No booze or hops anywhere. Very approachable and complex tripel. A nice brew that I enjoy a lot and would definitely try again. A great example of the style that would even be good for newer folks to the style. Nothing over the top but well nuanced.
