Certainly on the light side of the style's range as far as color is concerned, Schuppenboer is a clear dark yellow that's almost gold. A fluffy, soapy pure white head rises on top and, after reaching right about one finger's height, is kept up pretty well by a constant carbonation. It leaves some spotting behind as it goes.
There are lots of esters on the nose. An unusually sweet rather than tart note of white grapes is evident. A white pepper spiciness, apple and pear flesh sweetness, both soft and slightly tart, and a hint of hay make for a pretty well-rounded beer. I'd like to get more clove or candi sugars from a Tripel, but this isn't bad.
Interestingly, a bit more of the tart sweetness than the soft sweetness takes over in the flavor, while the spiciness is ever-present and it actually gives a bit of floral hops bitterness as well. Yeast is strong without being too strong and malts are a little more on the doughy side than anything.
Carbonation is fairly high but kept in check, making for a crisp medium-bodied brew with a good underlying smoothness.
