Straw yellow color with great clarity. Let me say this, all but one of the seven beers I tried yesterday really looked pretty. And shit, throwing plums into a beer, that's bound to make it look a little uglier, so maybe I should give a pass on that one. But I digress, back to this beer. Virgin white head, over 1" deep, good lacing and retention. Aroma was pretty neutral, but didn't wack me over the head with alcohol or oppressive belgian yeast esters and phenolic activity, so its definitely above average in my book.
Taste, clean. So fresh and so clean. Where is the eight and a half percent alcohol? Nowhere to be found. Amazing cover, given that there isn't any malt heft here, it looks similar to Coors, but somehow absorbs all that alcohol. Very dry finish, great job there. One of the easier drinking tripels I've ever had, definitely see the Westmalle influence, and dare I say, this is every bit as good (or better).
