12oz bottle purchased at McKinnon's. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow body with a good inch of off-white head. Smells fruity and yeasty with some spice notes. Tastes fruity, zesty, slightly pithy, with spicy notes, slight bit of pepper, and a hint of alcohol warming. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A bit of a sipper though one sip definitely invites another. A pretty decent Tripel. Better than I thought it would be.

Poured from a bottle to a pint glass

Appearance: Golden yellow, w/ a light creamy head.

Smell: Complex with aromas of spice, sweetness, esters and even a bit of alcohol. No hoppy bitterness. Just light sweetness.

Taste: Also quite complex. Sharp initially, w/ a subtle sweetness. Can definitely taste the esters in this one. A little floral and spicy. There is some hoppiness, but not overly bitter. Some yeasty tones. The beer is overall rich, strong and somewhat thirst quenching.

Mouthfeel: Suprisingly light and crisp. Pretty easy to swallow for a higher alcohol beer.

Drinkability: This is a pretty solid beer. It is a little sweet however. My wife loves this one. I enjoy it, but cannot see myself ordering it with other belgian beers available. It is in my opinion a good call.
