I drank this from a 12oz bottle into a golden monkey tulip.

The beer pours a cloudy gold with a decent sized white head. Good lacing and retention.

The aroma is pretty light which is a good thing, but its not to great. It starts off showing some nice floral notes you welcome in a tripel but then finishes with a definite note of skunk.

The taste is also floral but skunky in the middle and finishes floral again.

For me victory is really up and down, and this one is definetely down. Not a tripel I will be having again.

Beautiful golden color with ample carbonation, yet a bit of a lackluster head for the style. Smell is honey and fresh flowers. The peppery flavor is a fine example of the style, if not overly complex. Alive with fruity esters, coriander, and the usual suspects in a well-crafted triple. Mouthfeel is luxurious and crisp at once. Having consumed more than my share of botched attempts at Belgian beers by micros, I shied away for awhile, but now having tried it I'm very impressed by this, and will definitely buy again. Where else can you get a sixer of a triple for $10, anyway?
