Served from the bottle into a globed glass

A- Poured a very clear dark golden color with soapy white head with big bubbles. Lots of visible streaming carbonation and some spotty lace left behind.

S- Dominant chalky yeast and clove notes, some banana and citrus notes, lots of candy sweetness

T- Big honey and candy sweetness, big chalky yeast notes, candied mandarin oranges, some clove and alcohol notes on the finish

M- Fuller bodied, big alcohol warming, slight alcohol burn, finishes very dry, and effervescent carbonation

O- Really nice tripel with a lot of sweetness but the alcohol really helps cut it from being too sweet.

This pours a clear, golden yellow color with a slight, white head. The aroma is yeasty with banana and citrus. The taste is sweet and refreshing with lots of yeasty banana flavor. It drinks very smooth and clean leaving behind a yeasty after taste. Not to bad, but doesn't begin to compare to a real Belgian made Tripel.
