Fantastic... a great Belgian beer, smooth, spicy and very easy to drink. Don't know why there are so many negatives.

Not a bad effort by a brewery far better known for its stellar pilsner than Belgian style ales. Gorgeous golden color and a rapidly dissipating bright white one finger head. Yeast wafts from the pour. There is a dusty, musty yeast undertone that is not unpleasant, but might put some off. The mouthfeel is also noticeably unlively for the style. The high concentration of booze is virtually unnoticeable. In the end, it's a decent attempt, and one that I would enjoy drinking get again, but there are many superior offerings in this style elsewhere. La Fin du Monde and Long Strange Tripel come immediately to mind.

Solid tripel, crisp and balanced. Nice golden color and thick white head. Grape on the nose, yeasty. Good mouthfeel, nice carbonation, refreshing. the 9.5abv well covered. I enjoyed this overall.
