BB date of Oct 2017, 12 oz pour into std pint glass. Clear medium gold color with nice medium carbonation. Not much head retention and minimal lacing. Spicy Belgian aroma. Flavor is classic Belgian but with a finish of apricots and cinnamon. I think the mouthfeel is a little light but I still think that the alcohol is well-hidden. If you are a serious student of Belgian triples, this beer may disappoint. For the rest of us, it is a delightful entry to the genre and very enjoyable. Victory does a great job overall.

Love the combination of spices; usually drink with Indian food or hot wings.

Does in fact pour an elegant gold. Well carbonated, strong head that dies down fairly quickly. Some persistent lacing. Small amount of sediment. Med-heavy bodied with an alcoholicy backbone (no surprise with and ABV of 9.5%). Aroma is of belgian spiciness, yeasty and citrusy. Flavor is that plus the alchy backbone. Lingering alchy warmth and subtle bitterness. Decent tripel. Like all tripels, it's one and done. 3.75.

Tripel ale with added spices. Good beer but I'm not a spiced beer fan

Bang for the buck one of the best Belgians going. Very enjoyable. Dare to compare.
