Pours a light orange color with a thin white bubbly head that quickly recedes. No lacing. Lots of visible carbonation.. Aroma is of fruit, yeast and spices. Yeast is a little overbearing. A lot more yeast in the taste. Followed by bready malts. A good deal of fruitiness, with no particular flavor standing out. Fruit lingers on the tongue quite a bit, playing nicely with the yeast. Didn't care for the taste much at first, but it grew on me as it warmed. Medium bodied. Carbonation isn't as heavy as it had appeared after pour. A surprisingly easy drinker for 9.5%. Although I am not particularly well versed in Tripels, I was expecting a bit more from this one. Still a solid beer, but not a must have.
