Large, white head, strong. Color dark gold. Very pleasant tasting, when I drank draeckenier, I felt that it is thick and full. Flavor: caramel, malt and very nice bitterness. Alcohol gently warming. Very delicious beer.

B-

750ml into a tulip. Absolutely stupid ridiculously difficult to open plastic cork, impossible without pliers as far too many are that use these f.u. cheap ass bottle sealers - how much more can a cork cost? simply stupid decision

Lightly hazed orange amber with an off white minor head, minor lacing. Surprising amount of tiny floaties given the bottle has been undisturbed.

Aroma is of over ripe pulpy light skinned summer fruits and honey as if about to turn.

Flavor is nondescript . . . . . Zero dry. Zero bitter. Zero phenols. No accents, no highlights, yet works fine as a bland, lightly sweet, won't interfere with any foods type brew. Medium bodied smooth mouthfeel.

11.2 oz bottle, into Pretty Things wine glass.

Really dark for a Tripel. Foamy off white head that holds quite well. Hazed amber colored body. Good carbonation to it.

Smells clean yeast aroma. Surprising that there is no booze in the aroma. A slight sweetness to smell.

I feel crazy to say this, but the flavor undeniably reminds me of Anderson Valley's Crema Cerveza. Similar sweetness to the beer. Smooth unexpectedly full mouthfeel. Head really plays a nice role in the mouthfeel. Aftertaste of Jaggery or some creamy sugar source.

Good beer, a bit strange when one is expecting a traditional Belgian Tripel.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of bread and wheat, with a little bit of yeast thrown in. The flavor is also fairly basic, with some wheat, bread and white pepper. There is not much going on, but nothing is offensive. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A slow pour produces a sudsy orange and white like head, shampoo in appearance with short staying power. Body color is clear with a slight cloudiness and a gorgeous ruby grapefruit orange color. Lots of angular straight pinhead white sized bubbless coming up, great lookin tripel.

A giant whiff of white grape juice hits the nose. Slightly sweet, it smells like grape must. It's really nice and wonderful and very impressive, I just wish there was more on the nose.

Taste is surprisngly weak. Slightly hot but a real sharp gaseous and wet quality to this. Malt chewy character and sweetness is non existent and replaced with a gaseous flatened white wine grape, and sharp fresh club soda.

Overall this is really disappointing based on looks and smell I was expecting something much better than this.
