12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass...
This beer poured out a nice hazy golden straw color with a fast falling head and minimal retention in the glass. The smell is pretty much typical for a tripel... strong malts, yeasty, estery, and with a fairly strong phenolic scent. You can also pick up the alcohol through the nose. This is a good tasting version of a tripel... very yeasty with lots of esters, a nice warming alcohol sensation, and a tart/crisp finish. By no means the best tripel out there... but not bad. A thin bodied brew with a sparkling carbonation feel in the mouth. I found this beer fairly easy to drink despite the 9.0% ABV... it seems to be hidden fairly well by the yeast and malt qualities. If you find this in your travels... it's worth a try!
