Served into a Unibroue tulip.

A: Golden with a big foamy head, looks well bodied when poured.

S: Hops, banana, vanilla, a little bit soapy, sweet.

T: Same as the smell, but taste a little bit like copper, it has some carbonation feel, it's a little bit warming but the alcohol it's very well masked.

Overall it's a good beer, can have another one any time.

A very nice tripel indeed. Velvety and light, yet with enough oomph to deliver a hearty flavor to the palate. Light tangerine with a billowing white head. Clove, spices, hint of wine, pears, orange peels and apples. The alcohol is well hidden until you swallow and it creeps down your throat. Well carbonated and lively. Very nice.
