Consumed 04/14/08.

Clear copper color. No head. No active carbonation.

Aromas of solvent and bubble gum.

Flavor is sweet, redolent with bubble gum. Finishes clean, but with a resiny sweet aftertatse which is a bit cloying. A slight peppery spice helps cut that, but not quite enough.

Not a terribly accomplished tripel.

Pours orange. No real head.

Smells like sweet candy. That's it. Just sweetness.

Taste is incredibly one-note. I don't get bubble gum, I get pure sugary sugar. I mean, this has known of the complexity I associate with the style, or with Belgian beers in general. It's just a super sweet, watery ale.

Avoid.
