(11% ABV so tread lightly.)
The beer was crystal clear with a white frothy head which lasted very well to coat the glass.
The aroma was fruity and nicely spicy with strong pepper and an estery fruit chracter and a caramel malt.
The flavor was lightly spicy with a low caramel and light malt presnece. The flavor almost had a pineapple characteristic.
The finish was dry with a strong peppery character long into the aftertaste. The body was meidum and the moderate carbonation lent a creamy mouthfeel. The beer gave a nice warming presence after consumption. Actually a very good tripel. Be careful with this one at 11%.
Served in a Garre glass, at Garre in Brugge of course, on 9/13/06 and 9/14/06.
Serving type: on-tap

This poured with a hazy apricot orange color and a head with tons of life.
The aroma was sadly simple but overly fragrant. I caught strong banana and clove or peppercorn but that was about it.
The flavor is unlike the nose as its vastly complex with honey, maple syrup, yeast, clove, sweet green Apple and pear. The finish is a bit twangy as it there's a sour note.
The feel is slick and full but the carbonation is fuller and expansive.
Never been a huge fan of Tripels but I must say the flavor of this is amongst the most complex I've seen and it makes this well worth the try.
