On tap at Brasserie Beck, 2.19.12, $13 for 10 oz. pour. OUCH. Should have waited to Max's Belgian Fest the next day, though it did go rather well with the delicious Carbonnade.
Finger and a half pure white head, quick dissipation with minimal lacing. Clear orange gold, minimal visible carbonation. Taste is dry fruit, peaches, a bit of honey sweetness balanced by dry munich malt. Nose mirrors taste. Mouthfeel medium, good effervescence, ABV well hidden. I understand this is rather rare, but I'd rather have a Westmalle.
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.
