750 ml bottle into chalice, best before 3/2/2014. Pours lightly cloudy golden orange color with a nice 1-2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice rocky cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a nice amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pear, apricot, apple, golden raisin, lemon zest, candi sugar, honey, bread, clove, pepper, herbal, and earthy yeast esters. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of fruity, spicy, and malt notes. Taste of pear, apricot, apple, golden raisin, lemon zest, candi sugar, clove, pepper, bread, honey, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, candi sugar, clove, bread, pepper, honey, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity and spicy esters with malt sweetness; and nearly zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly slick, smooth, and lightly prickly that is nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with hardly any warming noticed at all after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent tripel style. Great balance and complexity of malt, fruity, and spicy flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

Beautiful foamy cap on the hazy amber brew. Served in a tall tulip for $7.50 at Beachwood.

The two overwhelming tastes are oxidation and bitterness. Very full-bodied flavor, but it tastes just like apple sauce with chewed up aspirins. Quite sharp in the mouth. A woody hint, but more metallic. Some murky malt plus corn flakes, followed by a vast swampy bitterness. Tastes like the just added some dirt to the wort. Going on record as one of the worst Belgian beers I've tasted.

On tap at George and Dragon in Barcelona.

Pours a dark muddy yellow with a big fluffy off white khaki head. Darkest tripel I have seen. Head falls apart awkwardly and leaves little lace.

Smell is a little coriander type spice and big caramel and candi sugar sweetness with some banana.

Soft carbonation and full bodied for a tripel. Lots of caramel/candi sugar flavor on this. The alcohol is detectable but I feel it works in between the sweetness and fruity spice flavors well.

Enjoyable tripel but too heavy on the sugar in the nose and taste.
