Outstanding beer. Not your standard tripel but this beer works really well for me. Very sweet and some hints of German lager flavoring a somehow. Very good beer!

Good looking beer, light golden clear, excellent head with retention and outstanding lacing. Excellent aroma, you pick up some citrus within the malt, a little bit of bread like a hefe. Very clean, nice balance, you get a little German thing going in the flavor, similar to pils but not dominating, citrus tart adds great flavor. Just a tiny touch of dry on the finish, but smooth and clean. Hides the ABV very well. Excellent beer.

Appearance: Nice deep gold with a slight haze under a really powerful snow white head. Looks bottle conditioned but still, it could be a protein haze.

Aroma: Pils malt is the main aroma in the beginning, with citrus and a biscuity smell. A little weak, though, a demerit in my book.

Flavor:
Up front: Citrus tartness, a slightly biting hop bitterness, and some sweet Pils mal... with some alcohol bite, too.
Middle: Very malty, the flavor of Pils, Biscuit and maybe Honey malts. One can also taste the telltale background flavor of clear Belgian candy sugar by the sweet, deep fruity flavor, but also nutty, almost hazelnut. There's also the small bite of alcohol.

Back: Here I get flowery Noble hop bitterness and then spiciness, citrus notes and a decent amount of tartness, and then hazelnuts, biscuity malt flavors, and sweetness that borders heavily on banana and apricots. On top of that, it's quite alcoholic, almost boozy, but not too heavy, just enough to tell you it's a Tripel.

Mouthfeel: Slightly creamy but verging into a thinness from the heavy use of sugar.

Overall: Not a bad Tripel, A mix of some bitterness, hazelnut, honey notes, biscuity and sweet malt, and then fruity (banana, apricot, citrus) flavors. I like it, flavorful but the alcohol notes turned me off some, but it wasn't too much and felt like it was a normal part of the beer. A mark of 4.1.

This Belgian Tripel is an exceptional beer. It has a slightly turbid appearance and a smooth, full mouthfeel. The taste is also full with a very strong caramel aftertaste that strikes the palate and lingers on the tongue, increasing in time. This is the BEST beer I have had in a long time.
