Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Opaque and thick bodied appearance, with a nice booming apricot orange, to brass yellow. Head is a very cream forming off white to tan, with about two fingers. Nice creamy top with some whipped up like sheets of lacing. Very nice.

Excellent aroma for a tripel. Good hints of sweet bready like malts, and then some classic fruit pear and juiced apple qualities too. Bakery sweetness, some good controlled candy sugar that's not too out of control, adding to the fruit qualities nicely. Some faint banana, some good variety on the fruit angle, getting into fruit basket quality. Very very good.

Very nice delivering palate. Super creamy mouthfeel, coating with honey and vanilla like tones just amazing and them most impressive thing about the brew it seems. Lots of whipped cream and banana surprising quality in flavor. Warm hints of pear, even some soft tropical melon like qualities. Whipped up body like you could spread it on cake, with a big angel food taste, and soft graham crackers. Lingering spiced nutmeg and even peppermint action on the finish with a nice bit of dryness too.

Overall a great tripel, very different too from the standard Belgians also, very surprised by this as well.

Pours a golden-brown colour, slightly pale and translucently cloudy. Head is decent when first poured, sinks to a thin crown, but fed by a steady stream of bubbles, very strong in fact, keeps it alive from beneath. Good colour, lace is decent. Maybe a bit too carbonated.

Nose is pungent, and delicious, and deliciously pungent. Huge amounts of rich, ripe fruit - peach, apricot and fresh figs, as well as white grape skins and a lot of fortified wine/sherry sweetness. All capped off by a tasty blend of spice - pepper, nutmeg, anise and turmeric. Big capsicum sourness lingering behind. The strength of odour gives hints of alcohol, but no methyl character. Stunning and arresting nose. Beautifully done.

Taste is somewhat less complex, at least immediately. Starts sweet and sour, with more fruit - peaches, figs, banana as well, and stewed pears - giving way to a piquant spice, lots of clove and cinnamon, even paprika come through on the mid and more of that capsicum sourness. Even a slight chilli whazzo! hit on the end, a really arousing spice to this, especially at the back.

Mouthfeel is slightly disappointing, quite sizzly and sharp. I guess that's where you notice the alcohol, if you swill it in the mouth. But not quite as much body as I'd like either.

Absolutely no hit of alcohol though, this is a really deadly drop. Deceptively drinkable and very tasty, just superbly handled with all the right Belgian characters and an immensely satisfying sweet/spicy balance. Awesome.

The beer pours a beautiful golden color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a dry, earthy yeast scent that compliments a sweet pale malt and bitter hop aroma. The taste is good as well. It has a smooth pale malt flavor that goes down easy with bit of sweetness and a mild hop character. The yeast esters create a fine fruity/earthy finish. It's extremely drinkable for a 9% beer. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a full bodied beer with adequate/good carbonation. This is a good drinking beer. It's got excellent yeast character and a nice hop presence.
