This beer pours a yellow-gold, producing a clear white head that leaves tracings down the side of the bottle. The beer smells like a typical tripel, but the alcohol scent is very noticable. Thankfully, the alcohol doesn't dominate the flavor nearly as much as it dominates the aroma. The flavor is great. It's hard to describe beyond saying that it's an appetizing example of the triple. The most amazing thing about this beer is its drinkability. The ABV is 9%, but you'd never guess it by the taste. The beer's flavor overwhelms the alcohol, and the only hint of the strong alcohol (other than the smell) is a moderate alchol bite at the end of the drink. Overall, this is a 9% ABV beer that has a bite no more noticable than that of a typical Bock beer.
I highly recommend this tripel. Be careful, though, as it can put you down quickly with its deceptive strength.
