An absolute favorite Belgian tripel. Pour a brilliant yellowish amber with effervescent bubbles that die down to a nice pooling layer of white foam and some clinging lacing. Nose of Belgian candy sugars, light citrus fruits of pear, green grapes, and a light fresh bread aroma. VERY NICE. Flavors is up front Belgian candy malts, light white pepper and herbal spiciness on the back with a slight bittering hops rounding this brew out nicely with alcohol warmth kicking in on the aftertaste. Highly carbonated mouthfeel makes this a very enjoyable Belgian tripel. CHEERS!

Poured from 330mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a moderate haze and a relatively strong effervescence. Head is two fingers of frothy ivory foam. It's an attractive tripel.

Smell: sweet with a clean malt aroma and a nice fruitiness with a hint of pear, my favorite aroma in a tripel. There's also a soapy, floral aroma that I like; perhaps this is due to the spicing of the beer (the label says "ale with spices"), but I can't call out a particular spice by name.

Taste: light malt with a lighter fruitiness than the aroma and a distinct chalkiness, which I like; but, there's a little bit of alcoholic heat, which works at cross-purposes for me. Good, but could be a little smoother, I think.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a huge carbonation and bodacious creaminess. Gotta love this in a tripel!

Overall: I like this beer quite a bit. I feel like there's something in the flavor, whether it's a bitterness from the spicing or an alcoholic heat, which negatively impacts its smoothness. Still, it's a drinkable tripel I'd be happy to have again.

Visual: Wheat straw with a slight haze, almost a dark gold. Nice thick head.

Aroma: Hints of fruity citrus, preferably grape, coupled with a coppery essence. Very flowery bouquet with spices

Taste: More sweet than bitter but definitely a presence of bitterness, also with peppery sweet and spicy flavor.

Mouth-feel: Light to medium body with a clean aftertaste at the back of the palate. Light, refreshing carbonation with a creamy sensation.

Overall: Excellent Belgian beer that captures many of the style's best qualities of a sweet and spicy touch.

I love this beer!

A: Clear golden extremely carbonated body with an off-white head. Excellent head retention and lacing.
S: Clove, spicy and yeast aromas. A hint of bubblegum as it warms. T: Bready malt flavors lead to spicy middle & a clean, dry finish. Spiced presence is notable and distinct.
M: Smooth, clean and dry.
O: Excellent Belgian Tripel.
