Belgian triple of an ocher somewhat transparent color and a whitey foam. A bit turbid and with visible efervescence.
Big maltiness on the nose, some belgian yeast and honey tones.
Taste is similar, just a bit fruity and with a nice bitterness. Alcohol is not evident, but as an 8%.. yeah you can feel it.
Body is ok, carbonation a bit higher than average.

Poured into snifter.
Clear golden/amber beer with modest off-white head, dissipating quickly to remnants on the surface. Smell is straight and typical as hell, malty, fruity, yeasty, predictable. So is a taste, imprisoned in classic organoleptic limits

Poured from a bottle into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium burnished gold amber with a two finger white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, light apple family and stone fruit, clove; spicy and mildly floral, classic tripel. Flavor is sweet bready malt, Belgian yeast, light stone and apple fruit, mild clove. Finishes subdued with light, sweet fruit and malt, muted clove and spices. Medium bodied with good carbonation. The aroma was classic tripel, nicely spicy, but the flavor is sweeter and the spicing is surprisingly mild. Although clearly a tripel, leans in the direction of a spicy dubbel. I enjoyed this, but it is slightly off style.

16th Dec 2012: on-tap in the Antwerp Gollem.

Slight haze to my golden/yellow bodied beer, on top a thin white head, it was larger when poured but by the time it arrived at the table it had sunk into it's self somewhat.

Fairly sweet malt and fruity nose, this also carried on into the taste.

The beer has something about it that I like: the yeast content sits well with the alcohol and although it might be a bit sweet for some it certainly hit the spot with me.

Complex and interesting: never seen it on-tap before or since.
