Got a growler of this at the brewery a while back.

A - Nice rich golden color. Medium white head with fine bubbles. Quite clear for a Belgian beer.

S - Lots of the typical Belgian yeast spice character (phenolic) predominant. Just underneath that is a nice maltiness and alcohol. No hops to be found.

T - Very similar to the smell the Belgian character holds true but isn't the only player with lots of malt and a strong booziness. It's pretty complex beer but it is hard to get over the amount of alcohol that the beer puts underneath the Belgian yeast. It is mostly crisp with a malt character and some alcohol but no bitterness.

M - Medium mouth-feel. Moderate carbonation. A pretty drinkable beer with a lighter body for such a high alcohol beer and no bitterness

Overall, a pretty good beer. Though it isn't as smooth or complex as Chimay Tripel I did enjoy it. The heat from the alcohol and Belgian spice tends to subside and after two pints of this hefty beer you don't even have any problems in the world (except if you have to drive home!) If you haven't tried this I would recommend it but I don't expect you to enjoy it more than other Tripels out there.
