Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a huge foamy head with great retention and excellent lacing. Aroma consists of Belgian Malt with nice fruity ester and medium peppery yeast. Taste is an exceptionally well balance mix between a solid Belgian malt backbone with great notes of fruity ester and light peppery yeast. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Triple is one of my favourite style and this is one is exceptionally well balance with sweetness not overwhelming the whole mix. Probably one of the best North American examples of the style.

Poured from the 1pt 4.3 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Deep amber orange, with a real nice glowing orb shine to it. Some carbonation on the sides, pinhead in size, can't see much else through the body. Head is a little tiny, but bright white and very creamy. Manages only about a finger and a half height, but manages to keep a good size bowled puck throughout.

Subtle aromas. Maple sweet sugar, with an airy perfume like quality but not overly sweet. Small sensing sucrose. Mild and very simple nothing crazy, nothing really impressive either, just very solid in balanced sweetness, esters and heat.

Palate is a big shocker. Hints at lighter body, then the carbonation blasts in with huge depth and mimosa like feelings and power. Mid palate is awash in bright tropical fruits, mango, then some lemon , and big notes of papaya and thick cantaloupe like sweetness. Chewy finish, and popping champagne like quality but with a sweet malt depth and thick backbone. Almost crisp as well, hints of green herbs of sage and thyme to go with it.

Real solid impressive tripel, very memorable and a unique one for the North American side. Excellent job.
