Bomber poured into my large St. Feuillien goblet, Tripel 7 is a dark golden orange with a chestnut center and small white head that settles to a steadfast skim and tight collar. Not a fan of these dark tripels.

Smell is off, a little vinegar, butterscotch...not good. As I work through the beer, I try not to smell it. The diacetyl dissipates some after given time to breath, but the apple cider vinegar irritatingly remains.

Taste, as scared as I was with the dark murky appearance and unappealing aroma, was not to bad. Caramel, spicy esters, drier finish. Buttery diacetyl and no phenols. Satisfying and rather smooth, with a very slight mineral, metallic bite on the finish. There is a very distinct cream soda taste that is rather pleasant but totally inappropriate for the style.

Mouthfeel is pretty light, with a bit of a flat feeling to the large bubbled carbonation.

Drinkability is not to bad, the lighter body and taste gives is a quaffable brightness and hides the ABV very well. Very smooth, it drinks more like a light dubbel. Still, there's just to much diacetyl.

This was the fourth beer that my wife brought back for me from Seattle. Poured from a bomber into a Belgian style tulip glass. Developed a decent sized, frothy head. The color was a dark golden yellow. The taste was better than I expected from this small brewery. If someone told me this was a tripel from a Belgian brewer, I would have been fooled. As a fan of tripels in general, I thoroughly enjoyed this offering and wish that more American versions of Belgian beers were this authentic.
