Pours deep copper, hazy with a very wide white foam head, excellent retention. Smells citric, sweet, caramel, and lots of fruit esters. Taste is complex, citric, alcoholic and bitter. More bitter than the usual belgian tripel. Caramel notes are strong in taste. High body and high carbonation. Overall very nice belgian tripel, monks deliver again.

Veiled golden color with strong activity. Thick frothy beige 4 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with strong legs. Flavors of apples, caramel, sweet grains, yeast, clove, and floral spices. Thick sweet grainy flavors with a slight metallic and alcohol aftertaste. A warming beer, almost creamy, a little dry and vinous. Oily medium body with almost champagne like carbonation. The finish is quite strong, yet well intensified and still short. Overall a very good quality beer, with nice flavors but a little heavy on the spices. Still very fresh and enjoyable, but a harsh tripel having a strong vinous and metallic feel.

After opening the bottle, this brew very happily stuck it's head out.
After a bit of clean up, poured it into the glass. Looks orange golden, with a big fluffy head. Streaming carbonation.
Smell is very strongly of fresh white bread. After carefull sniffing, I detect some lemon and lemon peal.
Taste is balanced bittersweetness, slowly fading away in the back of my mouth. Quite mellow. Alcohol is hardly detected and well covered. Gives just a warming feeling.
Overall this is a good modest Belgian tripel, of which there are so many. Good flavour, good feel, not too extreme, just for enjoying.
Cheers.
