out of bottle in Amsterdam cafe
pours a nice golden color with a white creamy head of about 2 fingers with a nice lacing as it fades
aroma is wonderful full of fruits and nuts and sweet almost maltiness
taste is better with bananas and nuts with a great full mouth
this has to be one of the better tripels I have ever tasted wonderful beer!!!

12 oz bottle into a Teku

Big billowing off white head leaving some nice lacing. Straw color. Fruity esters on the nose, bubble gum. Taste follows the nose - nice bitterness, more fruit, very dry, full bodied. A gem

Found a 750ml bottle at a brand spanking new wine, spirits and beer store in my area. The place is so new, the smell of paint is still noticeable when walking in.

A: Clear, golden liquid with a massive head. Extensive lacing as I drink it which is one way to discern that this one is a good one.

S: Sweet fruit and candy sugar with yeast and a hint of pear. If I didn't know what I was drinking, I might think this is Duvel, or a tripel version of Duvel.

T: Really tastes how it smells. Which to me, is rare for a good beer. Sweet candy sugar with a hint of pear, stony dryness lingers at the finish. Simply a pleasure to consume.

D: I could drink another 750 ml, which is saying volumes considering the relatively high abv, but I'm sure I'd pay for it the next day. Nonetheless, an extremely drinkable brew even though it's probably not a session beer. Definitely a really good sipper.
