Affligem Tripel, at 9% abv.
Look: Deep golden colour, with 1 finger white creamy head and good carbonation.

Smell: Lots of fruity notes, banana, citrus, a lot of sweetness from the roasted malts, caramel, vanilla. Really good stuff.

Taste and Feel: Spicy, fruity taste, lots of bitterness and sweetness with taste of caramel and smooth, creamy feel with lots of carbonation.

Overall, an excellent Tripel. It really is amazing. Complex and deep fruity aromas, caramel flavour. Never felt like a 9% abv. It's like a dessert really. Brilliant stuff

2010 vintage, so rating set to current average. Peach, pear, apple, and clove dominate the aroma. There's a touch of confectioners sugar.

Flavor is pear and apple forward, lightly sweet, with a toasted malt finish.
