Pours with the towering head expected of the style. Nice sourish malty aroma. Color is hazy orange. Tastes of spice (peppery), hops, and sweet malt. beautiful to look at and even more beautiful to drink.

Such a full bodied beer without being heavy. So nice to drink an authentic triple, would love to try it younger. This one has been on the shelf for a couple of years.

Bottled in July 2014, consumed 3/15/15. Approximately 8 months of age.

Poured from the bottle into a clean beer snifter. Extraordinary head retention! I have never seen anything like this before!! In fact, I wanted to sip it but I declined because I wanted to see how long the head actually stayed. Aroma is of belgian yeast with the slight candi sugar presence that most Belgian brews have. Very light in color (about 8-10 SRM). Tastes of sweet estery goodness! I get subtle banana, golden raisins, and wheat upon first sip. Following the next few sips I get some port Wine on the palete. As a 10% abv triple, it's the strongest one ever had, however, it's the best overall up to and including the later brews.

these guys just crush it for me, one of my favorites, although i see their beer so rarely its always a treat to find one. this is a real heady tripel, foamy as can be in the tulip, bone white several inches on a slightly cloudy blonde straw colored base beer. the nose is sweet like most tripels, but this one for me is more about the yeast. it feels rustic and ancient, summery and different, not so fruity in flavor as other, but not spicy either, its sort of off the spectrum in that regard, which i like a lot, has a mustiness to it as well, which suits the sweeter base beer. maybe some oats in here, there is plenty of body, and i am surprised to learn its so strong, it drinks so much easier than this with its effervescent carbonation and only medium body. a bit of lingering sweetness, but made appealing by its interaction with the yeast flavor as it goes down. so cool to have this one on draft, i need to find more of their stuff. i am not usually a huge tripel guy, but this one ranks.
