From local Brussels/Ixelles grocery store, part of Tripel tasting, poured into the only appropriate glass I have (chalice) in my rented apartment.

Nearly two fingers white head, small bubbles, pretty fast dissipation. Fruity nose, sweet, peaches, green apple with light coriander aroma in the finish. The pepper notes are a bit more pronounced in the taste, pushing the fruitiness aside. Full mouthfeel, average effervescence, lingering coriander in the finish. A pretty full bodied and spicy variation on the style, certainly unique in my experience. Worth a try for fans of the style.

Milky yellow color. Light carbonation rises to the top. Little to no head. Love the smell. I get tangerine, orange, citrus. Awesome aroma. The taste is not too boozy for such a high BAC. It starts off crisp and finishes with a citrusy kick. A light carbonation dances on the tongue after every gulp. Overall, it's a good beer. I love everything about it other than the taste. Don't get me wrong, it's not terrible. But for $5+ per bottle, I really expected more.

I would recommend this beer to a friend.
