Golden color with an incredible abundant fluffy head growing like a mushroom above the glass line, and with eternal retention and showing some laces. Apparent carbonation going up that stays for a long time.
Nice aroma that explodes in the air as soon as you open the bottle. I got lots of peaches, Belgian yeast, spearmint, pine and brown sugar. Notes of Cointreau, wheat and a light sourness. A bit medicinal.
Flavor of sweet over ripped pineapples, banana, oranges, spicy yeast and wheat. Notes of honey and Cointreau. Mildly dry aftertaste with a hint of lemon.
Medium to full body with good fizzy carbonation. 8.4% ABV is harmonic with the overall beer.
Excellent beer, very complex and original. I was expecting a good Tripel but not necessarily fun and original. If you like Belgian beers, this is a must.
