11.2 oz single, $4.50. Poured into a tulip.

A: Quite light for the style with a meringue-like, very large, very white head. Can't ask for too much more in this dept.

S: Lightly floral. Cotton candy. Yeast. Bread. A whiff of vanilla and a touch of booze. There's a lot to be found in here.

T: Delicious and rich. A touch boozy. Pilsnerlike breadiness on the back end adds a nice rustic quality. Very little sweetness.

M: Decadently creamy. Dry. Beautifully carbonated.

O: Not as thrilling as Westmalle, but this is my #2 for the triple style. Pretty flawless and appropriate most any time.
