Single bottle from the LCBO, part of the fall release. Enjoyed on a cool rainy fall day.

Poured into my Duvel chalice. Lovely light golden, nice billowing head, recedes into a thin ring. Some lacing. Decent looking tripel.

Nose is stellar: lovely fresh citrus, soft wheat malt, a bit of yeast, spices, bubblegum, herbal hops. Essentially what I think of when I think tripel.

Tastes just as nice. Good herbal/bubblegum character, nice citrus bite to mellow out the sweetness, bit of spice and yeast to the finish. Very drinkable.

Mild bodied, easy to drink, light, moderate to high carbonation.

One of the finest Belgian tripels I've come across. Hits all the right notes. Definitely will be back for more of this.
