Karmeliet pours with an amazing head and big, big carbonation gushing upwards. The colour is pale amber and cloudy

The aroma is strong even before you put your nose to the glass. Apricots, lemons and a citrus infused peppery Belgian yeast are all discernible. Bananas are there too, as in a hefeweizen.

The taste is buttery and smooth. I notice white grape and pepper along with slightly funky Belgian yeast and spicy pepper. I also get some pear taste. The finish is very dry.

Overall, this is a very characterful ,spicy Belgian tripel that stands out from the crowd.
