This tripel produces massive amounts of yellowish white head, and has champagne like carbonation to it. The body is slightly hazy and dark gold in color.

The aromas are fruity. I detect hints of apple and pear.

The taste is very inviting. It is very apple like, with hints of white grape. The taste also reminds me a bit of ginger ale.

This brew is very refreshing and altogether well balanced. It's also got the typical warm alcoholic quality to it.

Absolutely love this strong Belgian Trippel. Fell in love with when I first tried it in Bruges/Brugge
Whilst quite strong, it is such an easy drinking, and smooth beer. Absolutely amazing.

Very possibly the best Belgian Triple that I've ever had - only trouble is that it was on tap at a local bar and I can't find it at any area stores!
