Hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma is mostly yeasty with sugar notes and some hay. Taste starts sweet with candi sugar notes, continues with yeast character and finish is more bitter with earthy hay and wood notes. Medium body, medium plus carbonation. Overall it's a really well made tripel with well hidden ABV.
