750 mL bottle, with a cork date that seems to read "02/11." Poured into a Duvel tulip.

The beer is a hazy, cloudy peach color. The head is almost too persistent. A solid wall of meringue-like, marshmallow foam last and lasts, and there's two fingers' worth at least. Scattered lacing around my glass.

An explosion of ester fruits and citrus in the aroma. Pure, vibrant bananas and bubblegum. Wheat and bread. There's a little bit of lemon zest to round things out. Sweet overall.

The taste is markedly more complex than the (nonetheless pleasant) aroma. Those Belgian yeast characteristics come through, along with a more evident citrus profile. Candied orange peel is in full force. There's also a very nice peppery kick that tempers the sweetness.

Wonderful mouthfeel, effervescent and lush. I could see this being a year-round staple.

A really excellent tripel, and a modicum of the style. A classic.
