A: Poured into a St. Bernardus chalice. A hazy gold, white light but well formed head, didn't leave just lace, left a layer of foam that gripped the walls of the glass.

S: Can't imagine a better balance of Belgian yeastiness, earthiness, and a little sweetness.

T: Just like the smell. This tripel was so flavorful yet not overdone it was ridiculous.

M/D. The alcohol didn't make it too slick, but it had a nice medium-light mouthfeel

This is a beer I could drink and drink forever. So interesting yet it's easy to quaff.

Expensive, but the best tripel I have ever had. I could not find any flaws. An explosion of flavor, yet comfortable and not overwhelming
