This beer is just so easy to drink. smooth, hardly a hint of alchohol. Hint of flowers, citrus. Medium mouth. Superb, easy drinker that stands up to just about anything in this style. It may not be quite as great as the Quad, but it's still a beer I could happily drink if I could only have one choice for the rest of my life. Love it.

Lightly hazed golden body with a foamy cap that retains extremely well and generates gobs of lacing.

Complex, effervescent, fruity, light band-aid, belgian yeast, mild spice.

Matches up well with the nose. Lots of fruit esters, some warm alcohol, plenty of spice from the yeast and hops. Very complex taste.

Very dry mouthfeel with lots of carbonation.

Awesome example of the style. Just an all around beautiful tripel.
