Pours a slightly hazy deep orangey gold. The head is slightly foamy and white, with moderate to light retention. The ring of head leaves spots of some sticky lacing. The aroma is mild with just faint hints of light fruit sweetness and yeast. The taste falls a little flat for me. It just lacks the delicate flavors of better tripels with only the malt bill coming through. The body is lighter weighted with just a small persistent carbonated tingle.

most carbonated beer I've had: 2" head lasted ~ 5 min. A bit citrus/funk going on.
** ABS is 9%, not 11 ***

Slightly hazy amber orange color with a thick huge beige head with eternal retention.
Aroma with notes of candied sugar, apple juice, pineapple, very mild clove, a bit of banana, herbs and biscuit malt.
Flavor with notes of Cointreau liquor, some lime peel, green apples, candi sugar, white wine, pears, herbal and floral hops, caramel and biscuit malt, mild toasted, coriander, cloves and ginger. Dry aftertaste with a good bitterness relatively to style.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation that is less effervescent than average which is welcome. Alcohol of 9% is very in harmony with the overall beer.
This was nice; very easy to drink and rounded Tripel, perfectly balanced but still modern with very present noble hops. Threesome of hops, alcohol and phenols.
