Undated bottle at 42 degrees into a hand washed and dried snifter
Aroma – spicy and some fruity yeast esters
Head small (Maximum two cm, careful pour), white, creamy, diminishing to an irregular two tosix mm ring and partial monolayer
Lacing – none
Body medium orange, hazy (Bottle was stored on its side so sediment was stirred up.)
Flavor – spicy and fruity – no alcohol until it hits the stomach then the burn begins. Well balanced.
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation

I’m not usually a fan of triples but I’ll make an exception here. The aroma and flavor are both pleasing and reinforce each other, the alcohol burn is not overpowering, and the yeast does not add a mustiness I’ve found in many other triples.

Appearance 4, Aroma 4.25, Flavor 4.25, Palate 4, Overall 4

Not overly impressed with this one, head was on the weak side, light aroma and taste. I compare all tripels to Karmaliet, so it’s in some tough company. Decent but not outstanding.

I really enjoyed this brew, so tasty! I'm wondering what is wrong with some of you. How can you rate this beer low? It tastes fantastic and packs 9% abv. Does it have the head of a legendary Belgian beer? No. Does the smell knock your socks off? No. But you can't deny that taste. A nice offering from an American company trying to do a Belgian beer.

Mine was bottled on 10/22/14. Some of you are saying yours was boozy but honestly, I didn't get that at all. I ate some food when I drank this so I'm not sure if it skewed my palate, but it tasted very smooth and tasty. I had it on 4/16/15, I'm not sure if that amount of time aged it at all? idk.
