Cloudy look, not as bright as I'd expect. Musky aroma with a strong head. Flavors are sweet and savory. Not as boozey as it could be for a tripel. Good beer.

Enjoyed this beer at De Garre while visiting Brugge on 11/8/2015. Served in a De Garre goblet with a dense latte-like head that exhibited excellent retention during the tasting. Color was a tawny orange-gold with a slightly hazy clarity. Nose expressed citrus fruit esters, a kiss of coriander and yeast. Taste follows but was not as expressive as the nose - a little more dull and muted with a slightly herbal finish. Mouthfeel was light-medium in body (but closer to light) with a pleasant, even carbonation. Overall, a solid example of the style - great nose and appearance; however, it fell slightly short in its other components. A great beer, but not up to its world-reknown hype in my opinion.

Very creamy beer, served in Brouge with 1/3 beer, 2/3 foam, and a few small cubes of cheese that pairs very nicely.

The head is as good as the body, thick and tasty. Possibly my new favorite trippel.
