This beer is definitely underated. The mouthfeel is wonderful, really champagne-like. The taste Is herbal and fruity but all in all, it's very delicate. Greatness from history. Phenoly, estery, grainy and a bit spicy. Clear and balanced

Pours a hazy golden color with long lasting bubbly head.

Aroma of spicy phenols, Belgian yeast, some clove and candy sugars

Flavors of peppery phenols, clove, yeasty Belgian goodness with a dry finish.

Mouthfeel is warming, chewy and carbonated. Leaves a slight alcohol
presence in the finish

Overall I'm very happy with m selection. I picked this up on a whim as I love trying obscure Belgians, especially tripels and I would definitely buy this again.
