Very dry, phenolic, citrusy, and vinous grapey. Some cloves and coriander. Getting Pilsner malt too. Not bad.

Poured from the 75 cl. bottle into a tulip glass. Best before end of year 2016.

A pretty solid perfect looking brew. Glowing lemon gold, with excellent clarity but a touch of cloudy body color. Excellent rising fast volcano of carbonation in the middle of the glass. Head is frothy and rocky, bleach white, with an excellent eggshell and creamy top. Easily makes two fingers or more off the pour with more aggression and leaves a great bowled puck while it slowly settles. An absolute great looker of a brew, practically perfect.

Fantastic aroma coming off this. Candy and slight sweet qualities but far more perfume smelling of these nice garden like floral notes. Has a sensing hop angle that gets a bit soapy though in it's bitterness and is quite less on estery sensing flavors. Still pretty neat though on the nose.

Palate gets a bit unexpected and jaring slightly. Very light bodied brew and mixing senses of wet flat carbonation. A very odd mid palate that is really getting into a soapy character in flavor, with hints of lemon tangy soda quality. Finally some of the Belgian yeast like flavors make an appearance, with some slight malt sweetness but there's a very odd aftertaste that comes out almost menthol and citrus flavored.

Interesting tripel but stands out quite odd from the classics, and really stands out particularly weird amongst the other produced better Belgian classics.
