This is a delicious Tripel of the highest standards. A beautiful golden color with a firm head and good lacing. Some nice sweetness on the sides, with dubbel like maltiness. There is a bit of slight hoppiness on the roof of the mouth. The sizzle here is perfect: the carbonation biting from the start to finish. This is going to rate as one of my favorites!

This Tripel is unique due to the fact it's brewed with Gruut or Gruit...an herbal mixture that was the beers hops before brewers started using hops in beer.

Rushing gold color, highly active flow, crytal-white bubbly head and a crazy gyser-like center.

the aroma has rich, hearty, earthy and herbal notes all over the place. Spicey lager-yeast aroma, sour-earthy, corn, wild fruits and pepper. Very complex aroma that really is very nice.

The flavor has sour-earthy yeast that is very complex with multiple layers. Subtle dried fruits and a hint of pepper. The gruut adds futhur herbal depth to an already deep earthy punch. The malt is light and crisp with dry bready notes that falls into perfect balance for this style.

The feel is usually one of the best aspects of Belgian-brewed "bottle fermented" style beers, lush, snappy, zippy bite that is dry but goes down very smooth.

Overall, a classic and really unique.

On tap at venti's
Beautiful blond pour with light lacey head.
Nice estery nose with a zest of spiciness
Flavor was great a touch lighter on carb than I would expect, however, this beer was still fantastic. The ester and spice combination was divine and the beer was very drinkable. I would say this was one of the best Belgians that I have tasted.
Hops come out in a smooth finish that is semi dry and helps finish this great beer

This is great beer when you factor in the price for a case. Tasty, crisp, with an ABV of 8.7% that comes across in a relaxing fashion, I could drink this all afternoon. Correction: I am going to drink this all afternoon...

If you like tripels and pick this up you will become a fan. Wow, still can't believe this case was under 60 bucks. Amazing.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

appearance: Wow just beautiful it is like a perfect combo of everything yes I said perfect. Beautiful hints of amber.

smell: It just hits you perfectly. I would have to say something obscene to fully describe it but wonderful you fall into it. A little bit fruity and aromatic. It is worth it just for the smell

taste: Bold, it hits you with the aroma and bam there you are. A bit fruity like bananas. Has a bit of a bight surprisingly but not to shabby.

mouthfeel: Stays with you in fact the bitters take over for a potent bitter taste long after the sip is gone.

overall: Not bad, I am certainly not disappointed and if this is your type of beer you will be jumping over angry wives to get one. It make me want to try more Belgians if nothing else
