alassio (86) - USA - APR 13, 2010
Amazing balance of smoothness, yeastiness, touch of sweetness, brightness, and a warm blast of hops. 9.2% Alc is prominently placed on the label, and that makes it all the more enjoyable (both the placing on the label, and in the bottle). As tripels go, this is zesty, brilliantly carbonated, warm and wonderful.
