This slightly cloudy orange golden brew sits under an enormous head of mixed bubbles. Strong florals and some mineral notes fill the nose. This is a bracingly bitter beer, esp. considering the style. I have had IPAs that are not this bitter, which is fine (both in this case and in the case of the IPA). The texture is medium to full bodied but w/ a soft cushion of vigorous carbonation that keeps things light and creamy. I have not drank it in a while but something about this recalls Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza. It is possible that this is not intentional, but there is a sort of wild, woody character to the bitterness than makes me think there might be something interesting going on on w/ the yeast. This is one of those beers that gets better throughout the glass. If you rated from a small sample, you owe it to yourself to try a full glass.

On tap at Jacs. Hazy golden yellow-tan. Big steady white head. Significantly hoppier and drier than most Tripels, still has a sweet sugary backbone though. Maybe not as cloying as some examples. Very drinkable, well done.

In bottle at the Cafe Red Rose. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of candy sugar, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nice.

Trappist1 (646) - Diest, BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2015
clear blond with a white head. very malty grainy nose, alcohol and some yeast falling through, straight forward. malty taste, nothing new or earth shocking, but in fact, pretty balanced and even nice. short finish with a sweet body. ok belgian tripel, beats the average.and, very drinkable...

330ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a huge frothy white head with lots of lacing. Aroma is light toasted malt and yeast. Taste is bitter hops with some spices with some underlying malty sweetness. Heavy body and loads of carbonation make this a great sipping beer to enjoy on a cool evening.
