It has a light amber color with a white head. The smell has some fruitiness in it but it is mainly a smoky spice aroma. It reminds me of beef jerky. At the first sip, I noticed the same spice. It also has some citrus and malt flavor. The alcohol is strong, but not to harsh on the mouth. It is pretty good stuff. Not the best Abbey Tripel, but far from the worst.

Solid Tripel, but lacks complexity and after some time bubble gum aroma gets quite annoying. Otherwise, decent maltiness, some fruits mostly orange, light spices, bubble gum. Mostly sweet with light bitterness and light tartness.. Refreshing and enjoyable, but would prefer other Tripels

I don’t see the point of getting this kind of beers to 11% abv, unless the guys who usually drink it make it a pride... I already find Westmalle would better be a little less boozier. This is hugely boozy.
