served in a pint glass. golden and clear. decent dotty lace. smells of yellow grains and candy sugar, bubble gum, apple sauce and clove, some alcohol. not a hugely robust "trippel", some clean fruitiness could almost be construed as soapy, a yeast element is noted. bright carbonation, with watery feel, moderate sweetness with solid cookie malts, and a tad of lemon bitters will emerge with authority if given time. good entertaining beverage.
