coudy yellow, smooth slightly offwhite head.
Very very nice belgian trippel aroma. spicy, faint funk, flowery, dry , in fact quite dry, faint yeasty and sugary notes. well balanced.
flavor is yeasty, spicy, fruit peel, dry, almost mild. Not as good as the aroma, but still pretty decent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice crisp and hazy golden honey body with a off-white head that fades very quickly. Aroma of yeast, light spices, wheat, honey, flowers and definitely some alcohol. Medium-bodied; Spicey wheat and yeast notes with a lot of hops for the style and a bitter, spice kick of coriander seed and curacao. Aftertaste shows a lot of character - the yeast and wheat dominate, but the spice flavours are noticeable and the alcohol and hoppy finishes show very well with a dry complexity at the very end. Overall, a very nice and dry/wheatier finish and a pungent hop note. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Bier Tempel in Bruxelles, Belgium for €2,50 on 02-January-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 03-October-2011.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light orange coloured beer with a medium head that could hold a bit longer, but stikcs nice to the glass. The smell is pretty simple: alcohol, citrus, spices, hops. The taste is sour-bitter, a bit unpleasant dryness comes trough. Spiced, hoppy beer, dry and earthy finish. Not really my tripel.
