Good god the alcohol. Not much on hops, but not
supposed to be. Very light body. Where is the alcohol
coming from? Noticeable belgian white flavors--spice
wise. I like it just for the buzz. :)

Hard to find good tripels, but surprised myself by really liking this one. Very spicy, lots of zing. Plenty of orange peels, coriander, and yeasts.

How they put this much alcohol (9%) in such a light beer is beyond me. Pale yellow body, OK head. Light wheat aroma, slightly fruity. Seems almost hefe in taste -- sweet malty, wheaty, easy going with decent spicy aftertaste.
