Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 10th October 2016 and poured into a Chimay goblet glass.
Appearance: The beer poured a clear deep golden colour with a fluffy two finger white head which lasts a long time and leaves stringy lacing.
Aroma: Mainly bready malts and unripe banana with hints of pear.
Taste: Flavour is strong with sweet banana, clove, honey and bready malts. There was also a hint of spicyness and the booze comes through towards the end.
Mouthfeel: Dry, medium bodied with good carbonation.
Overall: This was quite a nice tripel especially when comparing its price to other decent tripels.
