Hazy pale amber, darker than a lot of tripels I have had and the lace is just ok as it leave only a ring. Faint whiff of alcohol, fruit and solvent but mostly toned down. Touch of tropical fruit as well in the nose. Nicely layered and infused carbonation, fluffy moderate body that goes creamy underneath the crispness. Solid dry malt character, phenols are present with waves of herbal flavour and the sweet and spicy alcohol delivers some fruitiness to the taste buds. Chalky yeast. Undertone of hops show a tired bitterness but all of the other flavours pick up the slack to keep things in balance.
