A classic Belgian tripel that is truly the benchmark of the style. It pours a hazy golden color with a thick off-white head that shows serious staying power in the glass. The aromas are fairly intense with fruity notes of banana and stone fruit at the forefront and supporting aromas of sweet spice, yeast and a touch of candi sugar. The full and creamy mouth offers more of the same rich flavors as the nose suggests, with a great spice and lemony hop characteristic remaining on the long finish.
