Additional notes 02/08/23 (Pictured)
Bottled 18 Jun 2022. A small gusher. Lace is good again.
Again, fifteen years later and this time out of the bottle and not on draft, plenty of alcohol is present. Nice, light burn. Not as fruity as some, muted esters and a lack of white pepper that is typical for the style, I would put this as a bit of an outlier in terms of the style, it seems a LOT drier. That said, I like it.

On tap at The Brick Store, Decatur, GA, USA.
Small 250mL serving in the De Glazen glass – why expect anything else? This is The Brick Store for crying out loud!
A richly orange marmalade colored body that looks viscous and rich. This is much darker and more orange than the standard Tripel. The head is not huge, but it does leave some superb lace.
Tripel like nose but with less fruit and more emphasis on the alcohol. However, this is not as aggressive in the taste as either the look or the nose would suggest. This is an unusual Tripel in terms of it’s richness – I like it a lot.
Drinks quite boozy, but in a controlled manner. Very tasty and a rich brew. More than a couple of small glasses and it would be too much for me.
