Appearance: clear deep gold with one fat finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a persistent cap and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: red wine, oak, candi sugar. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (7/10) Palate: medium slightly slick body, moderate carbonation, off-dry warming finish. (4/5)

Lots of red wine character here, completely dominating over the base Tripel character. Not a complaint, just an observation. Well-balanced overall, and pleasantly warming. (15/20)
