Overall very pleased with this. This is my first Belgian Tripel and it definitely comes close to commercial Belgians I've had in terms of aroma and taste. The alcohol taste is quite heavy (expected at almost 9%!), but I think a little more time conditioning should mellow help this a bit more. I'll be back for another sample in a few weeks...
