This is an 8.0% ABV Belgian tripel-style abbey ale from Brouwerij De Ranke in Wevelgern, Belgium. It is unpasteurized and unfiltered. The beer pours a somewhat hazy burnt orange and dark golden. There is a generous head of white foam, but it dies down fairly quickly. The aroma is sweet, candied sugar, orange, citrus, grassy, with wool blanket. All the aromas merge into a perfect blended unison, as does the flavors which directly follow the aromas. It has enough hops to challenge the sweetness and finish refreshingly dry. It is well and finely carbonated, with a lively mouthfeel. This is oh so good.
