4.45/5  rDev +22.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5

One of the best looking labels I've seen in a long time. Don't know if that counts as appearance but I'm going to go with that theory. Cloudy golden color with a thin soapy head. Smells of apricots and floral hops, with a definite rose note. My mouth is watering now. Tastes sweet, mildly malty, fruity. Not complicated but just simply great. Mouthfeel is buttery and soft, with mild carbonation. Could be a tad more bubbly. The drinkability is outta the park. Very smooth, very balanced, very, very drinkable. This is an all-around very good beer with some outstanding characteristics. I need no help with this bottle, 750 or no.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance is a nice honey with a one finger head. 15 minutes later, there is still quite a bit of lace. Smell is very faint in general, some white grape, yeast, biscuit. Tournay`s taste is a bit sweet with fruits present and some bitterness. MF is leaning towards soft with less carbonation than I expected. It actually takes some characteristics from a farmhouse ale. An interesting beer from what I presume is a relatively small production brewer.

3.96/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

33cl bottle, several months past best by date but none the worse for it as far as I can tell. Label says 7% ABV.
This Tournay pours a slightly hazy (it's bottle-conditioned) amber body with an over sized creamy off-white head. The head holds up exceptionally well and leaves remarkable walls of creamy lace on the glass.

The nose is a gentle mix of bready malts and largely citrus fruit. Hints of grassy, herbal and floral hops. Unusual.

The flavor is mildly sweet, with some tartness and bitterness. There's more hop flavor than the nose suggests, at least by the finish. Floral, grassy and spicy notes linger with the biscuity malt in lingering aftertaste.

M: Nicely smooth, with a dry, light finish. Satisfying near-medium body.

O: Adequately complex with a fruity and floral heart. With a fine mouthfeel and great look, it is also easy to drink given the 7% ABV. More like a Belgian PA than a tripel. Certainly worth trying.

Served in a snifter at Firkin.

Call me a gentleman today... *ahem* This stuff pours a cloudy golden-straw topped by a finger of lightly cream-white foam. The nose comprises light wheat, light grass, light flowers, and light white bread. The taste brings in more of the same, though everything is stronger in its own right, especially the flowers, and there's a vague sense of citrus rind pervading the proceedings. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, if this is truly a tripel, it's a pretty sad example of the style. If it's just a Belgian pale ale (this is my perception going in), it's a bit better, but it's still a fairly boring beer. I get that it's meant to be a "pure" brew, one completely without extraneous spicing and whatnot, but it winds up being a bland little experience.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a slightly hazy light golden amber. Massive fine white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, light fruit and yeast similar to a saison. Unusual dry flavor of light fruit with the coriander and bitter spices forward. Flavor also leans towards saison/farmhouse yeasts. Long finish of bitter hops and spices. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. This was very different (and drier) than any tripel or Belgian blond I've ever had, but was quite good. A very interesting and enjoyable take on a tripel. I will buy again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 330ml bottle. Slight, thin beige head. Colour is a rich orangey-yellow. Looks like a real nice tripel. First sniff--doesn't smell like a standard Belgian tripel. Smells good, but I got honeyed fruit, herbal/grassy notes and some pale grain notes. It just doesn't have that robustness (perhaps due to the smaller ABV) and tart or bitter finish I associate with the style. Very interesting for what it does offer, though.

Drank on 3/17/12 @ night

Appearance: Nice opaque sandalwood color with a half inch head good retention and no lacing. Good carbonation.

Smell: Crisp and simple. Not much else too it. For some reason I could not pick out different notes.

Mouthfeel: Nice initial attack with a smooth transition.

Taste: Pretty decent. Not what I expected. Light citrus notes and medium hops taste. Very simple and nothing pronounced.

Overall: A simple belgian, nothing more, nothing less.

3.98/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750mL capped bottle into my Bruery tulip. Best before 4/2011 (hmm...). This batch is 7% ABV.

Hazy yet effulgent gamboge liquid capped by a thick growing head of merengue-like ivory. Massive lacing, good retention.

Big floral notes in the nose along with hints of cotton candy and gentle hops.

Yeast dominates the flavor profile with a mix of melon-like esters and spicy phenols. Honey-like mid-palate, though the finish is rather dry with a slowly evolving aftertaste with contributions from malt, hops, and the alcohol. Moderately bitter, grassy, and peppery.

Effervescent, pillowy, medium-bodied, and soft.

Low on alcohol and a bit cloudy for the style, this is still big on flavor and balance.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.

A - Pours a clear pale golden color with some slight straw yellow hints. There is a large fluffy 2 inch head that is pure white in color and has great retention with some nice dense bubbles and some sticky lacing.

S - Yeast notes and some fruit juice notes as well. Apples and pear come to mind. There are some spice notes as well including pepper and coriander. Clean malty grain aroma is present as well as some slight white wine notes.

T & M - Flavors of apple and pear juice as the nose indicates with a nice yeast flavor. Some slight sweet notes of clove and some nice spice as well. Coriander is quite present and some slight peppery notes are present as well. The flavors are quite clean and crisp. There is some nice champagne and white wine notes with great fluffy and crisp carbonation.

D - Great Tripel that is enjoyable and easy to drink. The ABV is not too intense either.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured from a bottle to goblet. Had a dull orange color and a thick, cloudy consistency. There was a big, creamy, long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A sharp aroma of malt, yeast, fruit, and esters.

T: Tasted of yeast, fruit (apples, a little citrus), malt, some fruity esters and sugar. Not what you'd call a groundbreaking flavor, but definitely pleasant.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

D: Overall, a solid, drinkable beer.

Large bottle, with best before dating, $9.99 at DeCicco's in Ardsley, NY. Pours cloudy, medium apricot, light and gauzy off white head, that stays and leaves nice low sheeting and bits of lace. Some sweet candied fruit and a hint of smoke in the nose. Quite dry Tripel, with ample hops adding an almost woody note. More fruit, some light spicing. Different, tasty, refreshing. Well done and quite enjoyable in a maverick sort of way. Worth a try.

Decent beer, nothing special in Belgian terms, but overall not bad at all. Poured with a fantastic foamy frothy sudsy white head and lots of clumpy lace. Clear yellow gold color. Aroma is mild malt, hop, grain, and yeast. Flavor's like aroma and fairly mild. Palate is interesting crisp carbonation and soft body. Finish is like flavor with a little alcohol showing up at the end. Easy drinking beer.

3.1/5  rDev -14.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

Purchased at State Line Liquors in Elkton, MD.

Served at about 55 deg. into tulip glass.
Unfortunately upon popping the cap, there was a slight audible noise which is not a good indication. I believe that this was not capped properly and as a result, is completely flat.

Pours light golden in color with very little haze.
Hints of grain, yeast, and green apple fruitiness. Again, the lack of carbonation is really limiting this experience.
Tastes balanced. The hops are very nicely balanced with the malt and the yeast flavors are pretty mild.

33 cL bottle. Pours a cloudy light golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, sweet fruits (apple, pear, melon), corn malt, and a touch of skunk. Flavor is spices upfront, with a sweet, fruity, malty finish. Light and crisp, quite pleasant. Very nice!
