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.

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.

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.

Tasted from 11.2oz bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a thick but quickly receding white head. Nose of belgian hops, light spices, and some wheat. Flavor is slightly sweet with light hops and wheat notes. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a medium length bitter finish.

This beer is a very cloudy yellow-gold color and sports a decent white head that contributes plenty of lace. The aroma is fruity, with a touch of alcohol, and an annoying distant solvent like smell. The beer has a sharp flavor, a bit of fruit, some mild pale malts, a hint of spice, and some alcohol. The hop presence is fairly low, but there's a decent balancing bitterness. The beer is medium in body, with a slight spritz due to carbonation. Some yeast flavor comes forward in the finish. This isn't a particularly great beer...middle of the road.

Bottle: Poured a deep hazy blond color ale with large foamy head with great retention and perfect lacing. Aroma of Belgian malt with some floral hops and a lightly sweet finish. Taste is also dominated by lightly sweet malt with some dry floral hops and a yeasty and bread-like finish. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no alcohol is apparent. I thought this was a nice example for the style but a yeast is a bit too dominating.

On tap at Max's today.

The beer pours a solid gold color with pretty good head retention and sticky lacing all around. The nose gives one the impression that this will be a fairly light beer, with an aroma of ginger, lime and honey. Flavors on the palate replicate the nose, except this is a very light tasting beer, that is a bit thin and watery. There is even a touch of bitterness on the finish, which adds a bit of complexity to the beer. Alcohol is not the least bit obtrusive, but this beer is so light on flavor, I can't really describe it as very drinkable.

Nothing wrong with this beer, but it's hardly anything to get excited about either. Probably won't order this one again, and I think I'll skip the stout (also on tap today) as well.

BB 11-2006. Good presance with foggy orangebrown beer and a great and lasting head. Nose is good malts that give it a dry note but even more candy that's sweet with caramel. Taste is that of a good fermented beer that saw too much candy. Wheaty carracter comes out more now as in the nose and aftertaste is good and bitter. Mouthfeel is qiet fine having good( quiet high) carbonisation and taste that's not showing anything overdone. Drinkability is ok but could have something more as fine candy and bitterness.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
