341 mL bottled on 3/14 at 40 degrees into snifter
Aroma citrusy
Head small (2 cm), white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing excellent – covers entire inside of glass with very tiny bubbles
Body medium yellow, cloudy
Flavor citrusy and herbal – more medicinal than pleasant; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation

Appearance 3.25, Aroma 3.25, Flavor 3, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.25. Final weighted score: 3.1625
Well, what to say… The palate is the highlight of this ale with the medicinal flavor holding it back, although (quaff), the flavor is intriguing (quaff). This ale is growing on me (quaff). The lacing is excellent and very appealing, the nose citrusy but weak. The 10.2% ethanol is well hidden which could be dangerous (if one is inclined to drink more than one), but then if one is good, two should be better. We need a sixth judging variable – addiction potential. This one would get a 5.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: It has a beautiful hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down very slowly and leaves nice fluffy lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of Belgian yeast, grapefruit, oranges, lemon zest, peppery spices and some breadiness. Smells great!

Taste: Like the aromas, it's very citrus forward (grapefruit, orange & lemon zest), a touch of grass, yeast, some peppery spices and some breadiness.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. Wow, what an outstanding Tripel! Dieu du ciel never ceases to amaze me.
