4.33/5  rDev +14.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A nice Belgian experience!! Poured from a 750 ML caged and corked bottle into my trusty Chimay goblet. A light orange color, opaque, lots of sediment. The head is white, delicate, full of carbonation. Head retention is average...the medium sized head fades fast, but the covering at the top of the glass holds strong throughout. Lacing looks thick at first, top of the glass has a lot of lacing, but as you drink, the lacing is very delicate and spotty.

Smells good..yeasty, sweet, apples and pears and a bit of funk (like a ripe cheese).

Great Belgian taste, sweetness, funk, fruit, and richness.

Mouthfeel is rich and inviting, Any alcohol presence is the warming variety not the off-putting alcohol burn. I didn't notice that much alcohol presence at all.

Drinkability is good. I drank the whole bottle, am feeling the effects a bit but would gladly take more if it was offered. A nice Tripel.

3.74/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle, at 8% ABV, another part of the '1/2 Meter of Beer' mixed pack available here in Alberta.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden amber hue, with a teeming tower of puffy, rocky, and eventually Dairy Queen creamy opal head, which leaves a proper array of sudsy webbed lace all around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of semi-sweet bready caramel malt, buttered white bread, a warm orchard fruitiness - peach, pear, and overripe apple - mixed table pepper, mildly spicy yeast, honeyed candi sugar, and a bristling, nose-twitching alcohol astringency. The taste is bready, somewhat biscuity pale malt, more booze-tinged apple, pear, and banana generic fruit bowl sweetness, sugary, floral field honey, active yeast bitterness, and a sidling, well-knowing, and sort of metallic edginess.

The bubbles are pretty well sublimated, barely a wisp of their initial splendour to be found at this mid point in the game, the body just on the lee side of a steady medium weight, and so-so smooth, the yeast and alcohol having their way right now. It finishes still on the sweet side, as things go, the caramel malt, additional sugars - alcohol and otherwise - kind of collaborating on the death knell (to me, at least) of this particular offering.

For the style, this does well enough, I suppose, providing a sweet, yeasty, and above all, boozy sort of experience. However, I am quite on the fence about such a plainly one-sided kind of deal - where be the hops, at least in the basest interest of balance? This comes off as the beer that all the platitudes and pandering in the world wouldn't be able to deter those who think that it's really all that good of an idea in the first place.

A: Pours a clear deep gold and sudsy white head with plenty of lacing.
