3.56/5  rDev -2.7%

Had this one on tap with dinner. Pours hazy deep golden with a frothy white head. Aroma of sweet fruits like pears, some honey, hints of spice. Flavor follows the smell closely with light sweetness and yeast funk. Easy drinking, medium bodied, with medium carbonation. Is have this again, though there are better options when in Belgium.

I had already had one Tripel while at Cafe 't Pothuiske (on 04Oct12), so I opted to try one more. This one fit the bill, a 0.33l bottle for €3.90.

I filled the tulip with a medium golden brew. It was mostly clear and had a frothy, slightly off-white head. The topping lasted nicely and produced goid lacework. Nose was fruity, a touch tropical, and had hints of spiciness. Body was medium, but it had a tad more prickly roughness than I like.

Flavor was also fruity, with mild tropical action (some mango and pear) hitting the palate. Was slightly dry at the finish, with a bit of yeasty spice present. Overall rather simplistic, yet still tasty, imo. Prosit!

A - Amber colored with an enormous white head.

S - Fresh and fruity with malts - very inviting.

T - Fresh and full of taste, in the middle pallet there is a metal like taste observable.

M - Light bitter finish and light sticky in your mouth mixed with a medium carbonation.

O - A good triple but not something special. De almost metal like taste in the middle is a killer for this beer.

'Mother Superior'. Tripel, 33 cl. bottle, bb june 2010.
Recommended by the guy at a local liquor store.

Colour orange-brown, with cream coloured head, that hold up decently. Ok carbonation.

Smell is malty, floral and citric hops, belgian yeast.
Taste is pretty spicy indeed. Pepper and clove and coriander. Malts and citrus in the background.
Not sweet, but reasonably dry in the mouthfeel. The alcohol is well masked, and the brew is still ok refreshing overall.
A tripel in the Belgian tradition, but on the agressive side of the spectrum. It's still well balanced and overall a good drink in a bar.

Drank from my Duvel Tulip.

A - Pours hazey honey colour with a tight, white fluffy head that stays the course.

S - A bit of grain and orange citrus.

T - Plenty of passionfruit notes, some malty notes follow with some yeasty notes to finish.

M - Medium to light body with good carbonation.

D - An easy dring beer for it's abv. Not a bad triple.

Fantastic Tripel that stands out on its own due to the distinct nuttiness and buttery mouthfeel. It also looks and smells as good as it tastes! Maybe a tad too sweet for some, but I think this just adds to its charm. Very easy to down (silky smooth on the palate) and one that I have gotten into trouble with on many occasions. A great session tripel and easily of my favorites.

(Poured into tulip glass)

Appearance - Deep orange/honey color. Pours a thick creamy white head with excellent retention and nice lacing. Nice carbonation.

Smell - light, citrusy smell, light malts

Taste - caramel, not too sweet, bready with a slight hoppish metallic aftertaste.

Mouthfull - round but not too thick, alcohol well disguised

Drinkability - quite enjoyble and drinkable, but at 8% you still could not have more than a couple without being seriously slowed down...

Light orange copper color.
A lot of foam, creamy, not too carbonated.
At the smell malt and fresh hop, with hints of honey. Sweet fruitiness, with a touch of melon.
Malty taste, with honey. Not fresh and inviting as the one on-tap.
Average body.
The aftertaste starts fuity, and then a bitter end, but not enough.
