Konginshoeven Tripel is presented in a 750mL bottle w/ release, pop of cork and an active pour. At 8% it's strong but the drink inside does a better job of hiding the fact than other tripels on the market.
Appearance is an ale like brown with a slightly off-white head. A ring of foam stays with the beer all the way down the glass but there's little if any lacing to accompany it. In smell we have some sweet malts, nuts and a pear like fruitiness. In the taste you'll find a decent balance of fruit and malts and caramel.. however the hops are lacking, leaving a somewhat prolonged semi sweet after taste. Despite this the beer is still quite drinkable. It has a high alcohol content but it's masked very well and the taste, while somewhat sweet, is not in your face like some tripels.
Mouthfeel is good, aided by the pinpoint sized carbonation, creating a sense of smoothness. Drink-ability is good for a bottle but is hindered by the aforementioned sweetness when considering a second.

3.74/5 rDev -5.1%

Appearance- Pours dark orange with one finger white head which stays on top all the way down , well carbonated and leaves lacing all the way down the glass.
Smell- I get grain, rum/sherry Xmas pudding on the nose. Pleasant.
Taste- Alcohol at first then dark fruit, sweetness and finally the hops at the end. A big heavy beer with lots of flavour.
Mouthfeel- Full mouthfeel but not creamy or fizzy.
Overall- A big potent filling brew with lots of flavour would recommend to any beer lover who hasn't tried before.
