4.25/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: hazy pale yellow in color with a one finger head that lasts a while. Nice lacing paints the glass.

Smell: grass and yeast spiciness is easily detectable.

Taste: nice malt sweetness is balanced with a moderate bitterness level, lemon zest, green grapes, grass, and alcohol. Yeast spiciness lingers around awhile too.

Mouthfeel: crisp from start to finish. Somewhat dry at the finish too. Medium bodied beer. Aftertaste is long as the flavors stick to the tongue and don't seem to leave.

Drinkability: awesome tripel but the alcohol levels drop this score down a bit. Find this one and enjoy it. It's great on tap.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a slightly hazed golden amber with a great big fluffy head that lightly laces the glass.

Smells like a NZ Sauvingnon Blanc. Spritzy orange marmalade with floral tones. Citrusy and grassy.

Taste is more of the grassy marmalade with a nice hoppy drying with a hint of grass. All these taste meld together into one nice beer.

Mouthfeel is lightly tingling with a nice dry aftertatste. If I had to guess I would say a tannin like dryness that comes from oak ageing.

Very drinkable. I never tired of this one and kept lamenting that my glass had less and less as I drank more an more.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Dense, bright white intact foam of a head that plasters the snifter's sides with sticky, thin and intricate lacing. Cloudy pineapple and light bronze in color with chunks of sediments.

Candied sugar, mildly sweet aroma; a touch of corriander. Fresh, tropical fruit ripeness: cantelope, honeydew. A touch of powdery apple and lime.

Moderately candied-sugar sweetness that underlies the entire flavor profile: subdued melon and honeydew with a green apple tartness. The sour quality isn't mouth puckering, but it definitely is the primary flavor of this tipel. A touch of spice; corriander/pepper with an aftertaste of sweet honeydew.

Medium bodied; smooth and almost creamy on the palate. A mild spritzy quality given the bottle conditioning.

The abv% is noticeable but doesn't overpower the complexities of this tripel. Another homerun by de Dolle.

4.25/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: With foam spuming from the bottle, this beer pour a cloudy honey color with a huge head that provides dancing patterns of lace all over the chalice

Smell: Overripe melon, pear and apple, coriander and candi sugar, with hints of alcohol

Taste: Starts out with a blend of fruit and herbs, with apple skins, pear and coriander; by mid-palate, it almost starts to burn from the peppery spices; after the swallow, the candi sugar and overripe melon flavors arrive, along with plenty of alcohol to wash everything down

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and effervescent; warmth on the way down the gullet

Drinkability: Quite impressive, but the cacophany of flavors is not something I would want everyday

11.2 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. First DD beer I've had that hasn't spewed foam all over the place. Not really the most attractive shade of brownish-orange, but the head on it is great. Classic tripel nose of apples and pears, with orange oil, pepper, clove, and grass. Very pleasant-smelling. Flavor is also very smooth and full, with zero alcohol presence to hinder the enjoyment. Estery up front with pears and candied orange, then a nice caramel/toffee character that takes over until the finish, which is grassy with a modest but welcome bitterness. The body is sublime on this one, perfection. The only complaint here is that it is over-carbonated. A few swirls around the glass immediately reconstitute a nice head while simultaneously getting rid of the excess bubbles. In terms of flavor and aroma this is basically the quintessential tripel. Great beer.
