4.25/5  rDev +2.4%

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.

Pours burnished gold, almost orange. Head is massive and rocky with sheets of intricate lacing.

Smell is peppery yeasty spices with a touch of medicinal quality. Underlying sweet malt and mild citrus fruitiness. Definite alcohol presence.

Taste is sweetly fruity and malty up front. Orange and apricot. then the herbal yeast character kicks in with pepper and coriander. finish has mild hop bitterness and a decent spice zing. Lingering warming alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, very soft and smooth.

Overall a balanced and interesting beer. Highly recommended. I would drink this often if it was readily available.

11.2 oz bottle with the cap stamped July 2010. Pours a slightly cloudy, orange-golden color. Holy carbonated! Settles down to a chunky head with great head retention. Nice lacing on the glass as well. That wonderful Belgian clove/ever so slightly-sour/funkiness is nice and strong. Alcohol comes thru just a bit, overall it's very well-hidden. Medium body but a dry crisp finish with a clean bitterness.

A wonderful Belgian Tripel with loads of flavor. Compared to other Tripels, its got great balance. As with everything I've had from De Dolle so far, this tastes like a beer that had a great fermentation.

This was the last bottle that we had sitting in one of the coolers at work. I decided to give it a go and poured it in to my Duvel glass. Jul2010 stamped on the bottle cap.

Dark cloudy gold color. The head was big and bone white. Lots of brown floaties in the beer, leading me to think that we had this bottle in the cooler for quite some time. Active bubble rose from the bottom of the glass, pushing some of the floaties in to the head, making it look like some one ashed their cigarette in my beer. Lots of sticky lacing lined the glass.

Some sweet malt, clove, banana, and yeast. A little bit of alcohol. The taste is actually more bitter than the nose. Kind of spicy and there is a nice taste of alcohol. The sweetness borders on a nutty taste. Very enjoyable taste.

Incredibly smooth triple. Very nice flavor. All of the sediment in the bottle and glass was not very appealing, so I'll need to track down a fresh bottle and give it another shot. Overall, an incredibly nice beer.

I drank this from a 12oz bottle into my Rochefort chalice.

This bitch pours a dark gold with a hint of orange. There is crazy carbonation with at least five fingers of off white head, that is is very pillowy. The retention is good staying several minutes with great retention.

The aroma is on the lighter side with a little floral arrangement and a a hint of dry white wine with grass, a sauvingon blanc?

The taste is light and very smooth to drink, total session beerish. The flavor is light flowers and grass from start to finish.

The feel is nice and lasting, incredible drinkability.

This is an awesomely easy to drink tripel, especially at 10%. My only complaint is that the flavor is a light, wish there were some bold flavors that would make this world class.
