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.

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.

330ml bottle, poured into a delirium tremens tulip

Pours with a dark yellowy orange body, very hazy, thick fat white head, slight yellow tinge

Smell, apricot and peach, very ripe fruit, perfumy flowers. Little bit of lavender

Taste, thick alcoholic fresh very ripe fruit, estery sweetness, some almonds and marzipan. Lasting caramel sweetness on the finish

A big bold flavourful strong ale, very good

Well balanced, fresh with final siete lemon. Persistant mousse.
A little bit sparkling but don't worry

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.

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.
