4.88/5  rDev +17.6%

Deep golden peachy colour, good foamy head. Aroma is spicy, and fruity, with lemon, pineapple, figs, some vanilla and I notice some chocolate in the background.
Strong body, is almost edible.
Lively bubbles, oily in tongue, taste is acid, apples, peaches, flowers and the chocolate background. It seems to me kind of a mix between a white and an abbey beer.

One of the best beers I've had in a while!
The smell is rather fruity almost like an apple cider and they you taste it and it taste like carmelized sugar.
The head is wiped cream or like whipped egg whites and like many belguim beers is not meant for chugging. You want this one to last! ...actually I got another one and it wasn't as good. I don't think these age very well.

This is a special beer.

*added notes

After having quite a few more of these I have to add that the beer's apple smell has a sour taste. I believe the beer has had a saison mix added or a sour/aged beer has been blended to the brew. Brilliant, complex, you will need to drink at least a dozen of these (though the course of a month) to understand this one.

4.9/5  rDev +18.1%

One of my all time favs. Served at a great temp with a grand, billowy, soft, foamy, frothy, fluffy, off white head that sits there for a while before burping and lots of clingy lace. Color is a clear amber with loads of bubble trails. Aroma is yeast on top, then malt, vineous. Flavor is like nose with lots of yeast bitterness followed by hop, just a little sweet, good carbonic tang, white wine, apples, pears, hint of funk. Body is champagne like, expansive, yet of substance and carbonation is out of sight. Finish is like flavor, without flaws and lingers pleasingly with a friendly alcohol warmth. Don't know of another tripel like it. Delightful beer from the Mad Brewers!

4.95/5  rDev +19.3%

Appearance – This had one of the biggest heads that I’ve seen in a long time. This thing was monstrous. It rose up like an irritated Godzilla woken by an errant Japanese speedboat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It fell incredibly slow, and laced the heck out of my glass even with a 10.0 ABV.

Smell – Deep, musty aroma of yeast initially fills the nose. Later, if you’re patient, the bready scent is replaced by the smell of light, summertime fruits. Melons, raspberries, and powdered sugar fill the nose.

Taste – Oh, man, is this good. This is bready yeast at its best. I love baking bread. I bake all different kinds of bread. There is nothing better than sneaking a piece of dough halfway through the rise, and it tastes exactly like this ale.

The overt sweetness of table, powdered, and brown sugar is complemented by the Fleishmann’s flavors and the fruity presence of banana, apricots, cherries, and fresh pears. The deep musty overtones are complimented by sensational spicing.

There are also big alcohol notes in here as well, warning the drinker to slow it down. Of course, I don’t.

Mouthfeel – Full with medium carbonation and a full body. This felt great.

Drinkability – If I chug a fifth of 10.0 ABV ale will I die? I hope not. This is not chugging ale, though. This is beauty and harmony in a bottle. It went down smoothly and left you begging for more.

Comments - The Bros say to rate the beers using personal preferences and, personally, this is one of the best bottles that I have ever laid down.

Poured into a goblet at The Nook in Huntsville, AL

A- This draft poured a clear amber, I was expecting more of a cloudy haze. This beer did not look like it tasted.

S- Greatness! Clovey & green apples with finishing tones of lemon & raisins.

T- The taste is exceptional, just a tad bit dry.

M-The mouthfeel is clean and spicy.

One of my fave tripels.

Pours an absolutely ideal shade of gold. A bubbly, fluffy head is perched upon the top, thanks to the strong, continuous carbonation. No visible sediment. Very picturesque. The aroma is practically god-like. A complex and intriguing marriage of bitter and sweet. Desirable yeast aroma is present along with caramel, both sweet and sour apples, pear, banana, lemongrass and spices. Taste - velvety and bready Belgian yeast and malt. Tart and tropical fruits, lemony hints. Spicy phenolic characteristics as well as a definite bitter hop presence. Honey, although not nearly as sweet as the aroma may have suggested. This beer really coats the mouth well and the finish is somewhat dry. Some Belgians are borderline cloyingly sweet with no other complexities - not so at all with this masterpiece. One of my absolute favorite beers. I cannot imagine how this could get any better!
