4.16/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

From a 330 ml bottle (Dated October 2013 on the cap) into a chalice.

A-A gentle pour produces about two fat fingers of light tan head. The foam is dense and retention is quite good. There is a good show of carbonation in the glass, too. The beer is clear and orange-ish golden in hue.

S-The aroma offers of lots of fruity, warming alcohol. I smell green apple and candy sugar, in particular, as well as a bit of bubblegum, some pepper spice, and a bit of lightly bitter, grassy/straw-scented hops.

T-The taste is not afraid to show its 10% ABV, but the taste is less assertive than the smell, which is a good thing. The flavors are still fruity (green apple flesh) and sweet up front, but there is a bit more spice (pepper and clove) and light lemon tartness. The finish is lightly bitter and suggests dry grass and spice.

M-The body is medium in heft with an above average level of carbonation that hurts the smoothness factor.

O-This is a pretty solid tripel. It is very aggressive, with the alcohol but the flavors are nicely balanced, so the beer manages to get away with being so in-my-face. The hops are especially well-done here. The mouthfeel is a little fizzy for my liking in a tripel, but overall this a solid beer that I will drink again if I need a break from my usual Karmeliet fix.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Yellow color with a one finger with short retention but always keeping a thin plate.
Interesting aroma with predominant notes of melon, dry fruit, pineapple, wheat, pine, green apples and white wine.
Flavor of Cointreau liquor, spices, lots of yeast, dry fruits, champagne, herbal hops, green apples, white tea, melon, flowers and honey. Dry, bitter and acid aftertaste.
Medium body with effervescent carbonation. 10% abv is felt; well it is hard to disguise an elephant with a skirt.
Seemed to me like a mix of Belgian IPA with a Tripel. An alcoholic punch and a bit too sweet resulting in low drinkability. A must for Tripel lovers.
