4.64/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: cloudy, light orange/dark yellow, well retained white head.

Aroma: fresh cirtus orange and light coriander with slight banana. Wheat base aroma.

Flavor: citrus/coriander and banana jump out first. Wheat follows through with a nice finish. Very clean and balanced, in no way artificial. Little alcohol noticed for a tripel.

Feel: very carbonated, oats give it a thicker body, but not heavy.

Overall: very pleasant beer, well balanced, great gateway Belgium beer for folks looking to explore.

Side note: Poured from bottle at McNellie's Oklahoma City, Ok. I have bought before, am buying now, and will buy again! My wife says the perfect combination of alcohol and flavor on a tripel...

Poured into a goblet out of a green 750ml bottle.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a fluffy two finger white head. Excellent head retention as is appropriate for the style with some decent lacing.

Very spicy aroma with lemon peel, coriander, and bread. Some honey and orange also sneaking in. Very nice.

The flavor is loaded with orange and lemon peel along with more coriander. A very nice bready malt backbone and absolutely perfect for the style. Fluffy mouthfeel thanks to the abundant carbonation and a little sticky on the finish.

Overall, an excellent Triple that hits every mark for the style. This is up there with the best as I can't really find any flaws here.

330ml Bottle in Blackfriars, Glasgow (£4.95):
This one was a really nice Belgian ale from the start, much as I've come to expect from beers hailing from the country. Tripel Karmeliet was quite a spicy offering with a very lively and well-carbonated feel to it that proved highly enjoyable and every drinkable. Whilst I wouldn't rank it as one of my favourites in the style it was definitely one worth trying and proved to be a fairly good example of the style.
