I never mention bitterness in my reviews, my bitterness taste buds are ridiculously under-


APPEARANCE : Hazy golden/yellow with a very, very generous white fluffy head. Beautiful, even though the head can be somewhat excessive.

SMELL : First nose is malty hay and yeasts. Second nose adds some fruit to the mix, typical of the tripel style - banana, peach. Flowers as well. Third nose amplifies on the previous two, with a touch of booze, but this is definitely positive.

TASTE : Follows the nose. Yeasts, malts, discreet hops blending in with a hay side. Fruits.

MOUTHFEEL : Ample, rich and generous. Great, great texture. The mouthfeel is probably this beer's strongest point. Incredibly pleasing.

OVERALL : One of the very, very good tripels I've had. Maybe not as awesomely incredible as the Westmalle Tripel, but definitely up there with the big boys. I'm so glad this beer is easily accessible in my area.

Ah, perfection. I have had many tripel karmeleits and it is a time for a review. Had at Yard House on tap in Fenway. This has a bland blonde color which masks the taste. Smells of a malty scent. The taste though resonates with a great blend of hops and malt which is hard to match. I like this a lot. Great stand by. My go to fantastic beer. Can't say enough about this perfect beer
