3.39/5  rDev -10.8%

Part of Belgian Beer Research Project, Sabbatical 2013.

One finger uneven white head leading to thin broken layer, quick dissipation over medium gold body, a bit of chill haze, minimal visible carbonation. Coriander and noticeable sweetness in the nose, almost a candi sugar aroma. Boozy taste masks the coriander notes, funky mouthfeel, not very effervescent, this seems a bit under-carbonated. The alcohol is pretty overwhelming, wonder if this might be better after a year or so of cellaring. Don't think I will have this again.

750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 1/10/2012. Pours fairly crystal clear golden amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big pear, apricot, apple, grape, banana, clove, pepper, candi sugar, light honey, light bread, and phenolic yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and moderate malt flavors; with good strength. Taste of pear, apple, apricot, light banana, candi sugar, clove, pepper, herbal, light honey, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, banana, clove, pepper, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and pale malt notes; with a good malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a crisp and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Tripel. Good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt flavors; and surprisingly crisp sipping for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.
