Notes/Commercial Description:
Vicaris Triple-Gueuze is a Belgian Abbey Triple. A creamy white head billows above a honey-gold-colored beer. The nose has notes of tart vanilla and spice while a full body and long finish are perfectly balanced by the fine, dry gueuze.

I thought this beer was a bit of a mess. Like funky sparkling apple juice. The rating reflects input from others who liked it more than me.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange body. Small white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Smells like mostly tripel. Bready malts. Some orange and very light phenolic notes.

Taste - Starts off bready. Oak lends a damp and slight cardboard flavor. The blended lambic shows a little later with some lemon and tartness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. High carbonation.

Overall - It's ok, but not anything I'd pick up again. In fact I might not even finish my small pour.

Bottle, unknown date, if any:
Pours an effervescen, lightly hazed golden. Head reduces to fairly thick coverage, lacing the glass a bit. The nose has a hint of that farmhouse hay/earthy scent, but I think the fruit shines a bit more. I get apple and pear, maybe a hint of melon. There is a bit of funkiness in the background, near the end of a good whiff.

Taste starts out carbonated, which adds a biting feel to a pear-reminiscent fruity beginning. The light farm notes are there, also, but more floral/meadow-like than earthy/farmhouse. The taste dries slightly, adding a slightly cheesy feel and funk, in the end, but the carbonation and fruit (which turns a bit tart, almost lime-like) play long into the taste.

A very enjoyable, easy drinking beer. Both styles make an appearance in the taste, quite well balanced. This is definitely something to have on the odd occasion it's available and I'm in the mood for a lighter feeling Belgian beer.
