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.

Misty shiny golden with a full finger white head, recedeing slowly and messy to a long-lasting frothy floating cap.
Gueuze strong on the nose, works like an upgrade to the usual tripel fruitiness, with cider apples, slightly fermented pears, quince, white grape wine, some funky damp woody notes, bit of hay, peach, sweet freshly juiced orange. Hint of spicy yeast, really faint malt.
Taste follows the nose, with sweet and sour apples, hint of yellow cherry, crunchy pear, cheap dry white wine, some lemon juice, with a big wood barrel note up front. Light funk, with some bitter grass and dankness, and then a bit of sweetness settles on the palate, after the mild acidity dials down. Hints of sugared baked apple, with a bit of spiciness from the tripel yeasts. Dry, quite bitter finish.
Aftertaste has apple peel, white wine barrel, yeast, dried hay, faint sugars and hops. Medium body, prickly carbonation hand in hand with the nice dry feel, a few clicks south of a regular gueuze lambic, granted.
A tasty blend that worked out just fine, but hard to call it balanced. But there's something good coming out of this chaos, still.

Tart over ripe fruit with a hint of pineapple and malt on the nose. Pours slightly hazed gold with a touch of copper. The beer enters very creamy, fruity citrusy lemony with a hint of bread, large pitted fruit, grape and something tropical. The rich malt and fruit flavors balance the tartness. the carbonation is very fine and above average while the body is light for as big the flavors are. Very refreshing and drinkable.

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.
