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.

Pours golden with a fine white foam etched atop. Smells like a belgian yeast, some hints of funk, plenty of sweet golden ale. Taste is metallic, sweet, with sweet corn and some bicarbonate. The flavor really tastes like a watered down tripel, some spices. Thin and sharply carbed with a dry finish. Meh.

Again, looking for a wonderful Belgium tripel or quad experience and I was disappointed. The beertenders don't really post descriptions of the beers on their hi-tech display board--maybe everyone already knows the characteristics before they walk in. I wish I had researched it more before ordering.

The beer was cloudy and colored like a Hefeweizen, smooth but no body.
Very fruity and light tasting.
It was drinkable but not memorable.

I don't think I'll try this one again unless I want something very light in flavor.

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.

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.

I went into this beer with restrained but dignified hesitance, I will freely admit that, but, with an open heart and eager mouth, no doubt. While it is not a bad blended beer - yes, you get the sweetish bubblegum-y, peach-laden trip and tangy, sourish gueze- it makes me think of a BBQ pulled pork pizza, frankly. I love me some barbecue and the ChainGangGuy would be hard-pressed indeed to willingly turn down a hot, cheesy pie, but together? No. No, thank you. I would much prefer these two beers components separated (but equal).

(on tap at Belgian Cafe - served in a tulip)

A: very cloudy, honey-colored liquid.... no head, surface foam, or lace... about right for a gueuze, but not for a tripel... a little disappointing

S: smells pretty much like what it's a blend of: a tripel and a gueuze... fairly assertive malt, faint caramel, with the subtle floral alcohol of a tripel.... distant, fragrant, navel-orange citrus in the background - adds a touch of brightness to the aromas, but doesn't enhance the otherwise weak intensity of them

T: the funk comes through a good bit more in the taste, however, this is still, at the very least, dominated by the malt and floral notes from the tripel.... honey-ish, cereal flavors from the malt... tiny, vaguely 'yellow' grapefruit tart/tang in the aftertaste - not much gueuze coming through - whatever portion of it that is blended in merely serves to provide a subtle accent to the overall flavor... I'd stop short of saying it adds 'complexity' as the beer, in total, has a fairly messy, amateur composition (or perhaps has experienced degradation from poor handling?)

M: moderately soft and smooth up front... good bit of the roundish, delicate viscosity retained from the tripel... long finish, ultimately ending dry.... mild, citrus-juicy, acidic film left over on the palate... perhaps this is how it's supposed to be - kinda flat - clean, but flat

O: this might have been a more dynamic, more interesting beer had the base tripel been better and the blend showcasing more of the gueuze... gonna hesitate to recommend this to customers
