Trois Pistoles "Three Coins" Served at 55F in a wine glass.

A: Served from a 12 oz bottle. Cloudy dark brown with red hi-lights. Tall head no lacing.

S: Fruit, spices, slight sour aromas.

T: Start is sweet fruity - raisins, plums, figs with subtle spiciness from yeast., Middle is bready with subtle camel & toffee, finish is mildly sour. Not as sour as the Dutches, more along the lines of the subtle sourness of Monk's Cafe. A very pleasant mild sourness that adds a nice complexity to finish and hides the abv well.

M: Medium body, high carbonation.

O: Outstanding Belgian dark ale. More session able (even at 9%) abv than most Belgian strong dark ales. The sour finish is what makes this my favorite Unibroue ale. Worth cellaring to see if it improves - the website suggests 5 years. Also, the low price point on this makes it extremely affordable.

A - Pours dark copper with a quickly dissipating ivory head. No lacing.
S - Sour, malts and dark cooked fruits give way to a wine note. Dark cooked prunes, raisins, dates and cherries.
T - Quite sour, lots of winey fruit notes, virtually no hop or malt presence. Excellent winter weather beer. Let it warm up!!!!!!
O - An excellent unique beer.
V - Good Value.
