07/02/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. All the cliches I run through miss the mark here. This is an extremely refreshing beverage that has a clean, refreshing effect on the palate, a substantial mouth feel/body but leaves one wondering what just happened? Magic is all I'm left with.

01/16/13 On tap a Rattle n Hum, NYC. Yes, yes, yes. If it wasn't for the 7.7 ABV I'd be all over this stuff. Seductive in a Rubenesque way. Lots of body. As a huge Fin du Monde fan, she needs to watch her Ps & Qs as I could swing this way with no regret.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

Nearly clear golden yellow in the Gordon's thistle glass with an attractive foam. Big aromatics with the touch of phenols. Plenty of carbonation on the tongue.

Hot with alcohol even with the moderate alcohol content for a Tripel. Some spicy flavors and the drying sensation. Fruity but quite dry, in keeping with the advanced age of this stuff. "Best before" date is 08-02-14, so this has been around awhile. Some hints of pear and apple skins.

Quite drinkable, but at this drier end of the Belgian spectrum it gets a little sourish and funky in the aftertaste. From the bottle-capped 750 ml bottle purchased at Grapevine Liquor in Denver. Discounted to six bucks.

$ 9.99/bomber at Oppermanns Cork ‘N’ Ale
Best before 08-02-14 at 50 degrees into snifter
Aroma of spice and over ripe fruit
Head small (1.5 cm), white, fizzy, quickly gone, a partial 1 mm ring extant
Lacing – none
Body orange, hazy
Flavor – very little – a little spice and maybe a hint of fruity esters and yeasty phenolics. No alcohol, no hops, no malt (well balanced), no diacetyl. What flavor there is quickly ends.
Palate light to medium, watery, soft carbonation

Well, I hate to say it, but I’ve finally found a loser from Unibroue, at least to my tastes. Very watery and flavorless, although the 7.7% ABV is well hidden and has potential to sneak up and slam you. This gets a decent rating because it meets the definition of a tripel but I found it pretty flavorless.
