I could not pass up yet another tripel from Unibroue. Cork topped 750 served in Chimay chalice. Beer pours super pale golden, slightly cloudy, with a nice white head. Sweet aroma, reminiscent of cider -- I really like it. Reminds me of CBC tripel threat, which is awesome. Flavor registers quite a bit lower on the sweetness. Grassy and herbal, with a relatively thin and fizzy mouthfeel, and a hint of sugar in the aftertaste, but still pretty dry. Fantastic balance, actually. I don't think it has the depth of flavor of La Fin Du Monde, but it has every bit as much drinkability and more. Quite a delicious treat.

750ml bottle poured into my large Gulden Draak tulip, Eau Benite is hazy, dull dark gold with a large, quickly dissipating white head leaving no lace.

Smell is big banana esters, fruity and overripe.

Taste is similar, lots of banana, and just a touch oxidized. The alcohol is well hidden, and there's a nice clean maltiness.

Mouthfeel is on the dry side, with full but soft effervescence. Medium light.

Drinkability is ok, the alcohol is well hidden, save for a little spiciness on the back-end. The esters are really strong, and with the malt give it a slightly dirty vibe. Not their best effort, but a solid trippel. I'm getting a little tired off the Bananas Foster taste of many Belgium blondes, so there's perhaps a negative bias.
