I didn't have a best by date on this bottle so I not sure how old the ale was when I bought it. Smelled of fresh bread when opened and it had nice carbonation but little or no head. Excellent flavor of bread and yeast and a nice amount of carbonation on my palate. I would like to try it again to see if the offering varies.

Funny thing about this beer is the more I drank it, the less I liked it. Left a bitter aftertaste. I'll stick to Maudite.

Like triples but don't love them but this is very good. Well put together where the spice level is perfect. Very drinkable but a bit carbonated. Not my favorite style but I can appreciate this beer.

Poured into a tulip beer glass a hazy tangerine-golden color. I poured it quickly into the glass and a large lacy head was created, but the big lacy head dissipated quickly. The effervescence though was strong and throughout the drink there was a stream of bubbles rising to the top. The aroma is very gentle. It has a gentle clover fragrance. It is like setting out a blanket in a park in a field of clover, but you have to stretch your head beyond the blanket to smell the fragrance of the clover flower. The beer has a slight pear and small orangy tinge of taste. The end of the taste though with each sip is spicy, but balanced to the touch. This is an excellent Belgium Tripel and reminds me a great deal of Delirium Tremens, which is saying a lot and says how good this beer is. This Quebec, near Montreal brewery, does it right. Enjoy this quality Belgium Tripel category beer.

I am not a fan of craft beer, and hearing that this was from North America concerned me. This beer surpassed my expectations. It does an exceedingly great job of meeting or beating many Belgian breweries.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a chalice.

A - Poured a murky golden orange, big, crispy head.

S - Spicy esters, banana, and a bit of straw.

T - Very sweet notes of tropical berries and tart fruit dominate from the front, with a light, almost oat-y maltiness. The sweetness fades into a residual spiciness.

M - Medium-light body, crisp carbonation.

O - The flavors are few, but are very pronounced and speak well in the beer.

L: Hazy straw gold under a 2” white foam column that dissipates to a thick film that grips the side of the glass.
S: Banana, orange peel, spice.
T: Big fruit flavors feature banana, orange, and tropical fruit.
F: big and creamy with above average carbonation, medium body and a little bite from the carbonation.
O: A big yeast driven beer full of Belgian flavor.

Was ready for something new and different and well, I found it. Crazy awesome beer from the north. Very complex beer so you can pick up different things with different aged bottles meaning a bottle that is two weeks old will taste very different from a 4 month old bottle and I believe I have had both and both to my surprise were good! If you want to introduce a friend to something different then let them try this heavily yeast driven beverage and see what they have to say. Most will really enjoy it!

Somewhere in my top three. I just love it. And I can't get it here in Thailand. That sucks.

Either I got a bad bottle or they brew this stuff with old cigarette butts.. I took 4 sips and pored it down the drain .. maybe O should have taken it back at 8.44 a bottle

Finally got one of these. This is probably the most widely available and most acclaimed Belgian beer in the world.

A - Pours like champagne! Nice deep golden color. Huge white head with fine bubbles that explode out of solution even with a slow pour. Slightly cloudy from the yeast and the lacing/head-retention are ridiculous (just stays forever).

S - Lots of the typical Belgian yeast spice character (phenolic) predominant. Just underneath that is a nice sweet malt character, graininess, and some slight alcohol but probably just because of the effervescence.

T - On the tongue the Belgian character holds true but isn't the only player with lots of the sweet malt. It has great depth of flavor without being too heavy handed on any trait. It's a moderately complex beer that is very drinkable. The finish is mostly crisp with some slight sweetness but dry enough to quench the palate.

M - Medium mouth-feel. Extremely high carbonation. One of the highest carb'd beers that I've ever seen that didn't start gushing when I popped the cap. The higher carb lent itself to the drinkability making the body lighter and making the flavors pop, but in this case the carb seemed prickly on the tongue and did leave an acidic tang.

Overall, a tremendous beer. I would say this is probably one of the most stylistically perfect beers that I've had. I liked how the Belgian flavor was the show but there were so many other flavors that were balanced and individual but culminated into one very good beer. I would prefer Chimay White but this one deserves big respect and would always be a welcome beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a nice yeast aroma that is well balanced and not off-putting.
Appearance- Pours a golden yellow with a thick white head.
Taste- Fantastic flavor of yeast and malt, the ABV is well masked.
Palate- A medium bodied mildly carbonated beer.
Overall- A world class beer, this should be on everyone's must try list.

Pours a hazy and bubbly orange/gold with a very bubbly, white head that leaves lacing all down the glass.
The aroma is loaded with banana and coriander with a hint of citrus and yeasty funk. A slight alcohol sting in the nose as well.
Phenomenal taste. Banana and orange peel and coriander spice with an almost-puckering dryness and a bit of Belgian funk. A little boozing and a finishing bitter kick.
Mouthfeel is medium and smooth with appropriate carbonation.
Just a great beer.

- golden hue with nice thick micro bubble foam head
- smell is slight malt sweetness but mostly mellow yeast
- citrus with mellow yeast notes, leaves the mouth salivating for more with its nice slight sweetness
-smooth as can be light carbonation pop but not much at all
- overall one of the best tripel there is!

My first EVER true craft beer, tried at a pub in Dallas TX a few years back. Poured from bottle, beautiful golden appearance with nice bright white foamy thick head, and almost perfect taste. Subtle high abv, great taste of malts and yeast, very subtle sweet citrus flavor, beatiful lacing down the glass. Very, very nice. Great beer for "the end of the world" ;)

4/4/15 (Bottle) - Golden pour with generous white head, mild carbonation. Yeast and bread aromas, with a hint of citrus. Excellent taste of malts, yeast, somewhat sweet and balanced. Excellent feel, smooth, nice kick to it, and with the large bottle you are set for the afternoon.Overall excellent beer!
