look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Served in my La Fin Du Monde Tulip glass.
Appearance: Pours a very hazy, extremely pale color with a four finger head that disappears quickly. As long as the beer is in your glass, there is an onslaught of carbonation streaming to the top.
Smell: White fleshed fruits, pear and apple, a little bit tropical, spicy yeast and some funky, cheesy notes as well. Very pungent and ripe all around.
Taste/Mouthfeel: The taste is similar to the nose, lots of the pungent fruit and lots of zesty yeast spice, and some underlying funk. The front is a nice carbonation kick that moves into a hit of bitterness and an onslaught of flavor and a smooth, sweet finish The fruit flavors linger more than the peppery notes, likely due to the sweetness. Not as dry as most tripels. Unbelievably complex, this beer has alot going on.
Overall, this beer is unique in the style and has an unbelievable amount of flavor, very hard to tame if you are not familiar with belgian ales, it is very complex. From start to finish this beer is incredible, make sure it is not served to cold.

Poured ~50 degrees F into a weissen glass. Left about an inch in the bottom of the bottle, swirled it, then tipped in the lees.
A - the first one I poured had a perfect 2-3 finger head, the second one I poured looked like it was going to be OK, but then the head went crazy and towered over the glass by about an inch. It never spilled over though. The head was a light off white color, and very dense and frothy, like a freshly whipped meringue. The one that went crazy took a long time to settle down. The beer itself is a cloudy gold. I can barely discern what seems like a perfect amount of carbonation through the haze.
S - Not as much on the nose as I would like from a tripel, but I'm happy with what's there. A whiff of something fruity, like some vague citrus up front, but then I'm picking up mostly on baking spices. There's also a subtle hint of some barnyard tang and a quite noticeable dusty quality.
T - Drinks a bit like a kabinett riesling with notes of white grape and pear, the baking spice offered by the nose comes through. There's a little bit of bretty tang. The alcohol is well disguised.
M - Well integrated flavors, medium body, perfect amount of carbonation. Quick, dry finish. Quite like the mouthfeel on this one.
One of my favorite tripels. I'm drinking this one in lieu of champagne to celebrate a special occasion right now.
